This store was a former Mad City. The website remains as Mad City, but there is not reference to this old name in the new shop. There is reference to ‘Halley’s Comics’ on the parking signs, as this is the name of the Diamond account. It seems there has been a lot of name changes. There are new release comics, some back issue comics, and a selection of TPB’s. Nearly everything in the shop is Big 5 publishers.

Loyalist City Coins & Books
Address: 86 Germain Street, Saint John, NB, E2L 2E7
Telephone: 506-642-3143

This store has been visited March 2011.

This is a classic used book store, piled high with product. Does not deal in new release comics, which would normally result in the shop being delisted but Loyalist has the largest and most diverse selection of back issue comics in Saint John, a much better selection than either comic book shop. If back issues are your thing, go digging here.

This location has gone through a few names and ownership groups. Originally it was Mad City, which was then part of the Reads United Book Exchange group. The former managers have reopened and rebranded as Heroes’ Beacon.

CHANGES – January 2015

Reads United Book Exchange (St. John) has been removed and replaced with Heroes’ Beacon (same location)

CHANGES – July, 2011

Enigma Comics and Games — Enigma is closed. When I visited in March 2011, things were clearly on the way down. Telephone disconnected. Facebook page down. Sackville is a very small town, population 5,400, with a small University, Mount Allison, with a student base of 2,300. It was a risky experiment, to open a shop in such a small town.
