Located in the heart of the Crown Point Square, in the historic former People’s Bank building is Chemshaw 13 DonutZ & Comics, a new pop culture Donut Shop and Comic Book Store. The owners are local Crown Point residents, husband and wife Jason and Lynette Sullivan. The idea of a Bakery inside of a comic book store is a very original idea, and Jason tells of the occasion that sparked that idea. Kevin Smith, the American screen writer and actor, was speaking at a questions and answers panel at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2), sharing some antics and stories. One story was he would walk almost 2 miles to a local doughnut shop and buy three dozen peanut butter and jelly doughnuts. Knowing he has one of the most successful comics shops in the country, Lynette jokingly quipped that if there were a bakery inside of Kevin’s comic book store he wouldn’t have to walk so far. What was simply an innocent joke was a light bulb in both of their heads. Soon after, Lynette proposed the idea to Jason of such an establishment and there was no one better to operate it than them. Lynette was a pastry & pantry chef at the Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada for 10 years and trained under 5 star chefs. Jason, who is a pop culture enthusiast and table top gamer, knew he could cover the games, novelties and comics. “When I first saw the Crown Point square I was in awe. It reminded me of the movie ‘Back to the Future’ with the giant clock tower [Old Lake County Courthouse], I thought ‘You have to be kidding me, this is… amazing... where’s the Delorean’. And when we were looking for a location for our store, I knew it had to be in Crown Point. This is where we live.” Jason says. The name of their donut shop / comic book store is “Chemshaw 13 DonutZ & Comics”.  Chemshaw 13 was named after a Magic shop in a role playing game Jason wrote himself, that is now known nationwide. The doughnuts are all made daily on site in the bakery. Make sure to look at their sign which sports a comic book adaptation of Jason and Lynette as their favorite comic book characters. Stop in to experience an atmosphere which is like no other, decorated in original art from your favorite comic book series. There are delicious DonutZ unlike anything you have ever seen or tasted, board and card games, and the latest and greatest in comics...you better have an appetite!

Once upon a time...
