    Default Recommendation for comic book shops in Prague or Vieena

    Hi guys!
    it's been a while since the last time I was here, thanks for the previous help about London comic book shops.

    I need recommendations for comic book shops in Prague and Vienna this time.
    I found out about those shops in google but I trust more people's recommendations then the google results:
    I'm looking for Comics in English and I think most of the shops sells only in Czech or German that's why I'm asking in advance, maybe I'm wrong.
    Anyway, I'm lost between all of those sites, I'm specifically want to but the Mystique comic or the Hedge Knight vol1 or 3, or Runaways vol3 and abov, or Y the last man from vol1

    Prague:

    http://www.krakatit.cz/

    so any help will be welcomed,

    ty a lot in advance,

    Dude, I can't help you with anything. I've never even been anywhere near Europe.

    Hi,

    Never been to Prague and it‘s been twenty years since I‘ve last been to Vienna, so I really don‘t remember any of the shops I visited back then. However, from looking at the links you provided (and others), the following Viennese shops carry English-language comics:

    http://www.comic-galerie.at/us_comics/trades_01.htm
    http://www.collectorscorner.at/shop/
    http://www.bilderboxvienna.com/index.php/comic/englisch
    http://comictreff.at/Home.html
    http://www.comicshutterer.at (They have three stores in Vienna)

    Hopefully this‘ll help somewhat.

    Just had a look at the Czech sites. It seems that „Komiksy v angličtině“ means „English-language comics“, so the following should have those:

    Yo I'm from Vienna! I haven't been to every shop you listed, but I'll tell you what I know. First of all be warned: English comics are pretty expensive here. Every shop has a conversion rate of $1 = €1,X (ranging from €1,1 to €1,5) meaning you will pay extra and depending on the shop you will pay a LOT extra.

    Comictreff ($1 = €1,3)
    Probably the biggest selection of English books in Vienna. You'll definitely find the Y volumes here. Also has a lot of current and back issues if you care about that.

    Comic Galerie
    Not entirely sure about their pricing as it seemed pretty inconsistent the last time I've been there. They have a few longboxes of English trades but kind of crammed into a corner. Might be worth a look, but not the best shop for browsing.

    Bilderbox
    A very nice shop with a fairly small selection of books. There's comic books in the front and graffiti stuff in the back. Pricing varies as far as I know and they tend to carry more popular books.

    Comics Hutterer
    Don't go there unless you want to be treated like an idiot. I've only been to one of their shops but the staff there was shitty, they carry 99% German books and I felt very unwelcome just looking through their stuff.

    Comics Matula
    Kind of a weird one but there are some deals to be found. They mostly carry used books and older Manga, but there are a few shelves with used English comic books.

    Runch! Comics ($1 = €1,5)
    Ridiculously overpriced, weird staff, mostly focus on merchandise but quite a lot of English books in the back of the store. It's crammed and crazy expensive but thanks to that they actually still have some OOP books that no one ever buys because who in their right mind pays over 50% more than cover.

    Pictopia Comics ($1= €1,1)
    This is mostly an online shop but their "storage unit" is open a few times a week, just check their homepage for opening hours. The owner is super nice and helpful, they carry a bunch of newer English books and their pricing is pretty good considering the alternatives. Haven't been there in a while but I'd say it's worth a visit.
