Do you remember your 1st trip to a comic book shop

I had bought comics on and off at supermarkets, hallmark cards and newstand, but a college comic store opened in Dekalb run by Paul Bisgaard. the inflation of the 70’s made people sell them and I bought many of the older x-men for 50 cents apiece. The title was reruns and no one seemed to care that Neal Adams and Jim Steranko did some specular art there.

    I grew up in De Kalb in the 70s and bought nearly my whole Spider-man collection at Bisgaard’s over the course of about five years. Strangely I had a dream about Paul last night and decided out of curiosity to see if I could track him down on-line, and your blog is the only place that his name or the store comes up on the entire Internet.

      Jonathan, Thanks for the comment. Paul helped me complete the Neal Adams/Jim Steranko X-men series. I spent my paper route money at his store.
