We geeks are a peculiar crowd. We are passionate. We are deeply involved. We sometimes, maybe often, sound like absolute idiots. Jerks, even, if I may use such crass language. Yes, as a geek, I find myself angry NOT at people who don’t share my passions, but most of the time angry at the geek across the back issue bin from me. Angry, or mystified, or pitying, or just plain gob-smacked. There are certain members of our illustrious order of pop culture consumers that shouldn’t be allowed out of their proverbial mom’s basement.
But if they didn’t open their mouths and excrete mind farts from said orifice, then Our Valued Customers wouldn’t exist. And that would be an ever bigger shame.
Our Valued Customers is a collection of one panel comics that depict snippets of overheard conversations in a comic store located in Somewhere, USA. (No, that is not a real town, but nobody needs to get fired IRL, now do they?) Drawn by “MRTIM!”, these caricatures capture each perpetrator of non-thought crime perfectly. What they said, and how they look… well, I’ve met them. If you have spent more than 8 minutes in a comic shop, then you’ve met them, too. I’m sure of it. Some how, some way. Their double goes to my shop and thinks these thoughts, and says these words.
The first collection of Our Valued Customers is for sale on Amazon. I bought it. I loved it. If you buy it, you’ll love it, too.
There, I did my pitch. Now here’s a few sample comics just cuz they be funny, yo!
And don’t worry, kids, MRTIM! has many, MANY, many, many, many, many more archived comics. SO MANY. Enjoy!
