Little Deer Comics has a home! A temporary one anyway!

Find us beside Slice Cafe in Stoneybatter in the former Maureen's Grocery until 2022!

57 Manor Place
Dublin 7
D07 KC80

*There's two "57 Manor Place"s in Stoneybatter (ack) so if you're standing beside Ramen Kitchen and Love Supreme (Lovely Sandwiches) wondering where we are, we're actually a block away! If Google Maps is getting it wrong, try searching for Slice Cafe or One Manor Place Dental Practice and we're right there!

We've got about 9 months to make a splash and see if Little Deer can afford Stoneybatter rents! After our short term lease is up we'll need to find a new home in Stoneybatter so please contact us with any leads: littledeercomics@gmail.com 

ACCESSIBILITY: The Maureen's space has a fairly big step up into the shop. When we move to a new location in 2022 we hope to find a wheelchair accessible space.


Little Deer Comics started as a small press comics market table. Our first event was in 2019 at Pender's Market in Stoneybatter and from there we tabled at The Dublin Comic Arts Festival and other local Dublin markets with the goal of expanding the self published and small press comic book presence in Dublin and hopefully grow the audience as well. 

Since the pandemic started, Little Deer has been an online shop, casually in 2020 and more formally with a SumUp webshop in early 2021 and this current Shopify shop in late 2021.

We're currently running a pop-up shop in the former Maureen's in the Stoneybatter neighbourhood of Dublin. Our lease runs out in 2022 but by then we should know if Little Deer can continue in brick and mortar or not.

Little Deer is run by Matthew Melis, founder and organizer of The Dublin Comic Arts Festival.

Matt is a member of the Stray Lines comic collective.


Small press comics can be a nebulous term in the comic book world. They can be as small as a photocopied zine and as big as Raina Telgemeier's Smile. I generally use the term to mean creator-owned, independent comics. They can be handmade, self-published or released by small press publishers.
