Henk Comics, Amsterdam

By November 15, 2015 Comic Book Stores, Comics

When I was firming up plans for an upcoming business trip to Amsterdam, I did the two things that I always do when preparing for a trip. The first was to research if any of my favorite bands were on tour there, and I was THRILLED to see that Chvrches would fit nicely into my evening itinerary (ignoring the fact that I’ve already seen them twice in concert this year).

That’s really all the time you need to check out Current Comics. It’s small and lean, and probably the right fit if you already know exactly what you want.

Much like the Tardis, and most comic shops, it’s much bigger on the inside. The store’s layout is fairly straightforward, but devious by design. The new comics are along side walls, with the more popular (superhero) titles near the back. To get to them you must survive a gauntlet of irresistible collectibles ranging from Doctor Who trinkets to action figures of every variety.
