Help keep Ace Comics & Games open

Ace Comics and Games is a Brisbane institution. We’ve been open at our two locations in Annerley and the Queen Street Mall for 24 years!

We wholesale comics and graphic novels to more than 20 comics and game stores across Australia. Unfortunately, over the past couple of years, several of our wholesale customers have gone out of business owing us substantial amounts of money. At the same time, sales have been declining at our stores and we’ve found it difficult to maintain a full range of products.

The funds we’re asking for will be used to pay down overdue bills; expand our stock range and refurbish and upgrade our stores. We’ve already taken steps to cut costs but we need to reduce our outstanding debt.

Over the years, we’ve hosted innumerable gaming events. We’ve also supported comics and gaming through such activities as Free Comic Book Day; the Annerley Drink & Draw artists group; 24 Hour Comics day; Halloween Comic Fest; Batman Day and the GoPlay gaming convention.

We’re especially proud of our support for Australian comics. As well as carrying an extensive range of Australian comics in our stores; we’ve supported Australian comics crowdfunding campaigns and in 2014 we published Best Australian Comics 2014, a major anthology of original comics stories.

We are currently planning some special thank you presents for our donors  which will likely include t-shirts and laminated prints.

Hey Everyone,

We just secured a loan which should ensure our future success.

the past few months have been tough and we appreciate the support and good wishes every bit as much as we appreciate the financial support.

Like every business we'd be nothing without our customers.

Here's to the NEXT 20 years,

Ian Gould
We Made It!

Pan Petter is one of my favorite people in the entire world.

He's been an incredibly valuable employee at Ace Comics & Games for years.

Today I had to let him know that our financial situation is so bad that I had to let him go.

We really need people's help.

Hello everyone,

Unfortunately, yes, the fundraising campaign continues and we still need your help.

Sorry for not updating sooner. We had an offer of professional help to promote the campaign but it fell through.

Just saw update #10 and can't believe that an asshole has ripped such a great run store off. I sincerely hope that the person or persons are found and brought to justice. Best of luck with your campaign I will making purchases in store when I have cash (I also lost money due to someone stealing my debit card info and cleaning house). Keep it real guys and remember that only when things are at their darkest will the smallest glimmer of light shine its brightest. Good times will come just keep believing in yourselves and know that the community is behind you.
