So i'm your pretty average girl, you know, nothing too striking about me. But I went to this comic book store today, and felt like a goddess. I walk in to this hole-in-the-wall shop(found it in the Yellow Pages) and it's these two guys just hanging out. One, i find later, is the owner and the other is his friend...who just chills there, I guess. haha, I try to be casual about browsing the shelves but I am clearly the first 'off the street' customer in a long time. Finally the owner says "Can I help you find anything?" which eventually leads me to telling them that I want to buy some comic books for an art project, to cut up. They looked at me dumbdfounded, and the friend takes a glance at the Spiderman I've got in my hands and says "Well, I wouldn't do it to that one, if i were you." OH MAN. So 20 minutes later I've got 5 not-so-great comics worthy of decopage (which, i'd like to add, I got mad discounts on), a background on "new" vrs "old" style series, suggestions for some good reading, AND an invitation to come back next saturday for a sale/auction extraveganza. As I leave, the owner wishes me a fabulous afternoon and says "Hope to see you again next week!" haha.
