Photo taken by Employee Aaron’s wife Kempo late last Tuesday night, after I’d finished breaking down the comic order and pulling for the comic savers. I was one pooped funnybook peddler.
About that sign: this pic was taken from behind the counter, and employees kept stacking stuff that wasn’t tired comic shop managers on top of those back issue boxes. Of course, the sign has been torn a time or two, almost solely by me as I keep moving boxes around from the other side of the counter and forgetting that sign is taped up there. And when I posed for that pic, I forgot the sign had come loose again…but it matched pretty much how I felt, so I let it be.
I shared this image with pal Andrew earlier today, and he sent this back to me:
Yeah, that’s about right.
Also, in the upper left side of the photo, right there next to the doorway?
I know, it’s hard to see…but that’s totally a Scarlet Spider cut-out that I’ve had posted on the store wall since whenever that Scarlet Spider business was originally happening. In fact, there was a store move in the middle of that period of time…it was on the wall in the old store, I took it down when we moved, and I put it up in the new store. …Because it makes me laugh, that’s why.
