Brewster Comics now open in Castle Rock

New venture encourages reading for all

Posted

After using the love of comics to help his son learn to read, Castle Rock resident Bruce Singh decided to open a small shop downtown to sell a variety of popular favorites and collectibles.

Singh, originally from New York, moved to Castle Rock two years ago. While his professional career is in fiber optics, Singh said he is opening the Brewster Comics store as a side operation.

“Our whole goal in doing this is to encourage reading through these recognizable characters we all love in comics,” Singh said. “For us, it is really a family thing. The main reason we love comics is because they were a big help in my son learning to read.”

Singh’s son Jakob was diagnosed with ADHD and struggled in learning to read for years. Singh said it was a “huge help” when the family discovered the Dog Man comic series.

Singh said Jakob is now 11 and will be helping him with the Brewster Comics store in Castle Rock.

Personally, Singh said, he has loved reading comic books since he was a child, always being a collector.

Brewster Comics has a supply of more than 1,500 comics, artwork, and merchandise, including a variety from DC and Marvel.

Brewster’s Comics officially opened on Sept. 1 and will be open daily between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Singh opened Brewster Comics in a small space at 200 Perry St. The side venture is possible thanks to the opportunity offered by the Emporium in Castle Rock, Singh said.

When he was researching where to put a small store, Singh said he quickly learned that rent for regular-size store spaces is very expensive. That led him to learn more about the Emporium.

Located in downtown Castle Rock, the Emporium supports about 60 small businesses, serving as a location for local entrepreneurs to sell products ranging from children’s clothing and jewelry to the comics.
