Comic Book shop Shenanigans

Ok yesterday was new comic release day. I thought I was going to have a good day. Get the books I read and just be easy. The shop I go to is run by overall some decent guys and a few I consider a friend. Now I have been going there for 4 years since I moved to Fl. I have always had a good camaraderie with the guys and usually have no issue with my books. At least nothing too major.

R/I Cover I could not find the Nick Runge.
I am subscribed to  the new GHOSTBUSTERS monthly. I also usually get the cover by Nick Runge because Dapper Dan does the interiors and though he is awesome I want to be able to support both guys who are members of GBFANS.com by the way if you have a love of Ghostbusters then GBFans is the site to go. The guys are awesome and everyone just loves helping each other out. So anyway new copy release and someone put the "Dapper" cover in my sub box. So I asked why I received this cover and not the other. Someone who had started helping at the shop said "Well only one copy came in of the cover you get and it had a bent corner so I took it considering I get all covers." No Lie this is what was told to me.

Most people that know me that if you say something idiotic I am going to call you out on it. So I said to the individual who I have no problem with personally but he just royally pissed me off here. I said that as a person who "works" here you can wait over the people who come in weekly for their books that they are expecting. I also brought up the fact that I know what working let alone running a comic shop consists of and he can not go over on me with this. The customer comes first. He comes back at me that he is a customer and I do not know how many books he buys completely getting off topic. At the end of the conversation I explained to him that if he can be behind the counter taking a person's money for their books then he is no longer just a customer and he needs to see it as that and he does not "Come first." 

At the end of all this he walked away and said he did not need to talk about this and stormed into the back office. OF course he continued to whisper back and forth not only with one of the owners but just the guys that were there. 

Was I wrong to say what I said?? Curious to know what your opinions on this. 

Anyway end of this I spoke with the owner after he saw my facebook status and I basically told him why I felt the way I felt. 


On the game front though the big news yesterday was the leaked news of God of War:Ascension. That is some big news and it is release not on Next Gen but on PS3. That should be awesome.

Hope you guys like the video and give me your thoughts on it.

I also have 3 Ghost Recon:Future Soldier Closed Beta Codes. I will give them away to anyone who subscribes to my blog and leave me a comment. Mind you these are first come first serve.
