    Unlikely small business idea - particularly for NSW, Australia peeps

    I live in a regional centre in NSW (Dubbo). It is a bit of a hub for the state.

    I have always had an interest in comic books (Marvel, DC, Vertigo, etc).

    This idea wouldn't bank me millions, it would be just a small business for a bit of extra money.

    Open up a small shop selling comic books and related things in a small shop.

    I'd service the Central West (including Orange, and Bathurst, for example), by initially, going to these towns once a month for deliveries.

    I'd have an online presence, but it might be hard to ship to other areas other than the Central West as delivery costs are high.

    I wouldn't have a lot of weekly expenses (I can rent a shop for around $200 odd a week) plus weekly/monthly inventory.

    I would also bank on the fact that comic book fans wouldn't just get one title, but I'd say the average fan would probably collect around 10 titles a month or so.

    It would be a passion project of mine, more than anything, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't like it to make a bit of money either.

    Any thoughts/opinions?

    Sounds like the movie "Unbreakable" by M Night Shymalyan. You would be Mr Glass, portrayed by Samuel L Jackson.

    It really sounds like a full time small business, not a side hustle.

    You're wanting to open up a store. You're going to need someone to operate it from like 10AM to 9PM Monday-Saturday man.

    Nah, there is a shop here that sells RP games, Pokemon cards, etc and they open at 12pm till whatever. A teacher here used to own a similar shop to this and she would open after work, at around 4-5pm

    I am a teacher, so the plan would be to open after work and stay there until 8-9pm on weekdays and then half a day on weekends.
