What If Comics and Collectables closing at month’s end: For four years, the owners have tried to make a comic book store supplemented with other collectable items work at 1850 Redmond Cir NW, Ste 700 in West Rome. There was at least one other time when a decision to close to close the doors was close but they held on. Come Oct. 30, What If will end its run. The shop is offering 30 percent off some goods except for new comics. For collectors, the last shipment of new comics books from DC, Marvel and stuff will be Oct. 24. Says a Facebook post made earlier this month: “The day has come, we have tried and tried but we must close down. The business just isn’t sustainable anymore.”
Although some outlets sell comics amid other publications, Rome had been without a true comics book shop since Gordon Lee’s “Legends” shop that was on Broad Street and later moved to Mount Berry Square. Lee died in January 2013 following a series of strokes.
