     POCATELLO — The television show "Walking Dead" and the movie series "The Twilight Saga" are examples of storylines that first came to life on the pages of a comic book — one of Artist Bob Beason's lifelong passions.

    The semi-retired art teacher owns a comic book store called Captain Bengal's Comic Cove. It recently moved to 348 N. Third Ave.

    Congratulations to my friend, Bob, and his son-in-law for carrying on the service of providing an entertaining art and story-telling medium to the area!

    As the former owner of one of the comic book stores that "have come and gone over the years in Pocatello," I wish both the best of luck.

    A couple of points, though, concerning the article as many may be confused by Ms. Scardino's "typos." I am confident she meant Rembrandt rather than his lesser known cousin, Lembrant. Also, Doctor Stranger is better known as Dr. Strange; unless, of course, he's really gone off the edge! :-)

    Once again, Bob and Jim, may the win be always at your sales! Yes, pun intended...
