Quote Of The Week
"We sell a lot of Captain America and Thor because of the girls who like the movies. Guys don’t buy them as much now. They buy X-Men and Avengers. Oh, except, Incredible Hulk, that sells well, brown people love it." -- a comic shop employee as described in a review of a comics retail shop. I have no idea if it's true or not, or how true it is if true, but that is one depressing review. (via)
