Founded by two brothers, Jon and Sean, and born from their grandfather’s London comic shop in the 90’s, Scorch Comics are Eastbourne’s premiere comic and pop culture destination store. After opening in the Enterprise Centre 4 years ago, they’ve grown from strength to strength. First expanding into a proper brick-and-mortar store in Grove Road, they’ve now expanded again and are opening in The Beacon. Officially making comics mainstream, Scorch are bucking trends and tradition to revolutionise the comic industry and bring this wonderful medium to a whole new audience. Featuring a state-of-the-art new release comic subscription system, a vast selection of vintage back issues, a plethora of manga and related merchandise and a fresh new look, Scorch are poised to completely change how comic shops are perceived. Keep an eye out in the new year for even more announcements, including partnerships with local businesses, membership signups and discounts, and some of the biggest comic events this side of London. Their opening day is Saturday December 14th, and with big plans (being announced very soon!) it’s sure to be a grand opening not to be missed.
