The New York Comic Shop

Green Lantern, DC Comics
Overheard this afternoon as I was walking the wall at Midtown Comics in Times Square, picking up my weekly stash:

Tourist: "Wow...we don't have comics like this where I'm from."
Friendly Comic Shop dude: "Where are you from?"
Tourist: "California."
FCSD: "You don't have comics in California?"
Tourist: "We don't have a comic shop like THIS in California."

I'm almost positive there are some pretty amazing, kick-ass comic shops in California, but I would note with pride that Midtown Comics is about as close to the Hub of the Universe for comic geekz as one can get.  And I even bumped into Heidi Klum there one I don't even know how many fanboys heads just exploded.  Only in New York.
