Wow, What can I say? Up until now I've ordered my comic books off of the internet. This is a shame because where possible I like to support high street businesses but there just aren't any shops of this nature near me.

Comic store l33t.

Much smaller than the geeky superstore Forbidden Planet around the corner, Orbital Comics does one thing and one thing only: comic books. The selection isn't as vast, but it is more selective. If you're a discriminating comic-book aficionado, Orbital Comics will appeal.

Even, you know, if it doesn't stock what you actually want.

I used to think the service was a bit...more
