Gay bookstore Lambda Rising to close

Gay bookstore Lambda Rising to close says the Washington Post. The owner's reached retirement age, and I wish he'd sell his chain instead as there are a decent amount of both gay cartoonists and gay comics. Lamba Rising hosted Allison Bechdel signings when she was just doing 'Dykes to Watch Out For' (an excellent strip) and hadn't hit the big big time with 'Fun Home' (an excellent graphic biography).

With the loss of the Blade, gay comics in DC have taken quite a hit this year.
