CHATTER: Little Island Comics reopens on College Street (Spring 2018)

May 1st, 2018 · No Comments

After closing its doors for what might have been the last time in December 2016, Little Island Comics has reopened at 323 College St., beside its parent store, The Beguiling Books & Art. Beguiling and Little Island moved from their locations on Markham Street to make room for the Mirvish Village redevelopment.

The comic book store for kids was the first of its kind when it opened in Mirvish Village in 2011, and served as a hub for young readers. The store also hosted many kid-centric events and classes on how to make comics.

“Independent bookshops are important spaces for learning, for exploration, and for building community, especially for young people,” said store manager Andrew Woodrow-Butcher. “The community has been showing us lots of love during the last week, and we are looking forward to serving them in our new College Street location for a long time to come.”
