Hey, a girl's got to know her audience! We also stopped in at a local non-comics bookstore and had a late lunch at a Lebanese place downtown.
We have a total of 4 comics shops in town but one really stands head and shoulders above the rest: Secret Headquarters. Think of every stereotype you have about comics shops and then throw out most of them, there you have Secret Headquarters (you know, they do still have comics, longboxes, and gaming stuff, and minis and toys and stuff--otherwise it wouldn't be a comics shop!). It's clean, neat, well-lit and the guy behind the counter--owner, Brian--is always nice and helpful. It also doesn't hurt that when I walk in there I don't feel like I'm intruding into a boys club.
(A note about the title for this month: Fridays have always been our date-night--the one night where I don't work on something, usually, and we spend some quality time together, even if it's just in front of the television. Even though all of this month's strips don't take place on Friday nights, it was a nice way to bundle up the next chapter of our dating story. If you want to refresh your mem0ry of "Chapter 1", start with "Giving it a Try.")

Anyone who comes in this week and mentions this strip gets an extra 10% off!
Bonus discount for Scraps next time, too!
Ooh, really? I was just about to send you this URL! (This is Michelle, btw. I’ve even appeared in the strip before! See?)
Does this mean that anytime we come across this strip we can come down to Tallahassee and find the store and mention the strip and get a discount on our purchases? That would almost make it worth the effort to find the store!
While that certainly would be a nice perk, the rules lawyer in me (I play lawful good on purpose, lol) does have to point out that Brian’s comment was dated Sept 1, 2009, AND said “this week.”
But Brian’s shop is still the best comics shop I’ve been in and one of the few still standing in these tight times–definitely worth finding should you ever be in town!
