Who We Are

The Dragon is a specialty comics and games store, locally owned and operated by University of Guelph alumna Jenn Haines. The Dragon opened in 1998 to provide a niche shopping experience for the whole family to enjoy! In November 2017, The Dragon opened a second location in the South end of Guelph.

The Dragon has received numerous awards, including the extremely prestigious Will Eisner Spirit of Retailing Award, which recognizes the best comic stores in the world.

The Dragon Prize is awarded to the best comic for kids by Canadian creators annually in partnership with the Joe Shuster Awards.

We pride ourselves on carrying a diverse selection of products for people of all ages and tastes.
We are a strongly women- and kid-friendly store.
We encourage fair play and appropriate behaviour at all in-store events.
