Legends Comics & Books is distinguished from most comic book stores by its expansive and committed love of the medium and its respect for people who share that love. It is a place where comic books are regarded as art, literature, entertainment and valued collectables. What you’ll experience at our shop is a respectful and mature handling of the medium—with a sense of humour and light heartedness intact.
Legends carries the complete scope of current comics and graphic novels from mainstream and independent publishers. This includes complete runs of every major series in trade paperback and hardcover editions, reprints and studies of all genres in all formats, classic and perennial favourites like Batman, cutting-edge superheroes like Daredevil, ground-breaking literary prize winners like Maus and movie inspirations like Ghost World.
Legends is always interested in buying collections: don’t underestimate what yours is worth!
We are also happy to stock self-published zines, indie comics, and artwork by local and new talent.
