When we opened the new store, we finally sold out of the damn ones we had. They sell for shit. Actually, the bio books are the most frustrating things in the world, just like the Who Wants to be a Super Hero? Comics were. After you have ordered them and before they come out, people ask about (some of) them relentlessly. Then when they come out they collect dust. Then three months later, (some of) them have people asking about them relentlessly. Some make sense like the Michael Jackson, Rowling, etc. But some not so much and it is a crap shoot which ones sell and which ones don't.

When I head over there in a couple of hours, I'll let you know. Thanks!

Yeah, who knows, that one copy may still be there. Kind of a crap week for me, not much I'm interested in.

I always thought Eric worked in a comic shop, or at least lived in an alley behind one. :?

His real life inspired comic strip adventures always had him outside of a shop. I assumed the same thing.
