The Fantastic Foursome of Comic Book Clerks Pushing Pop Culture.


COMIC BOOKS have been synonymous with POP CULTURE since first hitting newsstands in the thirties and their popularity has exploded over recent decades as the medium's mythos comes to life in a variety of new ways. Tens of millions of comics are sold in the US, grossing hundreds of millions of dollars domestically each year.

Loyal fans have immersed themselves in the universe of comic books, their respective movie and television adaptations, and much of what's what in pop culture for generations. From Captain America, Green Lantern, and Kick Ass blazing onto the big screen to Smallville, The Big Bang Theory, Chuck and The Walking Dead bringing in reliable ratings on the small screen, comic book (or so-called "nerd") culture has a firm grip on all things mainstream.

Now, imagine hanging out with four crazy comic book clerks at a store that is on its way to becoming the best comic shop in the world. That's exactly what's happening at A Comic Shop in Orlando, Florida. Yep, that's its name -- A COMIC SHOP.

It's an epic business that's been nominated for an Eisner Award (equivalent to the Oscars for comics) for the best comic shop in the world. A Comic Shop is doing what no other comic retailer in the world is doing...giving their customers an experience in mainstream counter culture by pimping entertainment in numerous ways such as hosting huge events in their nerd lounge (dubbed the Geek Easy), curbside concerts, after hours parties with iconic industry creators, sexy photo shoots and midnight release parties with beer, geeks, comics, and conflict.

This all may sound like any fanboy's wet dream -- but these aren't your average comic book retailers. Like Superman and Lex Luthor, owners Jason Blanchard and Aaron Haaland are constantly at each other's throats while their sidekicks, Mike Pandel and Eric Punzone, sell comics and push pop culture to customers and the surrounding college community.

Together, they are turning heads in the industry with innovations earning them world wide recognition. They do this for the customers who love them, even when Mike gropes them or Eric flirts with them or Aaron insults them or Jason annoys the $#!+ out of them...this fantastic foursome are STORE FRONT SUPER HEROES.
