Magic Mirror Comics located in Mill Creek, Washington is reportedly going out of business.
The story was broken by YouTuber, The Quartering, who read an email from a fan indicating the store is shutting down and moving all of the subscription boxes to nearby Subset Comics.
The news of Magic Mirror Comics going out of business comes less than two months after Heather Harris McFarlane, who works at the shop, promised to to “drag and dunk” Antarctic Press for publishing Diversity & Comics, Jon Malin, and Brett R. Smith’s Jawbreaker – Lost Souls graphic novel.
She would go on to promise that “whoever publishes it is losing my business, and my customers will know why.”
Not only did Magic Mirror Comics promise to go after the publisher, but she also decided to target her own customers. A customer by the name of Dylan who makes YouTube videos on his channel TheRealComicBookGamer claims he was kicked out of the store for supporting Jawbreakers – Lost Souls.
The shop claimed on their website they were “the target of a coordinated harassment campaign by anti-diversity “activists.”
Before the Jawbreakers – Lost Souls incident, the shop seemed to be struggling financially as they had created a GoFundMe to raise money for the store. The Quartering claims the shop also convinced a friend to invest $20,000 into the store following their promise to drag and dunk whoever publishes Jawbreakers – Lost Souls.
Magic Mirror Comics has deleted their Twitter page, their Facebook page, and their Tumblr account. Their Instagram is still active and their website is still up and running. When attempting to call the store, the phone rings for a number of minutes before disconnecting.
Dylan is celebrating the shop’s reported closing.
