Report The "I need to vent" thread in Banter Posted April 11, 2009 Suavestar, please come see us on Canada's west coast. We have some of the finest independent comic shops (in Victoria and Vancouver) you're ever likely to see. The Comic Shop on West 4th in Van. is a two story comic mecca. The best comic shop ever: http://www.thecomicshop.ca/ In Victoria we have three or four comic shops on one street. The flagship being Curious Comics: http://curious.bc.ca/ A clean, professional, well run establishment with a great selection. A real family joint. Then there's Legend Comics, Yellowjacket Comics and one other. These shops are more hardcore geeky with kind of a handcrafted vibe; original art on the walls, wooden shelving and old fashioned spinner racks. They are all enthusiastic and know their shit. I've picked up some obscure european stuff from Yellowjacket and Gaiman's Mr. Punch from Legends. Suavestar, don't paint all the independents with the same brush. There are some great comic shops out there. Look around you.
