Running a comic-book store is a tough, lonely job. You have to help people find the perfect comics for their individual taste, and also deal with a certain amount of obnoxious customers. So let’s salute some of the greatest heroes in comics: Tell us your story of a heroic comic-store worker!

You don’t have to mention the name of the store (although you’re welcome to) and details can be kept anonymous. But please share your stories (that you or your friends witnessed firsthand) of comics-store employees being awesome or just especially helpful. Bonus points if you’re a comic-store worker yourself and want to talk about your excellent colleagues!
