  3. Wait... didn't he say this inside your comic book shop? Did it actually take him until he was inside the comic book store to realize that there was one in his neighborhood? Does your comic book store have a secret identity?

  10. Wow. I wish the local shop was in my neighborhood. Not the other way around since it sits on the edge of a bad part of the city. I'm always afraid of being mugged when I go to buy Batman.

  12. It's never what they say that makes me surprised - it's that they had the audacity to say it in your store. People are weird.

    I know. I'm one of them. I'm a freelance writer, so I'm unemployed 95% of the time. I hang out in book stores and coffee shops. Not comic book stores, cause it's just too damn expensive.

  14. YES, NERDS! Forming tightly knit street gangs, they roam the dark alleys behind computer/comic book/video game stores, heavily meme-ing all who cross their path. Since the rise of nerd gangs, deaths from pocket protector-related beatings as well as severe trollings have skyrocketed.
