•   I have moved to Patterson/the Modesto area, in Stanuslaus County, CA. I tried to look up comic shops in here, all in Modesto proper I believe, on Yelp...all the tech I have now are various low-end phones (I'm putting off larger purchase still I've settled down), and I don't think I am a Yelp member on any of them - these phones come so pre-packed with apps that I can only fit in Messenger and (free) Pandora without running out of space - But, anyway. There were some facts about comics shops I could find here  it seemed that - two?? - three?? stores describe d that I could find, plus one listed as a " Books " first, comics after that...and one comics shop still listed that was out of business now! You read the headline which sums it up, yes. I am handicapped (I walk with a crutch. I have been insurance-approved for an electric wheelchair/cart of some sort - I might need it sometimes - including, incidentally, if I ever go to big convention again, I've thought I'd need one for protection & carrying stuff.). There's no standard public transportation up here, there is s Paratransit-type thing I am eligible for, but I've yet to set things up. Before you suggest ' Go to every one and decide which one..." Um, in my last Santa Cruz days I went on rather on a spending spree on comics shop, now all neatly boxed up in the closet behind me - I have planned for an " Emerkeith Reads...' ongoing thread or maybe more to make use of some of the collections I've bought  - but anyway, my baby spending on funnybooks stuff recently Has To Stop. So, tempting myself with ' get-aquainted " visits to several different ones...That's not to say I won't go around and try out, but...

...So. Ya getsk th' indeer, non?

Iou...Thank you! That's just basic facts, methinks??...I've always meant to use it, bluntly, to see if the not-that-practical comics shops in the US (and Canada too. I guess) if there are entire states (provinces) without any CSd...Perhaps they keep it to "Search A Zip Code " for just that reason, avoiding being a Debbi Downer!Seeing Publisher's Statements in modern times (This century millennium) (Um. maybe they're not run anymore?), even for the Big Two...has made me think that entire lesd-populated states might boast less than 50 (perhaps CONSIDERABLY less) copies per state... Mr. Cheerful, eh? You're never fully dressed without a smile:-)...
