Ever since I was a kid during the 1970s, reading the four-color adventures of Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, The Flash, Green Lantern, and the like, I wanted to own my own comic book store. In 1991, I did just that, opening Fantastic Comics & Cards in the Fort Worth area with my brother-in-law, Mike. We even opened a second location. Prior to that, I worked for Lone Star Comics, first in the backroom, then as store manager.
Nowadays, I’m a writer (including a 14-year stint freelancing for The Comics Buyer’s Guide), but I’m still a comic book retailer, selling comics and other pop culture items via my antique mall booth, The Time Machine: Comics & More Store. It is booth #1320 in LoneStar Antiques—when you go, just ask one of the employees at the front desk to show you where the comic book booth is. In addition to old and recent comics, I carry action figures, video games, books (including vintage paperbacks), Hot Wheels, trading cards, records, laser discs, DVDS, toys, VHS tapes, CDs, and other cool stuff. If you’re ever in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, stop by and check it out. Thanks for your business!
