Celebrating 30 Years of Comic-Kazi

July 1st marks our 30th anniversary! Can you believe we've been around for three decades?! We're super excited to be reaching this huge milestone as a family-run business. From our humble beginnings in Northland Mall back in 1994, then moving to our bigger location on Macleod Trail, and now settling into our current (and even bigger space) next to Chinook Station, it's been an amazing journey and we don't plan on slowing down anytime soon ☺️

It's all thanks to loyal customers like you that have made it possible through floods and the pandemic. Your support has kept us going strong. Comic-Kazi is all about our love for comic book heroes, manga and pop culture, and we're so happy to continue being a part of the growing fandom in the Calgary community. We couldn't have done it without you! Here's to many more years of fun, laughs, and celebrating being a nerd!
