Lambic won't let you leave with nothing. You'll always leave the shop with something you've always really wanted to have, but just not realized until owner Klaas pointed you on it. Make sure you visit this special comic shop.


In the heart of Amsterdam at the Kerkstraat you can find this old comic shop. And old it is! Lambic is the oldest antiquarian comic shop in Europe and exists since 1968. Since that time the store has become a worldwide center for comic strip lovers. The shop name is coming from comic hero 'Lambic' famous from the comic strip Suske & Wiske.

This king of comic stores, offers, besides classical and rare titles (both in Dutch and English), the most recent and modern strips. If there is a title not available, there is the possibility to order.

Questions? Ask advice to Klaas or one of the other employees. They will have an answer to all of your comic related questions. As one client said:


''Hey you: my brother is looking for something about creative ways  for rabbits to commit suicides, which Klaas responds with' Andy Riley! "and he rushes to the shelf of comic books about creative ways to commit suicide for rabbits. Or you'll say 'do you have anything like Persepolis, but then another dictatorship anywhere in the world? "Klaas then turns the graphic novel "Pyongyang" by Guy Delisle. For antiquarian comic Lambic has that sort of thing. Like everything else you can think of, and more.''

Even if you're not going to buy a comic book, when you even really not like comics, still Lambic is worth a visit. Klaas and his staff are going to surprise you. Join the world of comics and pre-visit the shop trough the website.
