Guest appearances from superheroes as well as competitions and a raffle to get involved in. With a wide range of comics with a variety of age and theme, there will be something for all ages at Bazinga Comics. The shop will be open from 9am and owner Muz Fraser expects a busy day as the town centre will be busy with the councils Firework Spooktacular.
Muz said “The nearest proper comic store is in Glasgow ,so why have the people of Paisley travel when they can spend money and time in their own town and reinvigorate it” He is a massive comic book fan and got into comics back in 1997. He has put a lot of work into the shop and is extremely thankful for all the support his family and friends have given him .
Lorna manager of neighbouring Helen’s Haberdashery said “Paisley now seems to moving in the right direction with new bars and restaurants opening in Shuttle Street, and new shops opening up in shops that have been empty for far too long, and now we have a brilliant Graphic novel store opening – exciting times”
