Local Comic Shop Day!

  • Cosmic Comix & Toys 87 Mellor Avenue Catonsville, MD, 21228 United States (map)



On Saturday, November 17, join us as we celebrate Local Comic Shop Day (LCSD), a national event designed to celebrate locally owned independent comic book stores! We see it as a way to say THANK YOU for making us your local comic shop!

No kidding, folks, we couldn't do it without you. So, while the event is called Local Comic Shop Day, we're looking at it as...

Thank You for Making Us Your
Local Comic Shop Day

That said, to show our appreciation, we'll have numerous things going for LCSD...


First, and most exciting, we plan on having a new selection of swag with our beloved logo on in it! On top of the pens, mobile pockets, T-shirts, we’ve expanded the Cosmic Comix brand to include coasters, stress balls, and a new comic book carrying bag!

On top of that, we’re putting Cosmic Comix T-Shirts on sale for JUST $10 EACH!



“Cosmic Comix info? But I already know everything there is to know about my local comic shop!” Maybe you do, my friends, maybe you do. This will be for those who don’t know everything! Like the fact that we have a new comic subscription service! Or that we used to be located in old Ellicott City! Or that we send out a weekly email! Or that we set up a booth at just about every local event we can find! Or that Andy is Vice President of the Catonsville Chamber of Commerce! Or that the ceiling took eight months to complete!

Trust me, there’s a lot to learn, even uif you’re already an expert. But it’ll be much more fun if you bring someone who’s never been here before; A) you can show off how great we are, and B) you could learn a thing or two about a thing or two!



For the better part of the day, we will also be joining forces with the Bmore Into Comics community! Featuring local comic book creators showing, selling, and talking about their work!

Confirmed creators include:
  • John Bintz
  • Josie Breck
  • Orlando Caicedo
  • Jordan Clark
  • David Crispino
  • Charles C Dowd
  • Jon Eaton
  • Monica Gallagher
  • Gordon Harris
  • Kata Kane
  • Matt Kund
  • Shawn P. Murphy
  • Rafer Roberts
  • Anna Sellheim
  • Jennifer Zyren Smith
We've hosted Bmore Into Comics before and they are awesome people. Here's what they have to say about themselves:

“Our goal at Bmore into Comics is to get more people interested in and chatting about comics while supporting fine local establishments around Baltimore.

“Started in 2013 by Monica Gallagher, what began with six creators wedged inside popular Fells Point haunt Bad Decisions on a hot August afternoon, soon spread to subsequent shows in Hampden, Station North, and an art exhibit at Golden West.

“As comic book conventions grow larger and more intimidating (and more difficult for people to attend), we wanted to bring back a more local, inclusionary feel to the comics scene. Our events are free and open to the public and feature creators selling their work, panel discussions on process, and a lending library of rotating comics.” 

(PLEASE NOTE: The Bmore Into Comics crew will be here from 1 - 6 pm, but the store will be open all day from 11 am - 7 pm with specials and swag!)
