Time Invaders is a new comic book coming to Oswestry in Shropshire, on the English side of the border to Wales. Opening in Cross Street in the town, taking over the building previously occupied by Baby Bird Café. And it's being set up by married couple Kate Diamond and Glenn Purvis, who previously ran the House Of Jumble store in town and The Comic Vault in Shrewsbury. And are planning a new store with twenty thousand back issues, going back to the turn of the 19th century, alongside retro gaming machines with games going back to the seventies. The comic store will also have a cafe and a community room for board game workshops and birthday parties. The shop is intended to open this coming week, January 25th.
Bleeding Cool tries to mark the passing of comics stores as well as their opening. Existing fanbases are likely to make the former more well known, but please let us know if a comic store is opening or closing in your neighbourhood. Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
