Named after the home-planet of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Little Prince, comic book shop Asteroid B612 indeed serves as a sort of a dreamy retreat. It even seems as a kind of of a hiding place, as it is situated in basement of an old building with a beautiful entryway, right next to a sex shop. However, it is very easy to find because it’s placed within a few minutes from Ban Jelačić Square or park Zrinjevac, depending on the way you come from.
The shop is considerably large and pretty much fully equipped. It offers various comics from different authors and periods of time. Although, it must be noted that it provides publications mainly printed in the (Serbo-)Croatian language. In spite of that, the shop holds a section of foreign-language issues, mostly in English, so if you are into comics, it could be worth a visit.
The staff is friendly and helpful when it comes to finding specific comic albums. Nevertheless, if you don’t find what you are looking for, it is good to know that there is also another comic book shop nearby, although significantly smaller than Asteroid B612. You can find it in Preradovićeva 34 under the name of Stripovi na kvadrat.
