It’s great to have some good news when we know Local Comic Shops have been struggling after enforced COVID pandemic closures and rising costs – so we’re delighted to report the opening of Red Robot in Barnsley this weekend.
Situated in The Victorian Arcade, Red Robot is opening this Saturday, Saturday 23rd July 2022, a collaboration from Spiral City bar, which is co-owned by comic artist Dean Ormston, and Existential Dread Comics, Barnsley’s secondhand market comic stand.
The new shop will be full of amazing artwork, prints, comics, graphic novels, posters etc. – including, from pictures posted on social media by the owners, British comic annuals.
Get yourselves down for a nosey!
