About this project

A Comic Spot is the brain child of 18 year old Antonio Monge, who since he was 10 years old, has lived, breathed, created and read comics. While you can find him religiously at his local comic shop  every Wednesday, one day he began to wonder if there could be more to what the comic shop experience could offer.

And so A Comic Spot was born….a comic book truck that transforms into an instant store and outdoor meeting space with comics and fold-able chairs and tables, allowing people to connect and share in an engaging dialogue. A Comic Spot is more than a comic book truck, but a flexible venue that creates pop ups and hosts meet up events around what our customers and community want, bringing fun experiences like trivia, game nights, and karaoke.  We will also host learning opportunities like designing and creating cosplay costumes.  Between our online forum and our social media sites and getting out in the LA community, we can keep our pulse on what fans want and let that guide what we provide. You can find us at Food Truck Events, Street Festivals and small, local Cons.

The Store

What we need to get started:

  • Down payment for our cargo van
  • Wrap for the van
  • Foldable "flash" furniture
  • Start Up Stuff (licensing fees,first inventory,business software, etc.)

Risks and challenges

This mom and son (ad)venture has been a Start Up 101 lesson. We will be at Wondercon in Anaheim, surveying comic book fans to test our hypothesis and pivot where it is appropriate. This model has its roots in the community and is about fans. We are using the food truck and mobile retail model to base our shop on. We think our mobility will give more opportunities then a permanent location, for people to connect over comics. It gives us a chance to unite our metropolis in a unique way. Our website and social media will continue to forge those connections and let you know what's up and where we will be.
