What’s In a Store (Reprise)

Five years ago, when I was in the midst of a move across the continent, I wrote about my experiences looking for a new comic book store.  I eventually found one that suited my needs.  It happens to be on the other side of town- I live in an eastern suburb and my regular shop is just north of downtown- but it has a good…
