Graphic novels, comic books, memorabilia and board games: nowhere does it better in the city of Leeds than Travelling Man. Part of the Northern chain, which also has outlets in Manchester, York and Newcastle, Travelling Man stocks a huge array and collection of printed material, from adventure time and marvel through to more arty publishers like Jim Woodring. They are also big on showcasing local talent, and hire staff that love what they sell – and, even better, are great at passing on that passion to their customers.
If you’re looking for somewhere to play board games (guys?... guys?) but just can’t find them at your University, Travelling Man regularly host events dedicated to getting together and playing. As well as this, they’re the premier spot for comic book artist signings, with last year’s visitors including Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley and Rocket Raccoon reviver Scotty Young.
