Works at Dinosaur Comics Lives in Toronto TOTALLY MARRIED Speaks all of the languages ever Born on October 20th

Hello Ryan, I wanted to share a quick story that totally just happened a few  minuets ago. I was in the comic shop picking up my new issue of “Huntress” and I  decided to grab a copy of “Adventure Time” #1 for me and my sister,  and I was in luck because there were only 2 copies left! Well as I  was browsing a woman and her young son came into the shop and she  approached the register explaining that her son was interested in  reading comics, and requested some help identifying the “kids books”.
The shop keeper took them to the back where he keeps a rack of comics  based on cartoons and video games and began rattling off the typical  favorites: Sonic, Ninja Turtles, Mega Man…The young boy was clearly  overwelmed and beyond excited, but obviously dismissive of the  suggestions, and I having been a fan of Dinosaur comics for about  four years now knew full well that I held something special in my  hands. I looked down (he was about as tall as my leg) and asked “do  you like Adventure Time?”
Well Mr.North to say that this boy was  excited is an understatement boardering on farce, I didnt have to  wait for his response before handing him one of your books, the sight  of which sent him over the edge “I DIDNT EVEN KNOW THEY MADE THAT!” he  exclaimed, “I KNOW IT JUST CAME OUT TODAY!!” I responded, his mother  and the shopkeeper looking on befuddled at a twenty nine year old  man, and a six year old boy sharing a moment of bliss, unabashed in  that comfortable safe zone comic shops seem to create.
The mother  encouraged the boy to look around some more but he’d have none of it,  and as I was leaving I overheard her explain to the shop keeper that  this was her sons’ first comic, to which he responded by giving him a  bag and a board suggesting that after he reads his new book he  preserve it as a memento to look back on in 20 or 30 years. I was so  proud and delighted to play some small part in creating a truly  memorable experience that I thought it only fair to pass the story on.
Thanks for giving a young fan a great start, and reminding an old one  why comics are so much fun!

You guys, this is awesome

Hello Ryan,

I wanted to share a quick story that totally just happened a few minuets ago.

I was in the comic shop picking up my new issue of “Huntress” and I decided to grab a copy of “Adventure Time” #1 for me and my sister, and I was in luck because there were only 2 copies left!

I looked down (he was about as tall as my leg) and asked “do you like Adventure Time?”
