Dublin Forbidden Planet

In March I visited the Forbidden Planet in Dublin. They sell comics, manga, action figures, and random fun stuff. There was a much different gender ratio than in American comic stores; maybe 30% female. All males worked there, including one Irish dude with blue tinted dreads who talked comics with me. I asked about Irish writers, and I bought Havoc (Irish Anthology), Sancho, and a hauntingly illustrated graphic novel written in
gaelic AnTeachtaire . Big sellers in Dublin were the same DC, Marvel, Tokyopop titles like here.
Here I am outside the store, on Crampton Quay by the River Liffey.
