I spent last Saturday being blown away by the amazing comic shops of Paris...
Starting with this place (which I think was called Vendor ICI), in the St Michel area of Paris, and whose large first floor was packed with comic albums.
Just one minute down the road is the large Gibert Jeune bookshop, of which half of the ground floor is given to comics (see below)!
And a just little further on is the great Aaapoum Bapoum... and there are many, many more shops like these in Paris.
And get this ... in the Jourdain area where we were staying, there was a pub that had a comics library and comic art on the wall. People sat with a drink and read comics. Magic!
