My daughter and her friends will know the exhilaration of spending summer days sifting through stacks of books and comics. If I have to open my own store and lose money steadily over several years to make it happen, so be it.

    Dood. Did you read that caption? Miss Taylor has a turnover of 1,000 to 2,000 comics a week. A week. Holy crap man, I never knew comics were that much in demand at the time. It would be interesting to graph her turnover over the years. I wonder if and when sales started to plummet.
