A Return to a Childhood Comic Book Store

A Return to a Childhood Comic Book Store

When young my mom would take me to the store.

Where I faced a difficult decision.

To spend allowance on this key mission,

find pulp novels or comics to explore.

Away from strip where dealers sell car deals

our only comic book store sits alone.

Within these racks of ink my worlds have grown

in boxes of heroic grand ordeals.

Here one son likes to read graphic novels.

The other sticks with classic Mickey Mouse.

Inherit these memories, a sense of place.

My daughter loves Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I hope to find an illustrated Faust,

to learn our morals at a different pace.

    I grew up reading comic books and even one time did a book report for school on a comic book from classic comics based on the H.G. Wells novel “The Invisible Man” and got an A-plus. I did not red the novel until years later….thanks for the trip back Jamie

    With seven of us kids our home was always filled with comic books. Thanks for the bit of nostalgia, Jamie.
