Secret Lives of Comic Store Employees

Secret Lives of Comic Store Employees

Superman has Clark Kent. Spider-Man has Peter Parker. But it’s not just superheroes who have secret identities. Wired.com’s new “Secret Lives” series looks at individuals you encounter every day and reveals a side of them you normally wouldn’t see.
What better profession to begin with than the comic store employee? And what better time to start than now, as the WonderCon comic convention invades San Francisco this weekend?
From the sassy princess of underground comics to the pajama-wearing ex-convict, your local pulp-pushers are anything but ordinary. We’ve profiled nine comic crusaders, five from New York and four from the San Francisco Bay Area, photographing them in their shops and at home. We asked each employee roughly the same questions, and their responses are published alongside their photos.
