A Moment of Silence for Atomic Comics

Fans around Arizona, and the nation, are coping with the loss of local comic book store, Atomic Comics.

Last night, all four stores quietly closed for the last time. No official word on the Atomic Comics site, but the closure has been confirmed by former employees and other sources.

This is a sad moment and I want to add my voice to the throngs of fans and patrons mourning the loss of this great chain of stores. Atomic is where I first picked up great titles like, The Walking Dead, and Chew… they will be missed.
