Comic Book Resources directs our attention this afternoon to the Twitter account of Zeus Comics owner Richard Neal, where he sent word this morning about an overnight smash-and-grab at the Lemmon Avenue shoppe. From the sound of it, someone kicked in the front window with a "steel toed boot" and got out of there with $1,700 worth of T-shirts -- every last one in the store, matter of fact. Neal seems to be taking it well: A couple of hours ago he sent word that "at least we were able move that last Strangers in Paradise shirt even if it was theft. Good luck trying to sell that at Traders Village!" Which, if your a comics nerd familiar with the works of Terry Moore, is hilarious.
