Orbital Comics, now going by the name Orbital Space, has had quite the year. Leaving Diamond Comic Distributors, seeing ructions amongst staff over a relaunch, introducing a pop-up shop courtesy of online store Comic Toolbox to address the weekly Wednesday Warriors, staying in shutdown longer than other stores, coming out of it with a world-class barista, galleries of counter-culture comics original artwork, a David Bowie comic art print store, and now gaining a record shop section as well, from the hippest vinyl slingers in town.
