Never just a store
therefore Never really gone.
Back in the Fall 2015, a little comic and game store opened up in the Harewood area of Nanaimo. Two guys, boxes and boxes of comic art, a TV and some game consoles, several tables and board games… If that’s all it was that’d be one thing.
The Two-Headed Giant had one more thing going for it. It was a place where neighborhood kids could go and hang out, keeping out of trouble, socializing and building some strong friendships.
Speaking for myself alone, I have made friends at The Giant that will likely last until I am an old man, drooling onto my shirt in a nursing home (though I suspect they’ll keep in touch more by email and messenger by then :).
