Book World, RIP

Just now Jennie (sp), the pleasant young woman I buy comics from, called to say that the store, Book World, has closed its doors. I have followed Book World through several moves and renovations, and the store provided a variety of used books in addition to carrying weekly comics. There were apparently financial problems for the owner, and both Midway and Kent stores have been closed.


So I am comic-bookless at the moment, and looking for a new dealer for my favorite obsession. So if any local Seattlites know of a good local store in south (Renton/Kent) or East Side (aw, come on, it's geek central out here), drop me a note courtesy of this journal.

More later.
