Andy Runton of Owly fame was going about his own business on the internet when he saw this photo of the front of Legend Comics in Florence, SC.
It’s from Facebook and it isn’t a throwback show from the 90s, but an actual update of the storefront that they are proud of.
To be fair, a lot of fellows miss adult video stores and want to have that same old feeling of going to a man’s place to talk about man’s things.
Also the 90s are super hot right now.
The comments to the above photo of the store’s own FB page did reveal some dichotomy of thought however.
To be fair the interior of the store does look well stocked, if you ignore the girly pin-up art everywhere.
The owners of the store are obviously free to promote their establishment any way they want, but based on the 100 shares among comics creators on FB alone, they may find that other people object to it as an outmoded way of thinking and marketing comics. And a reminder that we don’t make this shit up.
