About Us

Since moving to our new store location, Area 52 is the largest independent seller of all things pop culture in Tasmania.  We offer everything from comics, manga, books, and pop culture merchandise to trading cards, table top and board games. We even do e-sports and twitch streaming!

We’re very active in our local community through sponsorship of events and conventions, and partnerships with various societies.  We have a regular schedule of events at our store focusing on building and supporting diverse communities and fan bases.

Our aim is to create a comfortable fun space where you can come in, play a few games, browse our goods, and have a friendly chat with our knowledgeable staff.

And if we don’t have what you’re looking for, we can order it
