Gateway City Comics was born in a brick and mortar shop in Lisbon, Portugal, in early 2017. Since then, we have reached an increasingly bigger community, both within the street shop and the website. These spaces welcome the collectors and the experts as well as children and the new- comers. More than a retail project, Gateway City Comics wants to be a place of meeting and sharing for fans of the comic-book worlds and other arts, the cult of which is often related. The future will bring more specialized events and new physical stores where curiosity is always invited.
