Unlike most modern comic shops, Asylum is focussed on books and comics rather than toys. The store holds over 8000 trades and 100,000 back issues in stock, making it a specialised book shop rather than a toy shop with a fringe of comics. Boasting the largest collection of back issue stock in Scotland, Asylum prides itself in being able to find most books that the customer might being looking for, even if they are not currently in stock.
The merchandise that the store does carry tends to be in the higher end of the market, specialising in statues, and original artwork from both industry professionals and local artists.
