  • Keep an eye on the posters - the best signings and events are all happening right here!!
  • Simply one of the best comic book stores in the world. As well as having loads of other stuff. If u visit london you simply have to come here. I've done a couple of signings here too.
  • Follow us on twitter @forbiddenplanet
  • Comics, toys, comics, tee shirts, books, book signings, comics - oh, and downstairs they've got a load of graphic novels. And comics.
  • Such a fun place to be at! Great comic store with toys & board games on the first floor and a HUGE selection of comic books, graphic novels in the basement. Nerd Heaven!!
  • The perfect geek store. Awesome!
  • Semplicemente uno dei negozi pi nerd di Londra! Un must per ogni appassionato di Manga, Videogames e merchandise vario!
  • Loja completamente insana pra quem gosta de quadrinhos ou sci-fi. O ouro est no subsolo. Tente se controlar.
  • Strangely popular with nerds.
  • One of the best comic book stores on earth and most probably in the universe. The Anime and the Manga collection and the collectables alone are worth a multiple joygasm!
  • The best (well at least the biggest) comic shop in London. Check it out if you're feeling nerdy.
  • I found Labyrinthe, Goonies and Masters of the Universe Merchandise here. This is comic nerd's heaven.
  • Impresionante... visita obligada en londres si eres un poco friki
  • Best comic shop in the UK!!!
  • Check out Gosh Comics in Berwick Street. Doesn't have such a selection as Forbidden Planet, but it's a proper comic book shop, no silly toys and not a tourist attraction
  • Huge DrWho inventory
  • I just could not resist it, I bought an Adipose. This is the place for sci-fi and cult collectors and fans and the book shop has best selection of sci-fi and fantasy titles in UK.
  • A place for any geek like me to hang out!
