Orbital Comics

    The comic world is ever expanding, and while the superhero has had a renaissance at the movies, stores like Orbital Comics are keeping the faith on the street. Located in the heart of the West End just a stone’s throw from Leicester Square, this indie store stocks a comprehensive collection of comics and related paraphernalia. The store is one long corridor and you’ll notice that as you descend deeper, the tone of the inventory shifts. Popular and new releases are shelved at the front, while rare and collectible issues, vintage toys and graphic novels are located further back. Here you’ll find anything from Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware, to Charles Burns and Joe Sacco. As well as offering the latest from Marvel, DC and Dark Horse, Orbital Comics has a gallery space, hosts signings, organizes costume events and broadcasts its own online podcast. And, best of all, you even get to pose for a photo as Thaw or Wonder Woman in the hand painted place-your-face board upon leaving.Show lessRead more
