Dave's Comics

I set out yesterday with one aim : to buy the new Hate Annual. After weaving in and out of the hipsters in the North Laines, I finally discovered that Dave's Comics in Brighton has had a groovy new makeover, and is now on two floors! This made the experience of buying a new Peter Bagge comic even more pleasurable.

The best comic shop in the UK? Quite possibly.
