A short history of Komico

Komico is one of the first comic book store in Montreal.

Founded in 1982 by comic book passionates, it has been through tough times like the fire back in 2014 that forced one of our many changes of address.

In the words of Lee in August 2, 2017 for the 35th anniversary of Komico:

August 1st we celebrated our 35th year in business….(so hard to believe). We were not the first shop to open, I believe we were the 3rd after Nova and Cap Quebec, but we seem to have stood the test of time, nonetheless. Nova has been closed for several years, and Cap is no longer run by the original owner, so I guess I am old man comic in this city now…. I have met so many awesome people through this business, and shared so many stories of my trials and tribulations. Had some amazing times, and some disastrous ones as well.

As for the customers, obviously too many to name, but many are regarded as friends and are no longer just customers, Tons of assholes too, but they always provide the best stories! I have seen tremendous changes in the industry as you can well imagine, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss the old days, before there were so many electronic diversions. People lined up outside the shop to pick up Alpha Flight #1 or Wolverine #1, the passion people had for comics was amazing….those were days! So in the words of the Grateful Dead……What a long strange trip it’s been…..
