Here’s our map of British and Irish comic shops and venues that often have comics exhibitions or comics events. We’ve also included the known locations of sites of comics interest, like statues.
This map was lat updated on 10th October 2019, updating details about Aberdeen’s comic shops (thanks to Greg Kitchin, who reminded us the Forbidden Planet has closed a while back, and that both Asylum Books (which has a mail order service) and Plan 9 sell small press comics).
Mail order companies are also included, and we’ve also identified comic shops happy to stock small press comics, an addition brought to you thanks to help from Lew Stringer.
The map is generated using Google Maps; if we’ve missed a shop, or we’re listing one that has, sadly, gone out of business, please do email us and let us know and we’ll make a correction as soon as possible.
Our thanks in particular to downthetubes member Colin Noble for his work on this aspect of the site.
Please note, despite the ever-improving accuracy of search engines, it’s worth checking a shop is still open, or its opening times, before you make a trip.

Please note that if you want to contact a particular comic shop, you’ll have to follow the links through on the map. For the most part the locations provide information sourced from Google Maps.
Some shops don’t publish public email addresses but they do have a fill-in form on their site for enquiries – and of course, you can always phone them, too!
