We Interrupt This Blog For Yet Another Shameless Plug: Princessitude!

Greetings comic fans!   I promise to get back to "How On Krypton Did I Get Here" soon, but in the meantime I wanted to brag a little about Princessitude!, our line of merchandise for princesses of all ages.
   A little while back, just before all sorts of personal roadblocks distracted me from this blog, CafePress featured our Princessitude! store in its Shopkeeper Spotlight. Here's the link:

   We'd love for you to take a moment and have a look, and while your at it, check out all the new designs at our Princessitude! store.
   One more plug: the good folks at unbrokenDial Productions have been filming a comedy web series at The Comics Club's retail store in Brandon, Florida. It has been a pleasure being the setting for this very fun and funny show about a young man's nerdy journey to find true love. Episode 1 - Elephantman, is up and running on Youtube, so please have a look. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/user/unbrokenDIAL. New episodes air every Wednesdays.
   Next time in "Pusher", I'm proud to feature Richard Lee Byers as my very special guest blogger. Mr. Byers is a lifelong comics fan, a good friend of The Comics Club, and the author of more than thirty fantasy and horror novels, , including a number set in the "Forgotten Realms" universe and the X-Men novel "Soul Killer". His short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies. Look for his guest blog here, Monday, May 16th.

Happy trails,

We Interrupt This Blog For A Burst of Cranial Flurry . . .

By The Comic Book Pusher
A customer came in the store a few minutes ago and asked for current-size comic book bags and boards. Not only do we carry a wide variety of collecting supplies, we happen to be having a sale on those items right now. I told him he could save more in the long run by buying two, because the third one would be free.     "I really don't need that many," he said blandly.     "Ah, but you will eventually need them," I said enthusiastically, "and you'll have saved yourself a lot of money in the long run," I encouraged.    "Wow," he said, rather deadpan. There was a flavor of apathy in his tone. "That's a good deal, but I'm actually cutting back on comics and trimming down my collection." Bam! Pow! The sudden, unexpected assault on my capitalistic senses slammed me in the hip, right around the wallet region. I began to feel a little dizzy.    "Cutting back"? "Trimming down"? I could hear …

As fans know, this has often been a crucial story element in the comic. I was bemused, though, that Thor starts out reckless, immature, and irresponsible while Odin is compassionate and wise throughout (although his wisdom doesn’t keep Loki from getting up to shenanigans.) Don’t get me wrong; in the movie, this works great. In the comics, though, it’s often been Thor who’s noble and Odin who’s a douche bag, arrogant, blind, and impossible to please, perpetually pissed off that his son loves a mort…

How on Krypton Did I Get Here? Part Four: A Merchant Prince is Born

By The Comics Book Pusher
The idea that certain comic books had gained some considerable monetary value to them over the years reignited my interest and brought me back into the wonderful world of comics. This time not just for the entertainment value, although I was very much enjoying reading them again, but for a new purpose that excited the capitalist in me -- profit.
   "How do you know how much a comic book is worth?" I asked the young man behind the folding card table that served as the comic book store's checkout counter. He suggested The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, by Robert M. Overstreet. "Great! Do you have it?" I ventured further. "Nope. Out of stock," he replied from behind his comic book. "Can you order it for me?" I inquired. "No, but bookstores have them," he offered. I thanked him, headed over to the bookstore at the mall where I purchased a copy of the new 1987 edition of the Overstreet. When I got home, I read it …
