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 Œ first 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.
