Sam Jones and Colin Turner own the Splash Page, a pretty rad comic shop. They have a new employee, Nate, and Colin’s ex-girlfriend, Mackenzie, is back in town. Everything seems like it’s pretty great. That is, until this week’s new comics don’t show up, and a rival comic book shop opens across the street, and all hell breaks loose.
How could I not enjoy a book like this as a comic fan and all around geek? It’s practically a graphic novel of “a day in the life of comic shop owners”, but with an interesting fictional book twist. I personally appreciated what I felt was a Clerks influence, in both characters and humor. I also like that it does a good job of taking stereotypes from comic fandom but not overdoing it.
It’s too soon to make any overall op...
