Thursday thuds.

I mentioned the first 7 days of the month were smoking hot, and how I didn't trust it.

Sure enough, the next 6 days saw a 40% drop.

Ain't retail fun?

I'm still above average, and still above last year, but ---


I refuse to watch COMIC BOOK MEN.

I can tell from the ads that it's wrong, wrong, wrong. It accentuates all the wrong things.

No, I don't want to buy your fanboy thing. Really.

No, I don't know what it's worth.

No, I don't want to hear about how you 'used to' really be into comics.

No, I really don't like to tease or haze either employees or customers.

No, I'm not really that interested in aggressively clever nerdy fanboy talk. I'd much rather have just a normal conversation.

No, most comic readers are just normal people. (And so are most comic book store owners...)

No, I will not have an orgasm over seeing your Wonder Woman #1. Sorry to disappoint. I'm about the reading.


Having gone to C.O.C.C. in the mid-70's, it blows my mind that it costs around 4000.00 a year.


Tetherow developer asks for an extension.

Well, of course he does.

And he'll get it, too.

I watched an episode of COMIC BOOK MEN, and from what I could tell, your description is pretty much right.

One other thing about it is, I noticed they are a BUY and sell shop, unfortunately, I also noticed they paid someone $250 for a set of comics. This set was one I found in better condition online for less than $40 for the whole set.

They also promoted the, very wrong, stereotype that people that read comics are epic nerds and freaks.

Yes, I will not be watching another episode.
