Comicave opens in Dubai Outlet Mall

UAE-based Al Ahli Group has opened Comicave, the first-of-its-kind superstore for high-end collectibles, apparel, novelty items and the like in the Middle East.

According to Al Ahli Group, which owns the Dubai Outlet Mall in Dubailand, Comicave is the world’s largest store of its kind with 17,000 sqft of retail space for manga enthusiasts, comic book aficionados and film and TV series buffs. The store brings to life a gathering of pop culture icons, superheroes, merchandise, comics and manga.

The brainchild of the CEO of Al Ahli Holding Group, Mohammed Khammas, Comicave offers over 5,000 comic and manga titles.

“Comicave is a destination for the Middle Eastern enthusiast of pop culture, comic books, movies, TV series, games and entertainment. We know there is a massive audience of fans and followers out there and reach out to them and set up a year-round superstore that will stock high-end collectibles, hard to find memorabilia, and everything to do with entertainment,” Khammas says.

The store features an extensive library of tabletop games, ranging from Dungeons & Dragons to Hero Clix lines. Action figures, apparel, and smaller merchandise add to the store’s offerings. Gamers too have a place to gather and play online, cooperatively or against one another, at The Vault within the store.

“Our idea extends beyond retail. We want to be a superstore involved in the retail and distribution of high-end collectibles. But we also want Comicave to house an entire entertainment universe that attracts crowds of varying ages and interests. We want to open up a world that wasn’t available to enthusiasts before in the region. We’re developing a schedule of Cosplay events, gaming tournaments, model kit competitions, screenings, workshops and lectures,” says Yasmin Al Najjar, manager of Comicave store.

Comicave’s collectibles area carries authenticated statues, sculptures, action figures, prop replicas and memorabilia of some of the most recognised and valued intellectual properties from the most famous studios in the world.
