Little Deer Comics has another short term lease!

After 6 months in Maureen's in Stoneybatter Little Deer has found a new home in Inchicore!

122 Emmet Road
Dublin 8
D08 KX68

We'll be here hopefully for the rest of 2022 (longer?) but Little Deer is always on the lookout for a forever home! If you know of any places in or around Stoneybatter where Little Deer could get a cheap long term lease or even better BUY a retail space please email: littledeercomics@gmail.com 

ACCESSIBILITY: The new shop in Inchicore is better than Maureen's, no giant step up, but still enough of a notch to present an obstacle. I'll try to measure it and get a picture of it, one day we'll find a place that's properly ground level.


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 ran a pop-up shop in the former Maureen's in Stoneybatter from September 2021-February 2022. Our current pop-up is in Inchicore. 

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.
