DATELINE covered the Michael George case on Friday and a complete transcript and video excerpt are up.

Lenora Ward: She knew our names. Immediately when we would walk in, she would light up with a smile. Many times, she would actually come around the counter to greet us.

But not on this early evening, just after 6 p.m. Tom and Lenora had thumbed through the bins and found their comic, but no one was there to take their money, not Barb or her husband Michael, the co-owner. Some teenagers in the shop weren’t being waited on either.

In addition to the expected lurid graphics, there are also some old photos of the store as it looked in the 90s.

Were the 90s really so long ago that that car looks like an LeSabre or something?


  1. Good lord. Serif “I”.

    I’ve never liked these DATELINE Murder things. They draw out a 28 minute story to one hour and it becomes really tedious when you already know the ending.

  2. On a audio taped conversation that was broadcast on that show, Michael George referred to Golden Age comics being taken in the alleged robbery. However, earlier in the program, we were shown a list of Silver Age titles that had allegedly been taken. Hmmm…

  3. My local comics shop in Connecticut at that time was also called Comics World. I’ve come across several others around the country over the years. Is that not the most unimaginative name for a comic book store?

  4. >>Is that not the most unimaginative name for a comic book store? << I figured it would be one of the stores named after a famous title, like "ACTION COMICS" or "AMAZING FANTASY." I've also seen a bunch of the years named "COMICS AND THINGS" or "COMICS & THINGS". (no disprespect meant to any store with aforementioned names.)
