What did you do New Year’s Eve? I explored the neighborhood, and bought comic books. Here’s your Sunday Chuckle.
I was at home taking care of a sickie, when I got a text from my pal Jason.
“What are you doing right now? I’m at the comic book store across from your place. Big sale. Free pizza. You should come.”
…What comic book store across from my place?!?
There’s an actual comic store across the street from my place? Apparently I have been completely ignoring the COMICS! COMICS! COMICS! sign for months.
New favourite store. I bought a five-pack of the new ROM rebooted series from IDW ($20 for issues 1-5).
On my way out of the store, I ran into a big friendly guy who looked vaguely familiar. “Jonathan”? I asked him, taking a chance. He looked puzzled and answered back, “LeBrain?” Sure enough, it was LeBrain reader and DaveRocks listener JT, who I actually reviewed a Jethro Tull album for by request a little while ago. It was our first actual meeting, but surely not the last, now that I know where he gets his comics!
Lesson: READ SIGNS.
