Minotaur bills itself as "The Pop Culture Megastore" - this description is fits well. The store located between Collins and Bourke on Elizabeth St is a fantastic part of Melbourne. Further, that its popularity - somewhat 'against trend' in the internet era of downloading and online shopping - appears to have only grown in status, is testament to the affection held for the store in the minds of so many.

With such a sheer range on offer, it is difficult to state conclusively what exactly would draw any one person into the store. What can be said however is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Big Bang Theory, DC, Marvel, and an abundance of other memorabilia - including anime - was all spotted across the store during the writers visit.

With this it can be said, even the most casual shopper could easily spend an hour or more taking in the all the comics, and merchandise of tv, movies and more.
