Its the darnedest thing. People walk past our store inside the 5th Street Public Market. They pick up the most current or a recent favorite issue and start talking about us to their friend. Right there in front of us. Granted, its unusual for a magazine to have a store at all, much less […]

We seem to have traded one confusion for another. Shortly after we renamed ourselves from Comic News to (for reasons exhaustively chronicled in this space and available anytime at www.dksez.com), we published Help Wanted ads here and in the daily paper.

Is the economy rebounding? I know many many business owners and managers who find themselves terribly conflicted about that bit of prognostication. On one hand, we hope the economy is improving because we have seen the wreckage from the recession all around us, up close and personal. People out of work, others living in fear […]
