We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Abiku graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Abiku movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Abiku statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Abiku. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
