West End Comics is an independent, family run shop. We opened up because we love comics and realized that there were no comic shops in the West End to find our favorite books! We also wanted a place that would help build community and to that end we do much more than just comics. We are happy to celebrate our third year now- so apparently there are others who agree! Come to West End Comics and Buy Better Books!!
We love trade paperbacks put out by small press, indie stuff, things like that. Don't get us wrong, we've got tons of superhero stuff too - from traditional classics to all the new releases. Of course we also carry new comics- released every Wednesday. So we have a good compliment of superhero stuff and new and interesting titles that don't necessarily fit the traditional "comic" mold. We also have plenty of swag: action figures, statues,games, novelty items, cufflinks, piggy banks, kitchen ware, retro tin toys and more!! Of course if there's anything you'd LIKE but don't SEE, just ask us- we are happy to special order any item.
West End Comics is located at 1590 Queen St. West in the heart of Parkdale at the corner of Sorauren ave. We are halfway between Roncesvalles ave. and Lansdown ave. and are easily accessible by transit, car, or your trusty feet!
