10 limited edition shirts will be given away at random for purchasing customers throughout the day, and there will be offers on many items, including graphic novels.

  1. Excellent news to hear of a new comic shop opening, stunned that the Perth city area (ok its a town but dont tell them that lol) and surrounding area doesn’t have a comic shop as its a fair population. Not from there but may pop into Perth (stunning place)and check it out – good to see it has back issues also.
