Strip.art.nica Buch

Strip.art.nica Buch is the only shop in Slovenia which spe­cial­izes in comic books. Visitors can buy mostly domes­tic, Slovenian comics, and imported comics from Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia, but the shop can also order comics from all over the world for them. Strip.art.nica is more than just a shop though: it also serves as a vital meet­ing point for car­toon­ists and an impor­tant exhi­bi­tion venue; in 2012 it part­nered up with the city of Maribor, the European Capital of Culture 2012, to orga­nize an exhi­bi­tion of European comics. The owner of Strip.art.nica, Alexander Buh, also runs a pub­lish­ing busi­ness: in 2013 he plans to pub­lish five new comic albums and orga­nize at least ten var­i­ous comics events.
