In the same way that guiding a tourist round your city changes your view of it, trying to find a comic shop for a comic from the Balkans called Kuš! #9 'female secrets' (go look at it; http://www.komikss.lv/) made me remember what I found so dispiriting about trying to find a niche for my own work.
I recommended The Sticky Institute wholeheartedly, even though they don't specialize in comics. Also Minotaur slightly less eagerly after a quick look at their website; quite a lot to interest an arrested adolescent in the way of Super Heroes, games, figurines, fantasy, but grown up ladies? So other comic shops? or places like Readings or Hill of Content? Neither, both? I gave up.
