Well, it’s with much joy and an equal amount of sadness that we say goodbye to our good friend and fellow HERO, Rusty Baily. He declared way back in the spring that he was movin’ to Hawaii, but I think we all thought/hoped he was either kidding or would change his mind. He’s sold, or given away, almost everything he owns but his eco-friendly Prius, 3 or 4 suitcases of clothes, his awesome pooch “Q,” and of course his Luke Cage collection. He and Q are taking off in the Prius Tuesday for the West coast and a flight to paradise about a week later. So I guess he is really doing it!

I’ve known Rusty for over 20 years! First as an enthusiastic 12 year old comic collector, and for the past 5 or 6 years as friend, neighbor and part-time employee. He’s still as enthusiastic as when he first came in the store and just a pleasure to be around. His work ethic and conscience will be hard to replace. He’s always been ready to jump in wherever he was needed and work extra days and overtime especially around HeroesCon time. I think we all are a little jealous that Rusty has the guts and ambition to take such a step. Heroes is going to miss you Rusty! We wish you all the best, and hurry up and get that big ‘ole house on the beach ready. We’re all coming for a vacation!
