Variety Comics Ending 41-Year Run

"The oldest comic book store in Chicago, Variety Comics, is closing after 41 years; their last day open will be on October 31st," Bleeding Cool reports.

"It opened in the summer of 1974, in Chicago's rundown Lincoln Square neighborhood. In 1975, it was bought by Rich Vitone, who ran it until illness stopped him in 2009. After he died in 2011, the store was taken over by Vin Nguyen and Victor Olivarez.

"And forty years worth of stock is on sale from now, throughout October, comics, statues, toys, supplies, books and magazines."

*

"Business is down," said co-owner Vin Nguyen. "It's sad but you know, it is what it is."
