And knowing is half the battle

Just in case you ever find yourself in Providence, R.I., and you happen to find a place with "Comics" in the actual name of the business — IT'S A LIE. Seriously, it's like a Spenser's, a Hot Topic and an FYE had some sort of bizarre three-way and gave birth to this "comic book" store.

If you're looking for CDs, DVDs, posters, tchotchkes, T-shirts, toys, backpacks or magnets for this guy, you'll be in the right place — otherwise, nose around in a lonely corner of the store and you'll be lucky to find a teeny-tiny selection from the week's comics. But probably not the one you're looking for.

And now you know.

I prove things ... with maths!

Geez, I HATE false advertising. HATE it!

Ugh, me too. I think what especially annoyed me was it was a BIG store called "Such-and-such Comics," but the more I walked around the more obvious it became it wasn't really a comic book store. Bah.
