London Borough of Hackney, England

Nobrow Comics

A comic book store that puts the marvel back in marvellous. 

UPDATE: This store is no longer in business (August 2015). A note on the door is referring to their homepage instead.

London has a good share of comic book shops, but Nobrow stands head and shoulders above them as a bastion of independence in graphic form.

Since 2008 they’ve been doing their bit to keep print alive all across the globe, with an in-house magazine and publishing arm. They even screen-print short editions of their books downstairs. With titles like ‘Time to Make A Monster’ and ‘Welcome to Your Awesome Robot’, this is less Marvel, more marvelous.

They also represent a number of fantastic local and international illustrators such as McBess and Luke Pearson. The shop definitely deserves a look from anyone with an interest in graphic arts, comics or the printed page at all.
