If you’re looking to satisfy your inner bookworm while in Cape Town, there are several stores that will have you covered. Though most large shopping centres have some form of bookshop franchise, there are a few truly iconic destinations for readers dotted throughout the city.
For the wannabe-heroes in the crowd, this atmospheric comic shop sells every popular comic available, from Adventure Time and Batman to Justice League, Star Wars and more. If that isn’t enough, there are plenty of graphic novels and Manga comics to read. The unique thing about this comic shop is its participation in Free Comic Book Day. On this day, local comic book stores seek to promote comic books as forms of relevant entertainment, art, and literature by giving away specially published comic books for free. In fact, the day has gained such popularity in this location that it has become a mini Comic Con, with cosplayers turning up from all over town to attend.
