Stoneybatter Festival Schedule: Sunday June 18th!

2023 is the first year Little Deer Comics will be open in Stoneybatter during the Stoneybatter Festival! 

The festival is closing down Manor Place for events so join us out front for a day of drawing and music!

About us: Little Deer Comics is an independent comic book shop in Stoneybatter, started with the goal of expanding the self published and small press comic book presence in Dublin and hopefully grow the audience as well! We got our start as a market table in Pender's Market in 2019 and now have a retail space in the former Maureen's at 57 Manor Place beside Slice Cafe.
