Donate Comic Books

We welcome comic donations!

Wishlist

We recently developed a wishlist to let potential donors know of titles we are actively seeking. You can find our current wish list over here! We also accept comics that are not on this list. Please refer to the guidelines below!

Guidelines

If you would not give it to a friend, please do not give it to CCOL! To browse our current collection, visit our catalogue page. If you have any questions or would like to make your intent to donate known beforehand, please contact us!

If you are unsure of whether we accept certain material, please email us, let us know what you'd like to donate, and we'll let you know if we can take it at this time. Please note that we do not accept items which are unhealthy to handle or dirty, moldy, smelly, burnt, chewed, or damp. Please inspect your books carefully before donating to CCOL to make sure there are no bedbugs or other sneaky little creatures.

We accept comics made by Canadian and non-Canadian creators, in all languages. We also accept comics in zine form as well.

Please fill out a short donation form to send along with books or art; this is important if you are sending original artwork, or if you would like your name on a bookplate for your donated graphic novel(s).

Thank you!
