Local Comic Book Shop Wednesday – BMV

BMV is not, strictly speaking, a comic book store.  Instead, it’s a used book store that devotes a lot of space to comics; almost the whole 3rd floor.

Their stock is mostly made up of used books they bought from customers (the buyers seem to have high standards, as the quality of the used books is typically pretty good), and remaindered books bought from publishers (remainders are what’s left over after the publisher has sold all they could.  They are usually marked with a marker on the top spine.)

In addition to the used stuff, they do carry a few new titles, though if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll find a better selection elsewhere.

If you’re looking for a deal, an out-of-print book, or you just want to explore, BMV is a great option).

Beguiling, Toronto

Toronto’s best comic store, the Beguiling.  This is their old, location, shortly before they closed down and moved to a new one. If you zoom in, you can see that they were liquidating their stock; all books and comics were 75% off.  We… took advantage of the sale.
