About Big B Comics

Proudly Canadian, Big B Comics has been serving the comic book needs of Southern Ontario since 1996. In 1999 we opened our flagship store on Upper James Street in Hamilton, Ontario. In 2008, we assumed 100% ownership of Blue Beetle Comics in Barrie (now Big B Comics Barrie). Our success is based on a three-fold approach to sales: excellent selection, excellent service, and fair pricing. We want to shatter past perceptions of comic book stores and, rejecting the old model, have created a professional atmosphere in a forward-thinking company. In fact, we have been awarded the prestigious Harry Kremer Award for Outstanding Canadian Comic Book Retailer.


Product Knowledge and Diversity 

Graphic novels, comic books, and Japanese Manga have entered into mainstream culture and are becoming an important part of public libraries. Our staff can show you which graphic novels are right for your library or classroom based on a number of factors ranging from genre and subject matter to critical acclaim and art style. Do you know that comic books are now the subject of serious scholarly study in universities around the world? Wouldn’t you like to include some comics with real artistic and literary merit in your collection? Let us show you how! 

How to Order 

Please feel free to contact us at 905-318-9636 or email We will be happy to speak with you about your library and the type of collection you are trying to maintain or create. Always flexible, Big B Comics is happy to meet your billing and invoicing needs and accepts a variety of payment methods!

Discounts too!

Our standard discount for libraries and academic institutions is 20% off. The discount grows when you factor in that we will always calculate our prices based on the fair current US/CAD dollar exchange, something which you can not always expect when you buy elsewhere. We will ignore excessive Canadian cover prices and only discount off of an adjusted fair current exchange. Fair current exchange discounts will save you and your organization money.
