Bangladesh Is Big On Comics

Dhaka Comicon from Al Jazeera

Bangladesh is definitely not the first place that comes to mind when you think of comic book culture. Especially when you consider that comics, which aren't exactly cheap for Americans, are very expensive in Bangladesh. According to Al Jazeera, per capita income in Bangladesh is around $1000 a year! But that hasn't stopped a budding western-comic-book fan base from growing. And some Bangladeshi comic companies are popping up too.

The capital city, Dhaka, was host to the 2013 Dhaka Comicon which saw 16000 attendees. And 'Jamil's Comics and Collectables', one of Dhaka's first and only dedicated comic book shops, sold out all 10 copies of New 52 Batman by Scott Snyder much to the owner Jamil's delight. I guess every culture understands the hero archetype. I just didn't expect 'mutant' to translate so well.
