StoreWatch: How one store in Berkeley that had its head chopped off, grew two new heads...
Brothers Uel and Jeff Carter took over Comic Relief’s space at 2026 Shattuck Ave. with comic book creator Erik Larsen and started Fantastic Comics in May.
About three miles away, at 3090 Claremont Ave., Jack Rems purchased the entire inventory of Comic Relief and opened The Escapist Comic Bookstore in March next door to his Dark Carnival Bookstore, which he also owns.
“Berkeley seems to have always had a little civil war of comic bookstores, but I think us both being here helps each other,” Rems said. “Just as if there were only one bookstore in Berkeley, it would be really sad if there was just one comic bookstore here.”
They say I am a work in progress. The fools.
