From the Vault: 20th Anniversary Edition Part 3

A fine shot from the York Store (the Spaghetti Factory)... if you look close, you can see the gleam in our eyes that will be the Camp Hill Mall store, still a year or two away at this point (1990 or so)...


I can just make out an issue of ROGUE TROOPER on the rack, and that's a copy of COMICS VALUES MONTHLY above my shoulder. I can also see BATMAN DIGITAL JUSTICE and ELEKTRA LIVES AGAIN hardcovers...

Oh yeah, and there's some kind of SALE going on at Comix Connection next Friday, Saturday and Sunday...

That's a great pic! Bill looks like he could be in the Smiths or the Cure while Ned seems to be going for a Dennis the Menace thing! I love it!

Hey, with all this talk of the 20th Anniversary, don't you think you should have a special sale or something??? Maybe give 1% off for each year you have been in business....

adozenbananas - That store did have a certain charm, like the constant moviegoer traffic that would use us for a short-cut to the UA Theaters! Still, lots of good times there!

"crappy"?

I love those racks. Those racks have been through a lot, yet still soldier on! Those are great racks. Plus they're nice and yellow.

What's all this about "nice racks"?!?! Did I stumble across the wrong blog?

Ha!!

Who said Johnny Cash is the only man in black!!!

Funny thing- I am thinking that picture was circa 1991-93?? My hair used to look a bit like that, at least, when I was out of the army.

I have always firmly believed that short hair is the clean-cut American way, and have tried to live that ideal.
