Faux Pas At The Comic Shop

So I headed down to the comic shop for New Comic Day (so not Free Comic Day) and while I was browsing, about a pile of 30 Buffy comics fell from the top shelf on my head. And you know, the area is crowded enough as it is with all the customers, and the floor is now covered in smushed copies of BTVS.

"I didn't do it!" I insisted. Which was true, I didn't even bump it. I was looking at "Countdown" instead, I swear it.

Mad scramble by everyone to pick up the copies. People are stepping on them.

I don't usually buy Dark Horse's Buffy, but I (the superstitious) bought one last night.

And in case you were wondering, Dawn is still a giantess. (Always found that plot a little corny, but...)

BTW, Tom Beland's True Story Swear to God #10 was sold out, after a 15-minute search throughout the store to locate it.

And I bought my sweetie the Bucky action figure, because that's how I roll. Even though in my opinion the figure looks a little dorky -- tiny head, big ears.


  1. Email me your snail-mail address and I'll sent one out to you. Signed! OOOOOOOOOOOhhhhh!!

  2. Jeez, I wonder in what issue Dawn will shrink back to normal size...probably the last one.

  3. Giant Dawn isn't so great, but I like it a lot overall.

  4. Buffy Season 8's been a very solid read but I think you were cheated by fate by not having last month's issue fall on your head instead. That one was pretty damn nifty whereas this one was merely darn nifty.

    And I still think Giant Dawn is hilarious.

  5. K.D.- you liked last month's better? Huh, I preferred this month's ("itchy neck" gave me a good laugh, out loud on the subway I might add)

    O.S.- you are in NY, right? Which store do you go to?

  6. True Story also sold out at my local, too. When asked at the counter, the staff member said "we haven't had that title in for months." I now wonder what alternate reality I bought the last few issues from then...

  7. Hi Valerie,

    My name's Jon Haehnle, I'm the producer of and I wanted to see if you'd be interested in becoming a PCS contributor -- actually, I wanted to email you about it but I couldn't find any contact info, so I'm posting on an older post and assuming you'll see this. Please email to discuss further.

    Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you.
