Comic Con Duo To Launch Leamington Spa Comic Shop

Owners of Leamington Spa’s award-winning comic convention are to open a 12 month pop-up comic shop – Spa Town Comics – in The Royal Priors on Saturday September 3 2016.

Spa Town Comics will sell comics and trade paperbacks from mainstream publishers like DC and Marvel, while hoping to introduce Leamington Spa residents to new reads from the smaller and independent publishers.

Dan Mallier of Spa Town Comics and Leam Comic Con, said: “We can’t wait to give local comic fans the opportunity to buy the comics and collectibles they love in their own town. If we get the same heroic support for our pop-up as we do for our convention, we’re positive Spa Town Comics can become a permanent fixture in Leamington.”

Comic fans can sign-up for subscriptions to order their favourite weekly comics, or purchase back issues thanks to the team’s partnership with Banbury retailer, Comic Connections.

While Spa Town Comics aims to become a one stop shop for avid comic fans, the team will also use their experience and contacts gained from running Leam Comic Con to champion creativity within the industry and support the local community through projects and events.

Lisa-Marie Nelson, of Spa Town Comics, said: “We’ve already got an action-packed agenda of events for comic enthusiasts and families. Launch day will be a real celebration of comics, closely followed by Batman Day on 17th where we’ll be encouraging people to come have their photo taken with Leamington’s professional Batman!

If the new comic shop is as popular as the Leamington Comic Cons have been, then there will be some very happy comic book fans!

#CoolArt: Spoke Art presents 'Suggestivism: Resonance' Curated by Nathan Spoor

Spoke Art presents ''Suggestivism: Resonance', a group art exhibition curated by Nathan Spoor, featuring over 40 artists from around the world.

Each piece in the show creates a sense of tension in a dream-like moment constructed with familiar components, characters and objects that make them at once recognizable and also discombobulating. At the core of many of the artists’ work is the importance of imagination and an exploration into unknown landscapes populated by ethereal and implausible characters.

Opening reception is Thursday September 1 from 6 -10pm at Spoke Art, 816 Sutter Street, San Francisco, California 94109, and will be on display until September 24.
