It’s a bit of a commute for me but I liked it so much I got a job there! I only work a few days a month right now tho. Alex is the manager and he is a super cool fun dude, if we don’t have something in stock our other store might and we can get it sent to us pretty quickly. There are also Justin and Tony.
If you’re looking for a place to open subscriptions its awesome because this place you can edit your list online with now hassle and if they pull or suggest something and you don’t want it, its really no pressure. They can take no for an answer :)
I’m totally biased and I love this place but my sister lived here way before me and went to a ton of stores in LA and is willing to go out of the way for this one just because they are way more welcoming to people than some stores.
Thank you, for being totally awesome and doing your frequently asked asks page thingy. I have no comic shops where I live, and I'm new to comics, and thanks to you I found midtown comics, and I am one happy girl :)
Aw honey you’re super welcome! I live to serve at the pleasure of the nerd community :)
Yo, I just wanna say I understand your viewpoint, and the view points of others. It's a totally valid view point to have on the Leto matter. And yeah, it is unfortunately a WIDE RANGE of people that fall into that "thank you". Obviously it doesn't amend things and I'm not asking you at all to remove the post. I had just wanted to know what you thought of his statement/ if you knew about that part. Thank you for being strong in your beliefs but still respectful- prior Anon about Leto stuff
Hey duders it’s totally cool, thank YOU for your very respectful reply :) I learned way back in my tumblr baby days that screaming at anons gets you nowhere. Stick to your guns. Don’t run with scissors. etc.
I understand that Leto has some fans out there, and that’s great, that doesn’t have any impact on my life whatsoever. I have a lot of problems with Dallas Buyer’s Club, a lot of which are personal, and it breaks my heart to see something like his portrayal lauded and defended.
But thank you for your very chill response, it was hella respectful and you are a-okay in my book, anon!
"To everyone in the world who felt injustice for being who you are and who you love. And I stand here in front of the world for you and with you." Actually he did say a thank you. Not meaning to start a confrontation. I never saw Leto's movie, I'm not a fan &I don't know anything about the role except what I've read (which is a lot of angry posts--not saying the thing you reblogged was angry, absolutely not). But that was a portion of his speech, and I feel like a lot of people missed that bit.
Okay so I’ve gotten, approximately, a shit-ton of these since reblogging that text post. And you’re right, he did thank what is sadly a massive group of people. But I’m not going to delete the post, and I’m not going to amend it. The problems with the movie he starred in do not begin nor end with his acceptance speech.
I would delete it if he had specifically mentioned transwomen.
I would delete it if he went back in time and said ‘No, I’m sorry, as a cis-gendered male I cannot take this role, here is a list of many, many incredibly talented transfemale actresses that can do this character more justice than I can.’
