New Hours, New Staff at the Comic Book Lounge

Our new outdoor sign will change the College Street landscape forever!
Our new outdoor sign will change the College Street landscape forever!

As we head into our second year of the Comic Book Lounge + Gallery, we’re making a few changes.

You may have noticed we’ve redesigned and recoloured the logo, courtesy of  Darwin Santos of Guerilla Printing. We decided we should align the colour schemes of the Lounge and Guerilla since we share the space, and we wanted something spiffy to adorn our new outdoor sign(!).

It’s taken a year, but we will finally have some outdoor signage on College (aside from our door sign natch), so we won’t be Toronto’s best kept comic store secret for long now…
