Dublin the Fun


It's my first time in Dublin, and of course I couldn't resist visiting a comics shop here. Thanks to Stephen Robson from Fanfare UK and reader Tara for pointing me in the right direction of some great places. Today, I stopped by Forbidden Planet on Compton Quay and picked up some things. Nice store! And nice to see that it was so crowded on a lazy Friday afternoon. It always makes me happy to see a comics shop doing brisk business.

While I'm here, I'm also hoping to get to Sub City and The 3rd Place, two more stores recommended to me by Stephen. I hope to get to those tomorrow. If I do, I'll post some pictures of them too. Oh, and before I forget, I brought along Huntress: Year One by Ivory Madison, Cliff Richards, Art Thibert, and Norm Rapmund. It's been good reading material for the trip. Pick it up if you have a chance.
