Another one bites the dust...

One of my favorite comic stores is called, Wonderworld books, in Burien, WA. It's one of those old school stores where the comic boxes placed everywhere down the isle and you can buy anything from toys to role-playing games. In the back, there's a little area where I've seen kids play card games or sometimes, role-playing games. From what I heard from my friend that grew up in Burien, this store have been there for a for a looooong time.

Well, I found out that this weekend... the store is going to close. Looks like they're not moving to a new location but just keep doing their business through their site. It's just sad that little Timmy had one less place to go to pick up his issue of Spiderman. Well, Timmy might just give up collecting comics and stick with playing video games or watching TV. This is why the comic industry is hurting. No stores for people to go and less people buying comics and less stores could stay in business.... a destructive cycle that's killing the comic industry. What's the answer... I'm not sure. What do you think?

I really liked that place. I used to work in Burien and that shop was nothing but a wall to wall comic funhouse.
Boxes and boxes of good stuff.
maybe you, me Trav, Bart and Aug need to go out there and pay our final respects.
