This is my favorite store in Toronto to find old silver age books. Most of the other stores in the city focus on more current titles. The owner of this store definitely has an affection for older books so if you're looking for your early Spectre appearance or some such book, you'll have a good chance of finding it.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have great sales such as the periodic one where you can bring in old graphic novels and trade them in for store credit!
They have a great selection of new comics and graphic novels. I find their backstock prices a bit high at times for more recent books but their older books they grade and price very reasonably.
