More sad news from the land of toys and comics and comedy. Meltdown Comics will be closing down beginning on April 1st 2018. The Los Angeles nerd-Mecca landmark has been ground zero for so much in the art world. While I unfortunately lost touch with Gaston in recent years, you can see how much Plastic and Plush was influenced by him and Meltdown. Just look back through our archives at everything Meltdown-related. They were one of the first galleries that we regularly covered, 10-plus years ago. In addition to comic books, art, and toys, the Comics in Meltdown's name could also be a reference to the number of comedians that made the back room their home away from home.
So, after 25 years, we say goodbye to Meltdown Comics - one of the originators.
