Comic stores in Malaysia.
You could always get Marvel Comics and DC Comics at the book store chains such as MPH bookstore, for example at One Utama, or Borders at The Curve. However, most of the comics there are compilations, omnibus or graphic novels. If you prefer the whole set, for example the Secret Invasion in one hard cover, then you could easily get that from MPH and Borders. Other than omnibus, you could also buy graphic novels from these bookstores.
However, the bookstore chains does not sell the single issues.
So, where to buy comics in Malaysia, especially the monthly single issue one?
There used to be a few comics specialty shops around Kuala Lumpur, but some have closed. At this moment, I am familiar with only three comics shops in Malaysia.
My favorite place for my comics is at
THE MIND SHOP *Sorry, the shop has been closed.
F33, 1st flr, Centre Point Bandar Utama
3 Lebuh Bandar Utama
47800 Petaling Jaya
Just enter Centre Point Bandar Utama to you GPS and you are good to go.
At the Mind shop you could open a standing order account and place your order for your favorite titles. I pick up my comics once a month with 10% off the regular price and I don’t need to pay any deposit. My comics are also place in bags with boards, so I don’t need to purchase it separately. Cool!
Currently I have The Avengers, Uncanny X-Force, Justice League and Superman Unchained on standing order. Other than comics, the Mind Shop also sells comic accessories such as the comic bags, boards and boxex. Please refer to my article on Protecting Your Comic Collection – Boards, Bags and Boxes for the samples that are available at the Mind Shop. If you are looking for a one stop center for you comics collection, this is the place.
Earth 638 was previously located at Atria Shopping Center, I was updated that they have moved to Kelana Jaya @
No. 31J-2, Kelana Mall,
Jalan SS6/12, Kelana Jaya
I have been to Atria once, but not to their new place at Kelana Mall. Other than comics, Earth 638 also sell t-shirts and action figures. You could also get comics bag for your comics, but they only sell one type of comics bag, no comic boards or boxes (Maybe they have them now).
Other than Earth 368 and the Mind Shop, I also found out that Comics Corner still exist and they have a few branches in the Klang valley.
The Comics Corner
No. 36, Jalan SS15/4,
Tel : 03-5634 7945
There you go … 3 comics stores in Malaysia for you to get your monthly doses of Marvel and DC Comics + others. If you are looking for a comics speciality store in Malaysia, check out these shops. Out of these, I recommend the Mind Shop.
