downtown st catharines comic book store

Originally known as Len’s Odds and Ends, the store was opened in March 1980 by Len Booth and has remained in the same location ever since. At the time, it was a Sci-Fi bookstore with one rack of comic books. Len started to stock used comics and then new comics in 1982.

July 2000 Kim and Cheryl Stevens bought the store and renamed it Mostly Comics. Kim, a lifelong resident of St. Catharines, was actually one of Len’s first customers. Now Mostly Comics sells comics and comic related products and apparel, as well as graphic novels and Anime products. The store also carries movie, tv and music action figures and apparel. A selection of board games provides entertainment for the whole family. If you are looking for something specific, give Mostly Comics a call and we will find it for you.

In August 2017, Kim and Cheryl sold the store to Norm Hearn. Norm was also one of the original customers of Len’s Odds and Ends and has bought his comics through this store since it opened. He continued a business and friendship with Kim and Cheryl when they owned the store, and was happy to take it over after retiring from his social work position. He opted to pursue a long-term hobby as a business opportunity. Norm has been fortunate enough to surround himself with enough young, intelligent, knowledgeable staff that can help meet all the various customers’ different interests and needs.

Come by and say hello to Norm and the team, as well as the dogs, Molly and Logan. We welcome new customers and highly value our existing customers. Let us help you find your next favourite comic book!
