That is if your town is Daventry and you can't distinguish between characters and the actors that play them.

Chris Barrie will be at the grand opening of Kuni's next Thursday! (12 December, from 4pm)

Comic and coffee shop, next door to Boots.

Sorry, assumed more locals would have read the paper or gone outside so didn't previously bother mentioning what and where ;)

Went into the new comic shop today.......................

rubbish.

Big cafe, very very small shop. Not much for the mainstream gamer or collector.

Loads of anime dvd's some collectable figures, stuff I didnt know what it was and a small selection of specialist comics. Dissapointing.

Maybe its just the first wave of stock but looking at the retail space they dont have room for much more.

It's possibly the new wave of "coffee shops with a theme", aiming for a particular sort of customer. I wasn't impressed when I had a look, clearly more interested in selling me coffee or jewelry based on anime than anything else.

I give it a year.

Super niche market, I don't think normal people will get coffee there.

Cool idea though

I wouldn't have said it was rubbish, but I don't think I was expecting a retail emporium with some coffee at the back.

I do think that they're going to struggle. Local comic fans who care will already get their regular pick lists at Northampton or Banbury and will need convincing to move their custom. Anybody else who starts to pick up stuff may get bored and wander off when a new shiny hobby takes their attention. In both cases I don't think the local population is large enough to sustain a niche interest like this.

I think the large markup on coffee and cake will keep them afloat, but when you can get to Costa, Hideout, Evergreen, Rojo, Uppercrust and Air Ambulance coffee shops in less than a five minute walk I have to wonder if the market for coffee is already at saturation if not past it.
