    A lot of this depends on what comic store you go to. In the larger metropolitan shops, I don't really get that "squicky" feeling of being singled out or stared at too much, because there is a relatively higher percentage of women there & it's not a big deal. With some of the smaller places I get the "squick." I also find that the owner of the shop will really set the stage as to how females are treated there.

      College stores, too. But beware of stores run by guys who look like they'd rather be playing D&D. Even if you would, too.

    At the really good comic shops, the hot girls are working behind the counter.

      My daughter thanks you for the compliment.

        Your daughter's a lovely young woman, but not my type. She's a bit too– what's the phrase I'm looking for here? Oh, yeah: related to you.

            Certainly color-covered, at the very least.Adriane, it's not you, it's m– no, wait, it's not me. It's him. (Okay, him and my wife. But mostly him.)
