It’s been a busy few weeks for us here at Wow Comix’s online store, as we have upped sticks from our previous home at Wow Comix Bury and moved into the much more spacious Wow Comix Stretford!
This means that in-store pickups will be still available from any store, but for new comics specifically, they shall be available in Stretford on a Wednesday and from Thursdays in Bury and Stockport. Either way, you shall still be notified by email as soon as your order is ready, and with us moving the online department out of Bury, it also means we are able to have the Bury shop back open again on Tuesdays and Wednesdays! See the full opening hours on our website.
Although our online store is barely over a year old, it has been growing rapidly and to keep up with the amount of space needed for the abundance of new stock that we’re currently in the process of uploading we decided that changing our location to the Stretford store would be the best decision. Although moving thousands of items has been a rather arduous process (as moving generally tends to be, we certainly dont need to be going to the gym this month after carrying all those longboxes) we’re certain it will all be worthwhile! But what is all this new stock that we’ve got coming?
Of course we wouldn’t want to give everything away, but as the eagle-eyed among you may have noticed, our Modern Comics section is currently sporting a flurry of newly-added 80’s/90’s Marvel issues, many of which are titles featuring everyone’s favourite webslinger and star of this winter’s biggest new movie, Spider-Man! Alongside Spidey are other Marvel favourites such as Thor, The Avengers, Fantastic Four and the X-Men, but as well as these currently available issues we also have some VERY sought after key issues on the way.
It’s not just these blasts from the past on the comic front however, as we also have the very latest brand new issues of all your favourite upcoming DC, Marvel, IDW, Dark Horse, Boom! Studios, Oni Press, Image and Dynamite titles available to pre-order. So, if you’re looking for some choice reads in 2022, why not check out DC’s ode to unorthodox Valentines in Weird Love #1, or discover the origin of the evil Uranos in Eternals: The Undying #1?
Still in the realm of comics, but a little closer to home, we are overhauling our British comic section over the coming weeks as we currently hold a massive amount of recent and vintage stock that is not yet uploaded. Everything from Vintage Beano’s, Battles and Eagles, to those great 90’s newsagent classics such as TMNT, Ghostbusters, 2000AD and many more are on the way, so watch this space!
Elsewhere online, Pokemon fans will be pleased to see even more rare cards being added to our individual cards section, along with more vintage trading cards from a huge variety of other franchises. If a trip down memory lane is more your style, then be sure to keep an eye on our vintage annuals and books sections, as we have a heap of old school favourites just waiting to find a good home!
There is loads more on the way too, but that can be saved for another time! So please keep checking in with us as we continue to grow onwards and upwards, and remember, you can still keep up to date with all of our goings on via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook too!
