Comic readers and collectors in Singapore have had one less comic store to browse in for the last few weeks as Absolute Comics was closed for almost two months. Good news is, Absolute Comics has finally revealed the official opening date of their new store, which will no longer be next to Kinokuniya in Bugis Junction, but be at a new location in Plaza Singapura. To celebrate the opening, Absolute Comics will be holding a grand opening celebration this Sunday (Sept 8) at noon, where prizes will be up for grabs. Want to know more? Read on!
