A Report from the Pantom Zone: Comic Store as Art Gallery

When I was little, I remember watching "The Terminator" with my father and saying "Wow, that guy was really strong." My father replied, "Well, that's one type of strength. There are many different types of strength and one sign of wisdom is the ability to see less obvious, more subtle strength in those around you."

Ever since then, I've done my best to see the less obvious, less showy displays of strength, beauty, wisdom, etc. all around me. I think a lot of artists, critics, and magazine publishers share the same point of view.

So today, I'm going to review the comic store the same way I'd review a gallery. Just like reviewing a gallery, I'm going to speak mostly about the comics that I do like, because by definition I feel that the comics that I don't like are not worth spending much time on.

If you have a comic line that you particularly like, please, mention it in the comment section along with a little reason why you like it.


P.S. Special thanks to Pat Quinn, a comic genius.
