Some of my Weekend Highlights
"So, it didn't take long for people to start ripping off Sin City, huh?"
What do you mean?
"That Quit City book! Man, what a rip-off of Sin City!"
How, precisely? There is nothing similar about either the art or the story.
"Uhm...they both have the word City in the title."
"Can you help me find a certain manga title. I looked on your manga shelves but I didn't see it. I don't remember the exact name, but I know they run it in Shonen Jump."
Well, if it's a Shonen Jump title, I probably keep it in this section over here with the more kid-orientated manga titles, instead of in the regular manga section.
"What! How dare you imply that Shonen Jump is for children!"
"Do you have any comics with the Joker?"
Sure, lots. Was there a specific Joker story you were looking for?
"Do you have the first appearance of the Joker?"
Well, no, I don't have the first issue of Batman, but I may have a reprint of it.
"I don't want a reprint. Can't you order the first issue of Batman for me?"
No, I can't really order anything that's been out of print for sixty-five years.
And then there was the guy who was looking through our poster displays, naming each character on each poster. Well, except the female characters. He just made little "kissy-kissy" noises for each of them.
