Comic Den In Renton: Fire Victim

If I'm reading this piece correctly, the downtown Renton, Washington comic book shop Comic Den was the victim of a large fire that started in one of the upstairs apartments on the block. After typing and linking up that sentence, I see the comics business news and analysis site has a short piece up, too. The owner hopes to relocate temporarily and suffered limited inventory losses because of his focus on new comics rather than expensive collectibles. Comic Den was the comic shop of choice of many employees at the nearby Wizards Of The Coast gaming company during that company's late '90s heyday, and I assume remains a popular stop for folks that continue to work there.
