Randy T reports:
I was at Fair Oaks Mall and I noticed across the hall was a new store, "The Comic Shop"! I went over and talked to the guy working there who told me they've been opened just over 3 weeks now, and are owned by the same guy that runs Comics & Gaming in Fairfax and Gainesville. They coordinated the Fairfax City store (which is near George Mason University) with Gary at Laughing Ogre to make sure they didn't poach from each other, so that one just sells older comics. Fair Oaks approached them to open a store which sells new comics, and started as something seasonal, but is now successful enough that they're taking subscriptions!
