Sign In Place

Above is the picture taken by Melissa of the sign that went up today. The background has also now been painted in so if you happen to be walking past 410 Lonsdale Street over the weekend, look up and check us out.

Big thanks to John and Sue Erickson for all their help providing the signage and Neville Whittaker and Erin Wallach for their assistance in putting it up.

The Early Days

Hey everyone,

 Thanks to our friend Eddie we have some behind the scenes photos of the early days of setting up All Star Comics. Don't worry, we're not going to spoil what the final look of the store is before you have a chance to come on in. This does give you some idea of what the space looks like and the work we are putting in. Above is the view from Level 1 410 Lonsdale Street.

Thankfully the temporary fridge was quickly replaced.

See those slabs of wood in the background? Let's just say they weren't exactly easy in their transportation to the first floor.

Troy plans away.

It was difficult to find volunteers for the sanding part of things.

We can assure you, the carpet is going to be steam cleaned.

Welcome to All Star Comics

Hi everyone and welcome to All Star Comics, Melbourne's newest comic book store.

We're working hard right now to make sure that we have everything you expect from a comic book store from day one including:
  • A wide range of new comics.
  • Solid catalog of trade paperbacks.
  • Our standing order/subscription service which includes discounts on stock.
  • New and vintage toys.
  • A number of key back issues.
We'll make it a priority to listen to you so we can order in the things you want to buy. If there is something you can't find, let us know and we'll get it in for you.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates or follow us on Twitter. Most of all though, prepare yourself for the All Star Comics experience.

The All Star Comics Team.
