Partner Howard Clare

Howard Clare explained the idea:

“We are both Gatwick stalwarts and we decided it would be nice to create a space for people like ourselves to sit and chat, read a comic, have a coffee and chat about the new avengers film.  I never had that as a child and I want to deliver that to Crawley.”

The themed coffee shop

Howard explained that after speaking to the town centre manager they choice their location as they wanted to help rejuvenate the end of the High St in an attempt to diversify the outlets.

So what can you expect to find?

Howard said:

“Our core product is comic books but we have tried to deliver an eclectic mix of merchandise as well, we have the themed coffee bar with hot and cold drinks and soon we will be launching our retro gaming area, with Nintendo, Sega and Atari games to play.

The ethos behind is a community feel, we just want people to be able to come in chat, feel safe and have a good time.”

With shelfs of comics and merchandise ranging from Harry Potter to Star Trek this is a haven for anyone who is fan of Superheros and comics.
