Comic Hunter

10-9675 av Papineau, Montréal, QC H2B 3C8

Located in north Montréal, Comic Hunter is the go-to place for both new and back issues of comics. It boasts over 500,000 items, most of which are comics, in both French and English, and, true to its name, staff will hunt down rare issues. If you don't want to spend a mint buying issues, you can rent them for a small fee.

Comicage Entertainment Inc

9675, av Papineau, Montréal, QC H2B 3C8

Located in the same building as Comic Hunter, Comicage Entertainment is a specialist in both vintage (1960s) and contemporary comics. All told, it has about a million items on hand, so it's likely to have that rare Silver Surfer or Wolverine issue. And they have toys as well, both superhero and sci-fi.

Librairie Crossover Comics

3560 rue Notre-Dame O, Montréal, QC H4C 1P4

These guys (George Mallari-Lee, Paul Landry and Ray Silas) are self-described comics educators. Their store began as a website, inspired by their mutual love of the genre. The Crossover Comics gang covers the wide spectrum of the comics mainstream in North America, but they make a point of offering international and indie comic book artists as well.

eXpertComics

7077 boul Newman, Lasalle, QC H8N 1X1

As a sign of their dominance in the comics market, these guys have a depot not far from their store location; both branches are in LaSalle. They cover toys, graphic novels and comics, including representatives of the Marvel and DC Universes, and specific series like The Walking Dead, Transformers and Conan. Order online or buy from the store.

Cosmix

931 boul Décarie, Saint-Laurent, QC H4L 3M3

In action for over 25 years, Cosmix is technically in St-Laurent and accessible via the Côte-Vertu Metro. It has everything from graphic novels to manga to contemporary comics. In addition to comics-themed statues, it's outfitted to satisfy your gaming or board game urges. Cosmix also has a searchable database and a couple of blogs where supergeeks offer expert reviews.

Drawn & Quarterly

211, rue Bernard O, Montréal, QC H2T 2K5

Perhaps the "Shakespeare & Company" of comics stores in Montréal, D+Q – as the store is often called – is situated in the historic Mile-End neighbourhood. It began as a single-issue magazine, and then founder and chief, Chris Oliveros, opened a store in 1989. In operation for over 25 years, D+Q publishes some of the biggest names in comics, specializes in graphic novels and holds numerous book launches for Montréal authors.

Librairie Millenium

7
451, rue Marie-Anne E, Montréal, QC H2J 2A2

This comics store is right in the heart of the Plateau. It's a specialist in French Canadian, French-language European and American comics, with an impressive stock, searchable via the website's database. Millennium Comics should be of particular interest to Francophones looking for European titles such as Thorgal, the Belgian fantasy series that has links to the Golden Age Tintin series.
