Forbidden Planet Megastore opens in Glasgow

A year ago ComicScene suggested comic shops need to adapt to survive. One such imitative was to create an ‘event’ store. Forbidden Planet have done just that in Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street, with a three Floor megastore.

Frank Quitely Superman welcomes you in to the store, which opened this week. Wall to wall merchandise is throughout the store but it includes comics, graphic novels and the opportunity to include back and collectable comics, desperately missing from their current Buchanan Street store.

Forbidden Planet Glasgow opened 32 years ago in Buchanan Street. That shop will close in January. The new store is three times as big with plenty of space to move around in, something the current shop lacks.

The shop even stocks ComicScene and we wish them the very best of luck in their new home!
