  1. I used to love the comic selection at Waldenbooks, but I wasn’t sure they were even still around. They haven’t been for years around me.

    Now I’m dealing with Barnes and Noble and Borders. All of their locations seem to carry everything ever done by about three cartoonists and nothing else.

    It’s not right when you can’t impulsively buy the new Lio collection around Halloween.
