How would you like to own your own comic book store..for only $25?


The owner of an Illinois comic book store is searching for a new owner for the business in an unusual way — an essay contest. Carmelo Chimera said Chimera Comics (in suburban Chicago) will be turned over with all of its inventory to whomever writes him the most compelling essay and submits a $25 application fee. The essay subject is “What Make A Great Comic Book Store?” and Chimera said it should be no more than 500 words. Chimera, who owns two other comic book stores in addition to practicing law and creating his own graphic novels, said he does not have enough time to continue operating the store himself. Applications are being accepted through February 28 or whenever Chimera receives 2,000 applications
