Because comics have always been at the cutting edge of cool...
And he said this in a comic book shop??? What was he DOING there?
lol, my thoughts exactly.
that was my first thought too.
Maybe he was there to let everyone else know how cool he is?
Coolness . . . why most businesses are started.

The best part of this one is that it means that presumably at some point he picked up comics in an effort to be "cool" and then about two years ago it came to his attention that comic books were not cool at all. Probably encountered some type of wise-crack or teasing or noticed an episode of Big Bang Theory where "Nerds read Comics" was a punchline.So, he dropped comics like a sack of bricks, and then he picked up what? What does he think is cool now? When he tells his friend "This is how you become cool like me" where does that go?
Well, I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing:http://blogs.laweekly.com/westcoastsound/2012/08/worst_hipster_bands_top_20.php
What's he going to do when neck tattoos are no longer cool?
This guy is still doing shell art.
But...but I don't WANT to be cool! I just want my Green Lanterns, dammit.
What happened 2 years ago? Did it happen outside of this guy's brain?
The neck tat, the gauges, and the rectangular no-frame glasses literally scream, "I'M A HIPSTER D-BAG!" "Shut up you idiot" is a PERFECT tag for this goof...
When hipsters started dressing like nerds, nerds got their revenge by talking like hipsters.
