Strange Adventures' new home

Hurray! The beloved comic shop is staying downtown.



Late in 2012, Calum Johnston got the news in that “eight to 12 months” the building that his Strange Adventures (5262 Sackville Street) called home for over 20 years would be redeveloped, therefore forcing the shop out. Luckily though, the long-loved comic store will be able to stay downtown; Strange Adventures will move into a bright space with big windows in the lovely Georgian building on the corner of Prince and Lower Water streets (5110 Prince Street, the former home of the Dancing Beaver Gallery). “Our aim is to be open in the new space for the beginning of May,” just in time for Free Comic Book Day on the first Saturday in May, says Johnston. “It is a bright and shiny new canvas upon which we hope to mark with more of the best comics and graphic novels the world has to offer that will intrigue and entertain.” Strange Adventure will keep its Sackville Street location open on a month-to-month basis. “It will be a ‘sidekick’ store with great deals on toys, comics, graphics novels and more that we just can’t lug down the hill to the new store.”
