About Taiwan Comic Base

“Taiwan Comic Base” is situated within Taipei City’s Huaying Street Business District which used to be the most developed area of Taipei Rear station. For many travelers that came to Taipei for work or school, it was their first sight of Taipei City.

Here they gathered with their dreams to meet with each other, settle down, and put down their roots. Comic Base is not just here to carry on the rich culture and history of Taipei Rear Station. Its most important mission is to serve as an incubator for future Taiwanese comics.

The old duplex townhouse housing the Base has been renovated with its internal spaces optimized to create a sense of multiple levels within the existing constraints. The design was inspired by the use of frames and time axes in animation and comics. Window frames positioned at different heights are like a mosaic of scenes from the storyboard. The design inspires the imaginations of visitors and creates new associations.

Base Bookstore

The Base Bookstore focuses on original Taiwanese comics. It has the most extensive and complete collection of original Taiwanese text and graphics. People of all ages as well as parents with kids in tow can all find something they like here!
