I've done a lot of hunting around for good comic shops in my area and have found close to nothing. Crunks knows what I'm talking about. A lot of people just order their shit but I'm all about the scenery, the one-on-one personal transactions and the ability to browse through actual merchandise. We've got a local place called Vista that's open periodically... But I can't rely on a man who only opens his store whenever he "feels like it". I found a place called Amazing Stories in Vancouver, WA not too long ago. Kicked ass, all sorts of neat back issues and whatnot. But the guy behind the counter had those thick glasses, tucked in flannel shirt and suspenders... and he tried to rope me into a chat about Star Trek when I was buying Venom comics. . . and their selection was kind of fail. Luckily I found Amazing Stories' sister store in Astoria, OR on my way to pick up a friend from LongBeach. The guy who works there is awesome and the store itself... well, I'll let the pictures do the rest of my ranting: And yes, there's even a case full of mini-statues and busts to catch Void's attention. I'm making this place a monthly trip from now on. I get that same childish rush I use to get when I'd wander into Toys R' Us when I was 8.
