Wednesday is the best day to pick up comics from the new comics section but Alpha Comics offers an in-store subscription service.

How does the subscription service work?
It’s simple. After the terms of service is agreed to, we create a list of the comics (min requirement is 5 ongoing titles) you want to subscribe to. From that point forward, until you cancel the series, each future issue is ordered in for you and placed on hold.

How long will Alpha Comics hold my comics for?
Comics are held for subscription holders for a maximum of eight weeks. If the comics on hold can not be collected within the allotted time or if no contact with Alpha Comics is made, the subscription will be closed and the comics will be placed onto the rack for sale.

How much does this service cost?
The Comics Subscription Service is absolutely free and requires no deposit. The only requirement is that you subscribe to a minimum of five ongoing comic series.

I don’t live in Calgary can Alpha Comics provide a mail order subscription?
YES! Everything else on this page aplies except we ship your comics to you. To get started, email Alpha Comics at
