From the Vault: 20th Anniversary Edition Part 2
Continuing our examination of Comix Connection's 20 year history, we come to this image of the (second) storefront at the Delco Plaza Mall:
That is pretty lackluster looking now, but it seemed like a marquee on Broadway when we first saw it lit up! We're in business!
There are three things I remember looking at this picture:
#1 - The size of our sign was predicated by the amount of frontage we had... it could only be a certain percentage of our storefront, which in this case was only 15' wide (and 100' long. We used to jokingly refer to this store location as "The Archery Range" or "The Spaghetti Factory.")
#2 - Ned and I asked the sign-maker what the best colors were to be seen at a distance, and he said "Green on Yellow", and thus was born Comix Connection's traditional colors.
#3 - Oh, and I think that sign was $450.00, which was an enormous amount of money at that time. Actually, $450.00 still IS an enormous amount of money.
What do you remember about this location?
