Does anyone remember a comic shop in Stirchley in the 1970s called Outer Limits?

If so can you share any information you have about it or remember?

    The owner’s name was Pete Lennon and it was me who came up with the name of the shop.
    Best wishes!

  • Victor:

    Hi Tom – can you recall where about in Stirchley the shop was? When it opened and shut down?

  • Terry:

    Was the shop in Elmtree Rd, on the right going up Pershore Rd) and was it Marvel comics they sold?

  • Victor:

    Hi Terry,
    Yes it was Marvel amongst others that they sold – I’m not 100% sure which road it was on though, thats what I’m trying to find out.

  • Chris Holmes:

    I remember Pete Lennon well and Outer Limits began life as a stall in a tiny indoor market. Nigel Whittaker, a friend at the time, worked behind the counter for Pete on the weekends. Mr. Lennon is still active and can be found at comic book shows and on Facebook.

    I know it’s a while since I posted on here about this subject – but I can confirm I spoke to Pete Lennon (who I know well and didn’t realise it was the same person) and the shop was open for about 12 months only on a weekend and was called Outer Limits. There, I can put the story to bed now lol!
