Dropbear Comics

Art + Design Shopping Things to Do Vintage

Comic fans rejoice! Thanks to passionate local Jay Johnson, Wollongong CBD now have our very own dedicated comic store.

Jay is no stranger to the scene. What started out as a childhood hobby has evolved as he quickly discovered that the best way to get the comics he wanted was by buying bulk lots, and trading them off. With regular appearances trading at Collector Con and Comic Gong, Jay made the leap to a pop-up store in 2020, and has now opened up his doors permanently on Crown Street (right opposite Spotlight).

What's on offer:

Dropbear is more than just a store - it's a community hub where you'll find support from Jay to find that collector's edition you've always searched for, or have the chance to meet up with like-minded fans.

  • Unearth key issues, original art and one-of-a-kind graded books.
  • Browse a massive back catalogue of books from $1.
  • Rediscover your childhood skills on the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game.
  • Every second Saturday, meet and greet comic artists in store, like Marcelo Baez, and Camillo Di Pietrantonio.
  • There's vintage collectables and gaming consoles instore too.
