The Society of Comics Lovers Stripoholik was established in 2006. The goals of the society are to inform the public about comic books, to popularize comic books among the general public and to enable its members easy access to comic albums. The society runs its internet forum and auctions, organizes readings, comics bazaars and festivals, as well as meetings between authors and fans. The society used to have its own reading room and shop called Stripoholik, but it had to be closed down in 2008 due to lack of time and funds. That reading room was the venue for the Πfirst comics bazaar in Ljubljana, but since its closure the bazaars take place at the primary school Ledina in Ljubljana, four times a year. The society also publishes its own fanzine. Stripoholik has around 30 members.
