Comic Relief, the iconic comic book store on Shattuck Avenue, closed its doors yesterday. The closing has been likely for months, with reduced business and staff turnover following the death of founder Rory Root two years ago. Berkeleysider Christopher Allen pointed us to a tribute to the store on Shannon A’s blog. Shannon suggests that science fiction specialist Dark Carnival plans to reopen the store under a different name if they can secure the lease.
