My wife is wonderful. She's one of the people who has changed my life around... or has allowed ME to change my life around.
On the whole, and this comment can get me in a lot of trouble, I find that retailers in the comic book business are not business people. They're fans who've gotten themselves shops.
The people that are running the bulk of the comic shops in North America aren't business people and they don't understand sales. They don't understand good product.
The violence in society, I'm afraid, is perpetrated by the people at the top.
