Geoffrey’s Comic Shop, Circa 1981

Geoff 1981-1

Geoff 1981-2

Geoffrey Patterson Sr. (first photo) opened his awesome shop in 1978. Geoffrey Jr., who is interviewed here, took over in 2004. The South Bay landmark is still going strong.

The guy wearing the hat in the second photo is wearing an X-Men t-shirt—the hat may also say X-Men. The movie posters hanging from the ceiling are Raid on Entebbe (1976) and High Risk (1981). Can’t make out the arcade cabs.

More comic book stores here.

    You’re probably getting tired of me doing this but, the cabinet on the left is Mrs Pac Man. The one on the right eludes me.
