Shop for comics somewhere else; believe me!!!!
Al, propriotor of ""Al's Comics"", personally delivered the absolute worst experience I've ever had in any store. At first (when he first started getting in my face and yelling) I was kind of thinking it was a joke, playing on the stereotype of the ""comic book guy"". No, he was serious. I love going into a store to ask a simple question and within a minute being verbally attacked unlike anything else I've ever experienced.
Stay away from this guy. Don't even walk in the door unless you want to take a chance on having to deal with the most annoying and unfriendly person currently walking this Earth. Yea, there are some guys that are kind of rude, but have a certain mitigating charm. Not Al. I used to live right across the street from his old place on Guerrero, and contributed money towards his relocation (and you may notice, over a year later and he's still begging for donations). I told him this while he's screaming at me (just for asking a simple question) and he didn't care at all!! You're welcome. Can't wait to help you out in the future.
Anybody that spends even a single penny at Al's is just endorsing his appalling, rude, and obnoxious behavior. There are many other similar stores that are actually fun to shop in; give those stores your business.
Stay far away!!!!! This guy encapsulates everything that is annoying in human beings.
