In my town never had a comic bookstore. Hope things will change to better for all there and here.

what happen with your comic store? is it because of the economic crisis?

Yowz.

Seriously, really fantastic work here. I usually cruise right over the blogs-o-note, but I'm glad I clicked.

My own blog-reading generally has to do with all the superhero goings on in the world, but your stuff is a really nice break from reality

Even though I'm not into comic books ( blasphemy, I know) it really pisses me off that all the artistic shops - little galleries, comic book stores, etc. - are shutting down.

ARGH!

Congrats on the nod, man.

NNNNEEEERRRD!!!!

OK - I know we're not on terms to be casually throwing out "slams" of endearment - but comics are good, comics are great - I considered myself a collector when I was young.

Congrats on being blog of note.
