TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3175:

Yesterday I had business in Downtown San Diego. So afterwards I stopped in at a LCBS in the Ocean Beach neighborhood of Metro San Diego.

That LCBS (Local Comic Book Shop), was 'Galactic Comics' owned and managed by Edward 'Ed' Fogarty.

I haven't been there in a long time, because I don't frequent that area of Metro San Diego very often, (beach area).  But a LOT of outlying area residents and visitors to San Diego sure do!

Which is why I am blogging about this today.  The Ocean Beach Street Fair is running between the hours of 10 AM and 8 PM.  It is the 31st Annual Event!

Plus, it is actually the 13th Anniversary of Ed moving Galactic Comics from Voltair to Newport Ave.  He told me how he worked hours on end to be be ready for the 1997 OB Street Fair!

Ed actually started Galactic Comics back in 1994 and it stayed there on Voltaire until 1997.  Congrats to Galactic Comics on staying in business for so long!

I would have to say one of the reasons that Galactic Comics has stayed in business is because of the comics & movies savvy of it's owner, Ed Fogarty!

Truly half of the shop is on comics & TBPs & Graphic Novels, while the other 50% is on DVDs to rent or purchase - action figures - and other pop culture items.  Please Note:  Ed has a fine selection of current titles and possibly a few months of previous issues of those same titles. However, he does NOT carry a backstock of older comic books.

So if you are either visiting San Diego this weekend, or living in the Metro Area, be sure to check out OB's Street Fair and stop in to see Ed's Galactic Comics located at 4981 Newport Ave, San Digo, CA 92107. The phone number is (619) 226-6543!

Of course if you aren't coming to San Diego until later in the Summer, you are welcome to stop in anytime during the LCBS's regular hours of:

Mon - Fri:
    11:00 am - 9:00 pm
Sat - Sun:
    11:00 am - 10:00 pm

You can become a Fan of Galactic Comics at it's Facebook Fan Page by clicking here.

My thanks to Ed Fogarty, for bringing this Ocean Beach Street Fair event to my attention.  The reason it is of such short notice is because I just saw him at his store yesterday afternoon, and this was the earliest I could blog about it!

However, as mentioned in the above post, if YOU find yourself in the Ocean Beach / Point Loma area of Metro San Diego, stop in and check out his LCBS's selection of comics AND selection of DVDs to rent or purchase! 

AND My thanks again to all of YOU reading this blog and our archived blog posts, now over the 3,170 total posts in number!
