Forum member and friend, Inazuma Tiger (a.k.a. Adrian), is an Atlanta resident like us and Dwight and I hit him up to join us for a little roundtable chit-chat. He used to work for a local comic shop called The Comic Company and many of the geeks in our circle used to frequent that fine establishment. It was a fun place and Dick Schwartz, the man who owned and operated it, was a good guy. Dick has since retired, closed Comic Company, and somehow, someway we ran into Adrian several years later—on our msg board! How's that for serendipity!
So who knows? Maybe the whole comic shop connection explains why the three of us ended up meeting at Titan Games & Comics in Duluth, which is north of the city. I've been a Titan customer since I was sixteen, have a pretty good rapport with all the managers (Chuck and Mike especially) and gave 'em a call to see what the haps. Beth was there that day, said no problemo, as long as she could be out the door by 7PM. We said cool and it was on!
Our conversation took place right by the front door of the store, but surprisingly, it wasn't that noisy. Eric was there too helping Beth run things, and he and she both jump in from time to time.
We nerded out for about 90 minutes that night and had an awesome time doing it! Many thanks to Beth and Eric for graciously allowing us to hang out. Titan is great and if you're ever in their neck of the woods—spend lots of money!
