Confounded Books Closing Details

I missed the initial announcement, but this longer piece by Matt Silvie gives details on the closure of Seattle's Confounded Books, a prominent retailer for art and alternative comix in that city. Seattle's always been slightly weird in that despite a heavy art comics cartoonist presence a Meltdown or a Chicago Comics has never developed to be that acknowledged top of the line comics retail presence. Instead, comics buying was split between an intermittent but solid presence in bookstores (which if nothing else led to signings being held in such locations), the more traditional comics retailer Zanadu, and a couple of smaller stores (Fallout, then Confounded) with a definite side interest (music and movies, respectively) present. I have no idea why this is.
