Things From Another World has never been my favorite comic shop in Portland. Up until recently, there was poor selection and it was really geared to one very specific mainstream market.
But, the new manager, Mark, is fantastic! He embodies everything a person could want in a comic shop employee. He has ordered a hugh slew of indie and alternative comics, while still maintaining a great selection of mainstream books. Not only does Mark have a wide knowledge of current comics, he also pays attention to what his customers are buying.
For example, I went into the store to get the latest copy of ACME Novelty Library. Mark noticed my selection and made a few other recommendations. Every book he mentioned turned out to be wonderful. The next time I went into the store, he had a list of a few comics he thought I might enjoy.
Sometimes the best part of my week is going into the comic shop and picking up some new material. Mark has made my comic experience 100x better.
