Rory and I at WonderCon last February
Rory Root was a great human being. He was generous, funny, well informed, full of anecdotes.
And a visionary retailer. Way back when, he believed he understood the future of comic book retailing ,and he set out to make his ideas became reality. His Berkeley store, Comic Relief, was unlike any other.
He was a great friend to Beanworld and a good pal of mine.
His great silver coffee cup is now forever empty and will miss him as much as we will.
