documentary / Poland / 2021 / 1h 18min
“Comic Book Shop” is a humorous chronicle of the comic book culture in Poland shown through the prism of an iconic store that brings together the whole world of graphic novel enthusiasts. Warsaw’s Centrum Komiksu is the oldest comic book shop in Poland. Kuba and his father run the store with such passion and dedication that the shop has long been recognized as a cult site.
In three chapters we see different parts of it. From the stories about the shop owners and their loyal customers, through the history of publishing difficulties and problems faced by the creators themselves.
