From the vault - 20th Anniversary Edition Part 14

Ned sent this old photograph along for me to post here... gaze in wonder at the earliest known photo (and one of the very few in existence) of the original 333-square-feet Comix Connection location in the front of the International Family Restaurant at the Delco Plaza!


(That's Jodie Senft there on the sidewalk... HI JODIE!)

If they hadn't demolished Delco Plaza a couple of years ago, I would sneak over there some night and superglue a brass plaque to that Historic Site!

Wow! I didn't know that they killed the Delco Plaza! I take Rt 74 from Mechanicsburg into York when I visit your current store, so I no longer have any reason to any further than the left-hand turn into the mall. Didn't know that if I drove under that bridge I would soon see a big crater on my left. Did they put anything in it's place?

No crater, just a shiny new strip, with nice new businesses... no trace of the old Delco Plaza.

Wotta beautiful woman, I am the luckiest guy in the universe.

I wonder what Jodie and Spidey were looking at? Was the goblin attacking? Spidey seems ready for action, but Jodie just seems a little clueless......

The one thing I will never forget about that store is the can of bathroom air freshner that we kept behind the counter. There was a customer who came in who was the cause of that safety feature...... NUFF SAID!

-snif snif- no more Delco Plaza? How will I be able to navigate around York with all the old landmarks gone. Where will it all end, where will it all end??

I think the only thing left of Delco is a stain in the parking lot where Uncle Igor passed out...
