Wanderer Owl was a "doujinshi and comic goods" vendor based in Thailand. They shipped internationally and their website was available in both Thai and English.

The site primarily sold Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Fullmetal Alchemist doujinshi, but also sold products from a number of other fandoms.

The site officially closed in early 2017.[1]
