New Comic Emporium FAQ Entry

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Q.  Gosh you live the good life, hanging out in a comic shop all day and raking in the bucks! How do I go about opening my own shop?

A.¬† First of all you have to be willing to give up a few luxuries in life like minimum wage, paid overtime, paid vacations, insurance, retirement, a social life, family, and a good deal of self respect. Secondly you must be able to survive for months on zero income (A taste for ramen noodles comes in handy here). The right attitude is important; preferably you are lazy and whine a lot making it virtually impossible to hold down a real job. You must be self-reliant¬† and enjoy your own company because your family and friends will begin avoiding you after you’ve borrowed their last nickel. Owing to the fact that you are lazy and whine a lot and are unable to hold down a real job for any length of time, it is highly unlikely that your credit score is adequate to secure the $75,000 – $100,000 needed to keep your shop open for those first 3 or 4 years. Therefore it is absolutely necessary to find a nice couple of geeks (albeit with a respectable amount of credit available) who are crazy … er, motivated enough to jump into a sinking ship with you and start bailing. If you meet all of these criteria, then in no time at all you should be enjoying the sweet fruits of entrepreneurship: toilet and ashtray cleaning, 80+ hour work weeks for $2.20 per hour, dealing with publishers, distributors, and shippers who have dedicated their lives and careers to putting you out of business, cleaning bootleg pizza out of the carpet (smuggled in under a spider-man hoodie because outside food is strictly forbidden), and countless hours of listening to other geeks talk about their D&D characters. If you are fortunate and blessed enough to find yourself still pursuing this madness after 11 years, then get down on your knees and thank God and your customers for keeping the lights on and the doors open and for allowing you to enjoy what is honestly and quite seriously, the best job in the world. Thank you, guys! :)
