    On the up side, full credit to the driver for creating an excellent visual metaphor for Marvel and DC editorial practices.

    Damn, that looked like such a nicely organized store too.

    Good think no one was in one of those little aisles on that side of the store.

    Live in the town right next to Huntsville. Was planning to go to that shop a few times. Glad no one got hurt.

    Couldn't even be troubled to just use the door. But, man, the guy behind the counter has clearly been through it all before... he didn't even flinch.

    How great would it have been though if after all that, he'd've stumbled out of his car and up to the counter and gone, "Do... huff-huff... do you have... the latest... the latest issue of...?"

    Funny scene,but the driver of the car had a seizure, so it wasn't like he did it on purpose.

    I know publishers are hoping to drive more traffic into comic shops, but this is ridiculous.

    I know there are sometimes specialty covers you need to be like the first person there in order to get them, but this is excessive.

    Glad nobody got hurt.

    I did get a good chuckle on how they handled the clean-up with a Clerks reference.

    "I assure you we are open." Heh. Want to echo that I'm glad that no one was seriously injured. The store owner may want to invest in anti-vehicle barriers in front of his shop though.
