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.
