Watch out! A NEW Wow Comix store opens in Bury this week! Here is all you need to know…

After a few weeks of moving we have finally left our shop at number 3, The Rock! The doors of our brand new shop on Bury Market are finally opening on Monday morning (7/2/22)

After a few weeks of dismantling, painting, and long box hauling we have finally left our shop at number 3, The Rock! The doors of our brand new shop on Bury Market are finally opening on Monday morning (7/2/22), and the people of Bury shall finally be saved from the tyranny of a local comic book shop-less existence once again!

You will now find us on the corner of Bury Indoor Market (Unit 21) and we will be open for business 9am – 5pm, Monday – Saturday! You can access it by either approaching from the indoor market area entrance within the Millgate, or via our main entrance outside the market hall which faces out across Angouleme Way should you be approaching out of the Millgate Shopping Center via Market Parade (The b&m side..), or from walking around the outdoor section of the market itself. It is also conveniently situated opposite one of the main pedestrian subways that lead into the town center. See the map below for a closer look!


Inside the new store, you will find all of the usual wonders that you might expect from us. So of course that means it’s rammed full of great vintage British and US comics, magazines, annuals, mugs, posters, toys, cards, models, and of course many other collectibles and critical reading material!

If you want to keep up with all the going’s on at Wow Comix Bury, make sure you are following us on its own Facebook page and our Twitter! You can also subscribe to us here on Wow Comix World of course where, alongside our customer-led news and reviews articles, we share all the events, photos, products, and other news and updates from all of our shops!


To our online customers, please be aware that we are not re-instigating the in-store pickup option at this moment in any of the stores. If you have any questions on the matter or anything regarding the new store do feel free to contact us via the contact form on www.wowcomix.com.

The process of leaving 3, The Rock brought back a lot of great memories for us as it’s been such an important part of our company as a whole since we moved there, having held our main office and online department in behind the shop front. Over the last few months, these parts of the business have now been relocated to other premises.

Goodbye 3, The Rock!


However, with closing the doors on the old shop we don’t find ourselves feeling overly sad to leave, simply because we are super excited to be opening some new doors (literally, it has two entrances!) just a stone’s throw away, and we can’t wait to see what you think of it! It opens at 9am tomorrow and we hope to see many of you there over the days and weeks ahead!

3, The Rock Is Dead! Long Live 21, Bury Indoor Market!


Wow Comix World Has Moved!

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!

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!
