Of all the comic book stores worldwide only two can claim the honor of being best in the world and one of the winners is in Omaha.
Legends Comics & Coffee near South 52nd and Leavenworth streets was one of the two winners of the Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award at this weekend's Comic-Con in San Diego, sharing the honor with All-Star Comics in Melbourne, Australia.
Legends co-owner David DeMarco says it was exciting to hear the news. “I got the text that there were two winners, so we split the decision with another store and I was like (gasp), then right as I had the realization that there was still hope I got the little text bubble that said we won. Then I jumped up off the floor, I ran around like a crazy person."
Legends was a finalist for the award last year, but did not win. DeMarco expects to receive the award sometime this week.
