To his friend as they walked out of the store...

This was because I didn't want to buy his copy of Wolverine #2
(that came out a month ago) that he claimed was
"gonna be worth a fuck-load of green, bro."

  2. I don't see why I comic shop that has copies of the comic in stock wouldn't want to buy it. "Hey, I have unsold copies, might as well add to them."

    Last I checked, comic shops were not in the business of speculating on comics.

  4. For some reason, after reading this, now I can't get the Simpson's episode where Bart and Millhouse buy Radioactive Man #1 out of my head.

  5. Just watched that one last night Ernest!

    I would have said "sorry man, comics are like cars and you drove yours off the lot!"

  7. Stumbled over here from iFanboy.
    Wow, I must say this is hilarious.
    I've got a friend whom works at a comic shop and I'll pop in to say hi from time to time and normally hang out for a little while. I've been a comic reader for a number of years and just from eavesdropping or even having the misfortune of getting sucked into conversation with some folks, I've seen first hand some of these comments.
    Kudos!
    Keep it going.

    Urgh, I know THAT one.

    When I worked in a comic shop, I had to constantly tell people that we where a retailer and NOT a dealer. We get them direct, then distribute.

    I managed to keep it that simple and not flip out (somehow) on a regular basis.

  9. I can see why he loves Wolverine, since his fingers are actually claws.
