Richard Evans knows you’re never too old to appreciate the magic of a funny book. The owner of Houston’s Bedrock City Comics has been in the biz since opening his first shop in March 1990. Today, he’s opened additional outposts paying homage to those Mylar-encased treasures, bringing Evans’ Bedrock store count to four.
As to be expected, the biz maintains an impressive stock of the usual suspects from Batman adventures to the buxom Ms. Marvel and X-Men, as well as much-sought-after collectible editions. But it’s not all funny books here. (“Does the Louvre only house works by Da Vinci?”) Among Bedrock’s well-organized shelves are action figures, manga, apparel, graphic novels and limited-edition figurines.
