You gotta see this!
Dan Shahin from Hijinx Comics in San Jose put together a very cool Google map just for comic book stores.
The idea for this map gestated in the Comic Book Industry Alliance forum on the Delphi network (if you're a comics retailer, you really need to be in this forum. Get the scoop at http://www.theCBIA.com).
Peace 'n' Comics!
