Welcome to Chapter Three
For the past few months, we've been teasing a big change. We've never been shy about shifting the store's focus to better reflect who we are and what this industry needs. When we started, we were a comics and gaming store. When we moved to chapter two, we shifted out of gaming, and into used books. Now, we're heading towards something bigger. Something better - not just for everyone, but for anyone.
As of today, we have an online store. You might have noticed that, considering the fact that you're on our website, and it seems... different. What we've done, with the help of the incomparable Kick Point team, is build what will soon become a robust recommendation engine - something you can dig through and find things specifically for you. What this also means, is that we are now able to offer our recommendations to all of Canada through this website.
While we've offered cross-country mail order previously, this will make Variant Edition Comics even more accessible for all.
Now, you may notice that not everything in our store is listed. While we intend to keep adding more and more products to the site (including the ability to not only subscribe to your favourite stories, but to adjust those subscriptions online), we will be curating the selection to better serve those looking to discover new stories. There are many stores that place their full catalogues online. While that is a great service, what we're looking to do is what we've always done - provide a clearer way to parse through the volume, and find the stories that are perfect for you.
Many of you have had some creative guesses as to what we've been up to, some humorous and some serious. We really hope you all enjoy our third chapter - both in terms of what it means to us, and what it could mean for others.
