Grumpy Wolf offers quality comics for the discerning collector.

As collectors ourselves, we know that condition is of importance, and take pride in making sure that our copies are high-grade, and free from significant defects.

We might not be the cheapest (although we're seldom the most expensive, to be fair) but we hope the consistent quality of our books and our service will keep you coming back for high quality comic collectables.

We primarily stock comic books that may be of interest to collectors - variants, particularly striking covers, first issues, later printings, new characters, etc. - and are making plans to expand into original art and potentially other high value collectibles such as statues.

If you want to place a regular order with us, we're happy to manage pull-lists, and are happy to discuss taking orders for ratio incentives together with all the qualifying issues pre-FOC.

All raw comics will ship bagged and boarded, in 9.4 condition or better. Most copies will be better, but we can't guarantee 9.8s - sadly not all modern comics are produced to that quality (due to weak paper stock, printing issues, casual handling during shipping, etc.) and most of the copies we receive from the distributor are between 9.4 and 9.8.


If the back issue copies that we're offering for sale are of a lower grade than 9.4, that will be clearly specified in the product listing, both in the item title and in the description.

If you feel that your books have arrived in a worse condition than you were expecting, please get in touch, and we will do what we can to make the situation right.

We maintain a regular supply of slabbed issues, and aim to price them below the market average - we'd rather sell the slabs that we have listed, and get them out the door, than have them sit on the website for months!

If you're an international buyer, get in touch and we can talk about how we can make the shipping costs make a bit more sense for you - we're happy to offer modest discounts on large purchases to make it a bit easier! Shipping to Europe and North America has been enabled; packages will ship using tracked services, with an appropriate level of insurance to cover loss or damage in transit. We will ship to other destinations, but shipping costs will need to be calculated manually, so please get in touch if you are looking to purchase from a location that isn't currently enabled.

For those who are curious about the store's name, the original Grumpy Wolf is my dog Winter, who is essentially a small husky.

He's not actually all that grumpy, except when his regular comic order is delayed in shipping, and then he gets exceptionally cross...

We know that you have a choice in UK comic stores, and we appreciate your custom!
