He is basically the Comic book guy from the Simpson's Long hair beard, He has a little Shit zu that could be laying anywhere in the store...so you have to avoid stepping on him. It's a pretty big store so there are 5 or 6 guys. What I hate though is that I know more about the comics coming out than they do......ComicVine has made me too smart. But the owner is this guy:

"Hello, Nick...X-force is a good one. There is a new X title that you might like...oh don't forget you wanted to get War of Kings.

Mine are idiots who know hardly anything about the comics. Their people skills are... well lets just say lacking. I know of parents who avoid those shops like the plague because of how horrible and ...strange they are. Glad one of them closed down, maybe the other will get the picture.

I moved so now i have a new one. He's dangerously tall and quite attractive and tried to get me not to buy X-Men: Pixie Strikes Back. Deal Breaker.
 
Btw, the shop doubles as a place to play Dungeons and Dragons as well as other types of those games.

I just realized that the owner of the local comic store looks exactly like Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons. Except that he wears a backwards cap.

My comic book guy is a gay little, middle eastern men, with short black hair and sparkly aring eyes, who used to do some tv and is fun AND funny as hell. He's very cool.

I don't really have one. I buy from a store that has long since turned into a music and offbeat store. Like designer toys and such.

Mine is actually a woman, who's really cool and really nice, who usually likes to talk to me about The Walking Dead.
