How it Started
Hyperspace Comics & Games is owned and operated by Jonathan & Stephanie Mallett. After many years of searching for the right location, Hyperspace opened May 3rd, 2017 at #110, 319 McLeod Avenue in Spruce Grove. Hyperspace quickly out grew that space and in April of 2019 the moved to #1, 229 First Ave, Spruce Grove.
Prior to having the store they attended small comic and collectible shows selling back issues and key comics.
"Hyperspace Comics had been a dream of ours for a long time. Our hope was that it would fill a huge gap for those people who love comics, games and collectibles, but were having to drive a long long way just to get them. We wanted Hyperspace to help introduce what we love to a whole new generation of people in the area who have never visited a comics and games shop before. So here we are now, seeing so many excited faces who are enjoying being in a local store that loves what they love, and for many others that are now experiencing this type of shop for the 1st time!"
Hyperspace Comics to us was always going to be more than a retail store, it was a place for people to come together, to meet new people with similar interests, make new friends and to have a fun and safe place to do so. I'm happy to say that we succeeded in that, we have an amazing community here and we hope that you will come and be a part of it.
2020 and Beyond
2020 was not the easiest, as most of us know. There were lots of challenges and we had to adapt quickly. We have grown a lot over the past year and a half, we have added to our social media presence with a twitter account (@HyperspaceComic), we added a shopify store, our subscriptions management program for comics has moved online and Jon runs an online comic auction at least once a week on facebook. We have also re-arranged the store several times enabling us to expand our board game and D&D selection. With things opening up a litte we are so happy to have our tables open again for events, our D&D groups and Friday Night Magic are back every week, our paint classes will starting running soon and we have added a few new events like art classes and intro to Magic the Gathering.
All of this wouldn't be possible without community support, so from the bottom our hearts thank you so much!
Thank you for shopping local!
