Pitch art director Zachary Trover gets sad every time he buys comics on a new comic Wednesday. Earlier this week, Zachary was shopping at the B-Bop Comics when a rather large and intense woman demanded several copies of the Barack Obama and Spider-Man Inauguration Day special edition comic book. The shop owner ignored the one per customer sign and let her buy four so she'd go away. Zachary thinks the woman might be banking on the comics being worth a lot of money some day. Uh, not if they're in their third or fourth print.
This woman wasn't the only special person trying to get rich at B-Bop on Wednesday. A man in a NASCAR jacket waited impatiently until the woman had her Obama comics and then asked if the shop keep if he was interested in buying sports cards. Uh, no. On his way out the door, the man in the NASCAR jacket said just loud enough so everyone could hear, "I guess these fags don't like sports."
No wonder why Zachary is sad every Wednesday.
