Comic book stores in Singapore

Comic books easily invoke a strong feeling of nostalgia for many of us. Simply flipping through the yellowed pages of my Archie comics collection takes me back to being an excited 9-year-old who brought them everywhere. Ultimately, the joy of finally holding a long-awaited comic in your hands or building up your collection piece by piece isn’t replaceable by a few swipes on your phone. 

Here are 7 comic book stores in Singapore that’ll bring a blast from the past, with both vintage and newly-released titles.
