The Great Comic Book Adventure, 2011 Edition

Today is an epic day, my friends. An epic, excellent day. As I write this (on the epic counter in my kitchen whilst drinking a not-so-epic cup of decaf), I am mentally preparing myself for a day filled with adventure.

As we do every year at this time, Nathaniel, neko-chan, and I go out on a comic book shop quest so spectacular that it often puts even Indiana Jones' most memorable treks to shame.

It seems like we always end embarking upon this quest on the Thursday of the week between Christmas and New Year's, which works out pretty well. You see, two of the shops we'll likely hit up today are running holiday sales.

This trip truly is epic and destined.

In years past, our Great Comic Book Adventure has taken us to many places and we've faced down many challenges. Like traffic, overcrowded restaurants, and (my) complete lack of a sense of direction.

And today? Well, today Nathaniel may very well come in direct contact with the horrible beast known as sushi. We will see how he fares. Plus, it's pretty cold out there this morning. I might need to wear my heavy coat.

Keep us in your thoughts, Exfanders. Things might get a little dangerous.
