5 Book Stores {and a Cafe} to Visit for Your Comic Fix

From Superman to Chacha Chaudhary, to even Archies, comics make life more fun and we’re not denying it. Unfortunately, Delhi doesn’t make it easy to get a hold of your favourite ones. We’re giving you a list of our favourite stores for when we need a comic or Manga fix.


They may not have DC and Marvel, but this website is great for literature lovers everywhere. They have the comic book version of classics like Macbeth, Abraham Lincoln, Pride and Prejudice and even Julius Caesar. In addition to this, they have Indian and Greek mythology, and a few kiddie options as well.

Shop online here.

Midland Book Shop

Midland is our go-to bookshop for pretty much all our reading needs, from the latest Salman Rushdie, and even for comics. They store an impress variety of comics, from the childhood favourite Archies, to Tintin and Asterix, to the more off-beat Japanese Manga. And the best part?

Daryaganj Book Market

This is where you’re likely to find that limited edition Asterix, Batman, Calvin and Hobbes, Superman, and all your other childhood comic fantasies.

Om Book Shop

While the Om Book Shops at the malls don’t store too many comics, the one at Priya complex proves to be more promising. With a great collection including Superman last son of Krypton, Batman year one, Spiderman spider verse, Phantom, and of course Calvin and Hobbes, it’s easy to spend hours in this store.
