Evansville, IN Comic Shop vandalized after fire earlier this year


We met Daniel Barritt under unfortunate circumstances earlier this year. Her entire business was lost in the diamond flea market fire. Daniel made lemonade with lemons by opening his own display case, Evansville Toys & Games.

On Sunday, vandals attempted to break his mind and steal his merchandise. Who does something like this, and why?

Daniel’s response is the complete opposite of mine. I am ready to avenge the crime now! But Daniel and his family are already putting the pieces of broken glass behind them.

First of all, no one was injured and that is the most important. I want to thank everyone who stopped to help and everyone who volunteered too. Thanks also to Siemers Glass for the quick repair of our door. Also the work on our windows and the work they will do. Also Master Service for cleaning assistance. Another big thank you to everyone for their continued love and support.

We also stole stuff, mostly game systems, games, and a piece of Pokemon cards. Fortunately, it was no worse and we have stocks to replenish some of it. It was just another bump in the road. We won’t let that stop us from being there for everyone as well. The goal is still the same as it always has been. Bring smiles and happiness to as many people as possible. Things like this won’t change that. We’ll be open tomorrow and ready for business by 11am. Once again you are all awesome and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything.
