Once upon a time, this questionably punctuated slogan was the beacon for comic fans everywhere; it was the message of a sign that would be perched atop the ubiquitous spinner-racks that displayed and dispensed four-color fantasies like a mythical tree that bloomed in newsstands, drugstores, and many other places comics were sold.
