Lone Star Comics
Lone Star Comics was a chain of seven stores located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex in north central Texas. Started in 1961 by Jake "Buddy" Saunders as a quaint mail order company, Lone Star Comics debuted as a brick-and-mortar retailer in 1977. The chain's offerings included comic books, action figures, gaming supplies, videos, and many other pop culture items.
While still maintaining business locally, the company returned to its mail order roots in the early 2000s, this time as an online subscription and back-issue service. The online store is called mycomicshop.com (LoneStarComics.com merely redirects to mycomicshop.com).
