The hipster shop has employed a new technique, they have hired a stunning blonde to smile seductively at you as she rings you up. Apparently she reads comics too, but I suspect this is just a ruse.


Do you live in Columbus? If so I know the blonde and it's true.

I liked the original Speedy a lot, and his drug problem was handled well during the Perez years. But this is just awful and nonsensical.

Bullet to the Head #1

Well, I made it about a half a dozen pages into this. The first few pages read exactly like a bad deleted scene from Pulp Fiction. Before I got halfway through the book, the hitmen had shot 2 dogs in two different scenes and I threw the book away. I'm sorry, I don't expect any of you to understand, it's a personal thing with me, I am sick of that being used in comics these days. Having said that, I give the book a zero.

We all got a good laugh at it being called a hipster place.

For all the hipsterish shit in Columbus, I would not consider the Ogre one of them.

Heh, that's really just because they carry all the indie books. It started as a joke about those books being for hipsters a while back I think when that one guy made fun of me for buying Image United, that's all. So whenever they didn't have stuff at my local place I'd say I was going to the hipster LCS. It really just means they have a good selection.

If that gets you hard, I have 5 years of memories of animal rescue and dogs who were shot, stabbed, beat with rocks, hit by cars, set on fire, starved to death, etc I would gladly let you have.
