It is with great sadness that I report that the enigmatically-named Sleep of Reason Comics Shop at 47 West 8th Street has somewhat unexpectedly closed its doors. While my comic collecting days are largely behind me (I still spring for the odd title every now and again), I was glad to know I had a comic shop nearby should I need a fix.
I know I recently said that W.8th Street has nowhere to go but up, but the departure of Sleep of Reason now seems like one more worrying step towards the Meat Packing District-ification of my back yard. Save Us, Dr. Strange!!!
