Obituary: Gary Arlington

Comic store owner Gary Arlington (b.1938) died on January 16 of heart failure. Arlington opened the San Francisco Comic Book Company in 1968 and it quickly became a focal point for up-and-coming underground comic book authors and artists, including R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, and Ron Turner. Arlington’s store may have been the first store dedicated to selling only comics.
