I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want.
If you're looking for comics, I can't tell you for sure I have them, but what I do have are a particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a long career.
Skills that make me a dream for people like you.
I will look for them, I will find them,
and we will talk about them.
Honestly, I love nothing more than seeing all of you in here, talking for hours and hours. So I hope you don't mind me excitedly asking about what you love, and letting you know what I'm into.
Kayleigh started shopping at Graham Crackers in the summer of 2016 and hung around so much she snuck on that black GCC button down shirt and got to work.
She's usually cleaning, organizing, -so if you can't find something she'll most likely know exactly where it is- setting up fancy displays, posting fun stuff on the Edgewater Instagram and playing all that crazy music you hear on Wednesdays. (This photo was from the Claudio Sanchez signing in Lakeview, so you'll probably hear lots of Coheed and Cambria.)
Raised on a steady diet of classic literature (that's right, the kind
with no pictures), Ryan developed a hunger for reading at an early age.
Despite his childhood obsession with Calvin and Hobbes, it wasn't until
college that he bought his first comic book. But oh, how sweet that
first taste was, growing quickly into an insatiable appetite. Cutting
his teeth on the creator-owned series of notable authors, Ryan
eventually made his way into the realm of superheroes. His passion for
music, comics, and unquenchable lust for life can be overwhelming, but
don't be alarmed. It's all out of love. Come and visit him. He likes
making new friends.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering, his last name is pronounced as
if there is no "u". That's right, like the thing you fly.
Edgewater Store Testimonial #1:
We came into your store this morning for Free Comic Book Day and had
such a great experience! The store looked great and the staff was so
friendly and helpful- and I enjoyed chatting with you about the
books and your recommendations! I'm by no means a hardcore comic reader,
but I always enjoy what I do give myself the chance to read. It can be
intimidating to know where to begin - but you were all very
welcoming and helpful. I look forward to visiting much more often!
Looking forward to getting started with that Teen Titan Volume 1 when
it arrives and really excited about Henson's Tale of Sand too! Thanks
again for the suggestions and for taking my name down for those books.
Hope the day was a success - see you again soon!!
