Update on the map for UK LCS...

https://downthetubes.net/?p=114459

Thanks for that, I didn't know such a thing existed.

Wow, East Kent (my location) is really a wasteland for comics.

I'm not sure on the accuracy of the map though. I remember one of @Get Marwood & I rambles where he went to a LCS in Whistable and I visited a shop in Hastings where they a sold a fair range of comics although I think they were primarily a second-hand record store.

It's by no means definitive, relying on the heads up from fans. It's the best available at the mo(thumbsu

It does look a bit sparse over your way, but considering the Weald and surrounding area is mainly small villages,  not too surprising: I would have thought the coastal towns would have had a shop or two.

Funnily enough, I threw out all my wire coat hangers and now keep my clothes in filing cabinets.  :smile:

The Whitstable shop is primarily a DVD rental shop. Lots of cool stuff, toys and things but not many comics. No new ones.

I'm currently in Margate for a few days. Two comic shops there. One has about 20 boxes, mostly Marvel and DC. Not much good. The other has a lot of recent back issues and is closing down.

Neither are worth a dedicated trip. Not a Charlton, Dell or Gold Key to be found.

Cool looking record shop though down the road - the quote above the door made me smile

Not a comic to be seen.

That path takes you into a tiny fishing village called Skinningrove on the North Yorkshire coast.
