Topic: Comic Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3705 - As stated in last week's blogs... We are back from a Summer Vacation visiting Tina's family in South New Jersey!
While there we both took in a tour of a few LCBS (Local Comic Book Shops) in the South New Jersey area, plus the Philadelphia Comic-Con that took place on Sunday, August 19th at the Ramada Philadelphia Airport in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Last Thursday's blog, #3700, was the review blog on the Comic-Con.
Today's blog is a review blog on the third of the LCBS that we saw in South New Jersey.
That would be 'Fat Jack's Comicrypt' at 521 White Horse Pike, in Oaklyn, NJ.
The top middle photo above this text is myself, at the front window of this LCBS.
The third photo, (at the top right), is a photo of the LCBS's frontage on White Horse Pike.
I found that the location of this LCBS was easy to find, even though the width of the shop was a little small.
As stated, the exterior frontage of this LCBS was a little small, but when opening the door, I could see that it was shaped in a long rectangular size, and was deeper in depth than I expected from seeing the frontage!
There were a couple of female customers in the shop when we arrived, and shop manager Brian Rappa, was serving them.
While I checked out the LCBS and took photos, (which can be seen in this special photo album at my Facebook fan page), Tina started checking out the back issue bins.
Brian declined to be photographed for the photo album, but was well versed in comics history. His knowledge of comics and his well stocked back issue bins make this LCBS a good place to fill in holes in comic book runs, IMO, if you live close to Oaklyn.
I found a few back issue magazines that I hadn't seen before and picked those up for myself while we were there.
My thanks to Brian Rappa for showing me around this LCBS during our trip to South New Jersey!
Here is the web site link for Fat Jack's Comicrypt, which has its main LCBS in Philadelphia, PA.
Here is the link to the Facebook fan page for Fat Jack's Comicrypt.
Plus again, here is the link to the special photo album at my Facbook Fan Page that I shot during this part of our trip.
BTW, I should mention, and will now... That this LCBS in New Jersey is home to approximately five cats, which frequent the insides of the shop. So those of you that are allergic to cats, please be advised.
