Tucked away in an office building in Downtown Montreal, Carsley’s Comics can be easy to miss for those not in the know. But comic book fans would do well to take note of its location and track it down for some of the best deals you’ll find in the city on a ton of comics both new and old. They have an excellent subscription service so make sure you start your reserve there.
They recently took part in the Montreal ToyCon and we were happy to have them selling their wares and even giving away a number of items in celebration of Free Comic Book Day (May 1st). Personally, I picked up Batman: City of Crime for an awesome reduced convention price and I’ll definitely be heading back to their store very soon.
If you’re looking to check them out, you can head to Peel metro or drive down and get yourself to:
1117 St. Catherine Street West, Suite 917
Montreal, Quebec, H3B 1H9
Here’s a handy map! Plus, they can also be reached at: (514) 289-9761 (ask for the comic book store)

We have been getting quite a bit of questions on the next show date of the Montreal ToyCon. We are currently looking at relocating the show to downtown Montreal. To try and keep the dealer table and general admission price down, we do not plan to have the show at the Convention Center (Palais des Congres) or the Place Bonaventure. These two locations cost a fortune to rent and frankly…are a rip off.
We firmly believe in keeping low cost tables for the dealers so they can display a wide variety of products as well as offering great prices to the public. The success of this toy and comic book show depends on all the hard working dealers who offer rare collectibles at a very reasonable price. Of course, the show is also dependent on the scores of happy dedicated customers attending. The combination of both has resulted in a great successful show thus far.
We would like to thank all our exhibitors:
Lego Club (QueLug). It was a pleasure meeting all these Lego experts and seeing their creations was a real treat. We hope they return to the May 2009 show. We have some cool pictures of their display. Photos
501st Legion Quebec Garrison (Alliance Imperial). These are the costumed characters as pictured above. From Star Wars Stormtroopers to Transformers, they really looked great. Most of the costumes were homemade but they look so realistic, it was impressive. You cannot buy these costumes at a store. You can take a look at some of the photos from the show. Bravo…guys and gals…can’t wait to check out their new costumes for the next show. We desperately need to see Darth Vader. Photos
