Comic book lovin' West Virginian writer/journalist David Welsh, notes in his blog that he visited Columbus this past weekend and "had a delightful shopping experience at The Laughing Ogre – good selection, friendly staff, etc. " He also came across two other comic shops but was disappointed to find they weren't open (during their posted "open" hours, too!).
Also of note:
There once was a funky, interesting neighborhood called The Short North in Columbus (think Dupont Circle in Washington) that seems to be kind of a victim of its own success (as is Dupont Circle, which has too many pricey shoe stores to be funky and interesting any more). It’s kind of gone mall, if you know what I mean.Yes... I know what you mean and it is very sad for those of us who think character is more than just a pretty face.
