The Darkest of Fridays.
Thor seems pretty on point here. The day of this post is the legendary Black Friday…replete with Epic Deals and Doorbusters. Clearly, a day that needs legendary support, even if our hero is barred from setting foot in Asgard.
Still…on this, the darkest of Fridays in Midgard, I will be making a guest appearance in Pulp Fiction of Culver City. Stop by to say hi, or to get something for the Comic Book Fan in your life…even if that fan is you. As is typical, Pulp Fiction features deep discounts on Marvel and DC trade paperbacks, and has a pretty solid inventory of comics and TPBs on the showroom floor. My “guest appearance” was a bit last minute, but I’m always happy to be there.
Normally…I avoid retail like it was made of Evil on Black Friday…but in this case, it seems okay. Certainly, after some of the pretense of Thanksgiving itself, the rampant consumerism of Black Friday seems honest in a way that would satisfy even the Mighty Thor, or at least his/her hammer.
