Meet the owner

Rob Clark’s two favourite superheroes are Batman and the Punisher, which is interesting because neither one actually has super powers: they aren’t bulletproof, strong as steel or supersonically fast. And maybe that’s why Rob likes them, because he isn’t those things either. He started Words and Pictures in 1987 after suffering a back injury while working construction. Since then, he’s made the store into a place of legend for comic aficionados.

Words and Pictures specializes in older comics. If you’re looking for the vintage books from the '40s, '50s or '60s, this is your best bet. The store also sells board games, Magic: The Gathering cards, Dungeons and Dragons supplies and comic memorabilia like t-shirts, statues and figures.
