Hello, everyone. This is the time of year we thank you
for your support. That goes double for
those of you who come in a lot. And we remind the rest of you that we're still
here and we want and need you to come in.
If you've been in the store this year, I may have been less
attentive than usual, for which I apologize. I've been spending a lot of
time taking my wife, Jay, to 7 months of pretty hard-core cancer
treatments. These seem to have been
successful, thank you, and she is now slowly recovering from the side effects. Naturally
I've been thinking about my own mortality, and about what to do with this store
I've been working on for 40 years....
We’re here. Please do come by for a little shopping,
here, and at our ESCAPIST COMICS next door.
NO AUTHOR EVENTS ARE CURRENTLY SCHEDULED.
