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!
