Celebrating our 10th anniversary!

Posted by Ben Fardon on

Free Comic Book Day 2018 is this Saturday! As well as being the 17th Free Comic Book Day, it's also marks ten years since Ben officially opened Proud Lion!

 

 

Despite first opening the doors at the old Albion Street shop on Saturday 22nd March 2008, those first few weeks were a shakedown cruise. It wasn't until Free Comic Book Day 2008 that the shop was officially opened by our 2008 special guest, writer Paul Cornell!

To celebrate our tenth anniversary we'll be holding...
