Yeah, but you totally wanted to put your two cents into the conversation.

For Shame!

maybe it was teh stereotypical high pitched lithpy tone of the one behind the counter....

or the fact that he was ignoring me in favor of his riviting conversation.....

but jesus chirst i was like "fuckign GEEKS!!!"

it probably has moer to do with the fact that, though everyoen knows i'm a geek, i don;t fly me geek flag at full mast 24/7

I am confused about what was wrong with the conversation. Are you saying Moonknight can actually carry his own book?

Yeah personally I don't believe he merits that.

LOL, this hits close to home, because it is how I feel about my profession. Fucking hate the lot of them, including myself.

But, dude, Moonknight cannot carry his own book. Kway and BigW are totally correct.

i sometimes feel that way when i go to midtown comics, arguably one of the biggest online comics shops... i literally work right across the street.

sometimes i pop in (cos if i go in i will be tempted to buy a lot and i cannot/shouldn't spend money on comics and related stuff) just to see the new books and tpb's. and the clerks would get real in-depth geeky on something and you realize sometimes it's cool to be a geek, but sometimes it's not.

i think if you are a geek (my definition is you are cool and not a nerd who is book smart and has no personality, and you are geeky about specific subjects/interests) amongst geeks who are not into your interest - it's cool cos you will be the go-to guy for that speciffic area.

but then again, it's cool to get together with other geeks to discuss some same subject. i know i come here mainly for the rob liefeld art love. i can't get that at work.

Moonknight is stupid. He's like a weak version of Sentry or a crazier Batman that wears white (boring.)

It was in a comic shop. How could any subject be in a more appropriate place? It's not like they were in a bar.

On a side note, in the Moon Knight series after the death of Marc Spector, the series was fantastic up until Shadowlands. Bendis' recent series was blah.

Those guys just alpha geeked all up on you.

You should have just shut them down by popping in and spitting venom.

Seriously though, I haven't been in a comic store for like 4 years but I agree some of these comic fans are too damn nerdy. Not geeks IMO.

They're on some real life big bang theory personas without being particularly intelligent. The Simpsons comic book store guy. Phone Post

I must say I hate geek culture myself. I just like reading comics. No one ever gave me a wedgie and cosplayers make me ill. If I want to be around a bunch of insular weirdos, I'll go to NAGA. The geek world and I have always had an uneasy relationship. Phone Post
