Great Waterstones. They have a good children’s book section as well as fiction and non-fiction. Nice environment.

Always incredibly friendly and helpful. Could easily spend hours in there, and no doubt spend a lot of money aswell. Will happily order something in if wanted

My sons favourite place and the place I've never walked out of without spending money. You love comics superheroes get down there.

Picked up an excellent Frazetta book while looking for information on Italian fumetti and the silver age of comics - had a great and unexpectedly wide-ranging chat with a staff member about many different things related to the comic book industry and was really impressed with the enthusiasm and knowledge about comics as a serious art form. If only all comic-themed shops showed this kind of enthusiasm and helpfulness . . . Probably the best comic shop I've ever visited!
