Walking Down Rue Dante, The Geekiest Street in Paris (Video)

So I am having a little potter in Paris – I’ve been here with my family for the launch of the name of the new Asterix volume – well, it will be the best-selling comic of the year, guaranteed – and I’ve been spending a few days in Paris as a result.

Now, Paris has lots of comic book shops. Lots and lots. Selling comics, graphic novels, BD, BD albums, manga, everything you can throw at the medium. But one street seems to have more than others… about ten, or at least ten such-themed establishments.

Welcome to Rue Dante. This video starts off in a couple of shops close by and then hits the motherlode…

We even found some original artwork by Gary Frank from Doomsday Clock. Who knew?

Apologies for the moments of camera obscura through this video but you probably get the gist.
