All I Want To Do Is Sell Comic Books

Many of you have the same passion as myself. We love comic books! I have been collecting comics since I was 14 years old. That was 24 1/2 years ago. While I would not classify myself as an expert, I have a vast knowledge of the industry and consider myself a continuous, progressive student. There are so many interesting things to learn ranging from artist techniques to character history to creator biographies. The field is wide open and as a true lover I am always striving to learn more.

Most of my life I have had careers that were non-related to comic books. However, my heart's desire has always been to have a comic book store or to have a job somehow related to comics. As a kid I wanted to write and pencil for DC or Marvel but those dreams never came about, nor have I given up on that completely. They are still goals I have along those lines. Still, the desire to be involved has never been stronger.

As the economy began to fall, I began to make plans to open a store. But those plans have slowed due to the economic troubles we have all faced. The business I did own practically dried up overnight and the last two years have been a struggle. So I taught myself how to build a website and I am still learning new things. I decided to build an online store and start working towards my dream of a physical store. I opened the online store before it was 100% complete and named it after the name my best friend and I came up with years ago, Krypto-Knight Comics. I try to make my prices fair amd I have worked to do all I can in promoting the store. Jobs are scarce around here and this is my primary means of survival. Having visited many comic book stores in my time and having noted that many are dark, dirty or have a negative atmosphere, it has been my goal to do just the opposite and create a place where positivity and creativity thrive. I would like to see a place where the colors are bright and super-heroes are the order of the day. In today's negative world who wouldn't want to visit a place like that?

At present, though, it's more about survival. I appreciate all who have done business with me and who have helped fuel my dream of owning a literal store. I want to thank all of you for your business, you support and your passion for comics. I look forward to 2011 being our best year yet!


  1. I love your passion and your vision. *Positive* is refreshing and honoring to those you do business with and to yourself. God bless and good luck!

    Dori :-]

  2. I Hope You Prosper In Your Venture, I Totaly Agree With Your View On Alot Of Establishments Being Dark, Dirty And A Negative Atmosphere. I've Been To Alot Of Shops Myself And Alot Have Put Me Off To Not Wanting To Ever Go Back Because Of That Reason. The Industry Needs A Positive Change!!! Good Luck!!!

  3. I need someone in my area to have that philosophy and open a brick and mortar store for me to 'peruse'. I used to love going to my LCB stores to discover new titles. Alas, there are no good shops near me anymore... that said I did just spot a new shop the other day (Comics, Card, CGC and Collectibles) so I'll have to check them out.
