5, Osborn Street, Glasgow GL 5RB
Tel: 0141 237 1137
Stocks graphic novels, trade paperbacks and books and has a “modest” coffee stand. They don’t stock comics as such but they are interested in stocking UK small press although preferably if they’re trade paperbacks.
“With the Plan B Bookstore, we’re trying to show people in and around Glasgow that graphic novels are no longer the sole realm of misanthropes and comic geeks,” says owner Tom Green. “Graphic novels can be a way to enjoy an old favourite in a new light, such as the Arthur Conan Doyle, HP Lovecraft, or Shakespeare books crafted into graphic form; or as an introduction to new artists. We’ll also have talks and other events so readers can interact with the writers and artists that we stock.”
