As Paul Pope alluded to in the comments, Taschen Books, the art book publisher whose sale we were just telling you about, actually started out as a comics publisher, and there’s more about it on their website, including this picture of what a comics shop in Cologne looked like in 1980, with a picture of a young Benedikt Taschen. Their first comics publication was a German edition of Wally Wood’s erotic adventure, Sally Forth.


  1. It’s odd for me to see this pic; this past October I was in Cologne, and, losing my sense of direction, I stumbled into this very store, looking for directions back to my cruise ship (and they were extemely helpful)!

    Taschen has come a long way since this pic!
