The place is brand new and shiny, and loaded with fresh hopeful landscaping.
Part of the exhibition included a well-made film about local elementary school children learning how to invent their own comic book characters. Two in this image from the movie: Inviza Girl and Pupgirl. Santa Fe's ubiquitous and very pleasant mayor, David Coss, was there, and he gave out True Believers Comic Shop gift certificates to the lucky winners of a drawing. Our older daughter was not too crushed that her younger sister won a gift certificate, because the best prize of the day might have been when we overheard a 13-year-old boy say that Emma's art was the best in the entire exhibition.
