Comics chain gang

Michigan State University's State News checks in on East Lansing's 21st Century Comics & Games, which was bought in late November by The Fantasy Shop Inc. The company owns seven other stores in the St. Louis, Mo., area. Here's owner David Wallace:

"There are no national chains in comics -- it's definitely a small-market business. We'd like to believe we can become the first (national chain)."

What about Mile High? I suppose it depends how you define "national," and "first," for that matter.
