If you go down to Granville St today…..

If like me, you like reading and collecting old comics, magazines etc, then you will surely love this place!

It’s called Golden Age Collectables, and is based at Granville Street with Robson St, in downtown Vancouver, BC almost opposite that old classic place, the Orpheum theatre.

Inside here, it’s a veritable Aladdin’s cave, with both new and old comics from all the well-known people like Marvel, DC and so on.

As well, you can buy collectible figurines and ephemera, books and much more. I was there a few weeks ago, after having had lunch at my favourite eating place, Taste of India restaurant, based on Robson St. It was indeed a heavy meal I imbibed in, and I wanted to burn off those calories as much as possible, before heading home, so I popped into this shop.

Little did I know I’d be there for a good few hours, browsing, asking questions and finally leaving with an armful of comics.

The Hulk, Superman, Spiderman, Green Lantern, X-Men…you name it, they’re all there.

Visit it next time you’re in town!

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!
