Root’s relatives had no prior retail experience and ran the store from afar. After Root’s death, many long-time employees left and the store began to have cash flow problems. (Its 2005 move to a larger, more expensive, location, may have been a factor as well.), In December 2010, the store was basically bankrupt and was on the verge of closing its doors unless a new owner came in with a cash infusion. On February 14, 2011, the store went out of business.

In March 2011 it was announced that two separate comics retailers were opening to replace Comic Relief, one in its old location (Fantastic Comics) and one with the previous store’s stock (The Escapist Comic Bookstore).


Comic Relief was one of the first stores to stock graphic novels, presaging their popularity by many years. Root also made a point of supporting self-publishers and minicomics artists. In 1993, Root was awarded the Will Eisner Spirit of Retailing Award in honor of his exemplary work in promoting the genre.


Root and then-partner Michael Patchen opened Comic Relief on April 15, 1987, on University Avenue in Berkeley.


Rory D. Root (November 8, 1957 – May 19, 2008) was the owner of Comic Relief, an influential comic book retailer in Berkeley, California.
