BACK IN STONEYBATTER
Little Deer Comics has returned to Stoneybatter!
After 8 months in Inchicore, Little Deer Comics is right back where we started in the former Maureen's in Stoneybatter!
57 Manor Place
Beside Slice cafe.
We'll be here hopefully for a few years! We would love to buy a retail space though, so if anyone has any leads on retail for sale in Stoneybatter please get in touch! email@example.com
ACCESSIBILITY: Unfortunately our shop has a pretty substantial step in and a narrow footpath that doesn't allow for a simple cheap ramp like we had in Inchicore, but we'll keep investigating options and hopefully find a solution.
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.
From February to November 2022, we enjoyed a pop-up in Emmet Hall in Inchicore before returning to the former Maureen's in Stoneybatter where we'll be for the foreseeable future!
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
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.
