If you're looking for somewhere to source your comic books and D&D manuals, then this is the place. Forbidden planet has a lot of similar stuff, but despite being roughly ten times the size of Sub-City, it's probably got a slightly worse selection. And Sub-City isn't crammed to the rafters with plushies and glow in the dark lightsabers either, it's pure nerdnip. Only the good stuff.

My favourite thing about this place is the staff (normally just the one guy) who almost completely ignore you, leaving you to browse and read and make up your mind on what you want to buy without any kind of pressure. It's hands-down the best place in town for comics, D&D and even has a decent selection of board games. If you've ever thrown someone the Spock salute, you need to check this place out at least once.

One of the few nerd Meccas in town, Sub city is probably the best place to go in the city if you’re looking for roleplaying gear. It’s got a great selection of comics which would put it on par with the much bigger Forbidden Planet (which dedicates far too much space to geeky toys) but the tightly-packed sections filled with role-playing books are second to none. It’s not a big store by any means, but every item in there is gold and it’s unlikely you’ll find anywhere with such knowledgeable staff when it comes to comics and nerdery in general. Fantastic, central location too.
