No Kookamooka, It is definitely the store branded by the design of alternating red and white concentric circles. "The Great Sale Event" is the kicker, they are shooting to take sales from other stores.

Whoops, I used the word shooting. Damn me.

There are other big box stores out there besides evil Walmart.

I'm with Pywacket. That is definately Hastings. I actually own a graphic novel of Pride and Prejudice. I also think the graphic novel has alot of potential. It's basically like reading the storyboard for a movie. It's a more sophisticated version of a comic but doesn't leave much to the readers imagination.

Just The Turner Diaries. Hey, I just saw somewhere else that Speedway Shell is closed. True? I don't get out much so I don't know. But it was the best spot for the OTS question, with DEA UFO Chasers and people like that.

jonas, pywacket, Hollis is correct. Behind Mr. Ben is the electronics section of the store which must not be named because said name and or logo/trademark may incite some goat fornicator to do something bad. Plus, it is Sarah Palin's favorite store, just down the road from her place.
I am surprised that they use the name "Borders" when they ask the question there, with immigration issues being such a hot topic when they ask the question there.

Watchmen was good. Won some major literary award (Hugo?) and they changed the rules afterwards to make sure no other comics (graphic novels!) could win again. Read some other comics as a kid, but they always cost too much to make a hobby out of it.

I, too, would guess Hastings.

If the LJW wanted to dig deeper, they could track down Jai Nitz...local boy done good in the comic book biz.

Is that Hastings? Just a guess.

I don't read a lot of them, but of the ones I have read, one of my favorites is "Maus," by Art Spiegelman. I would also note that Spiegelman objects to the term "graphic novel," preferring the more accurate (as he says) term "comics."

I like the fact that he is so unpretentious and down-to-earth and I sadly suspect that some of the readers of "graphic novels" would consider themselves too adult and sophisticated to read the publications if they were all called "comics."

As an unapologetic comics fiend, I don't care what they're called as long as they are interesting and funny. If they connect on some deeper level (as "Maus" certainly does), that's one more level of enjoyment.

Reading is fine, but it is nothing compared to watching thespians...

I read about three books a month. Never been a graph in one of them.

But, however, I have watched "Painkiller Jane".

This morning I informed one of my male devil spawn that "titular" has nothing to do with boobies.

Life can be pretty graphic.

Happy Birthday to the beer can. 76, 20 more years and you can outlive Jack LaLanne.

Years ago I punctured my eardrum. If I plugged my nose I could actually blow smoke out of my ear.

My five year old grand daughter told me that if you stick your fingers in your nose that you can breathe through your eyes...but Pappa, you have to put you glasses on to see the air.....

That is about as graphic as it gets around here anymore.

No. I'm minding my P's and Q's, all because of a W. I'm as giddy as a schoolboy. I've got butterflies in my stomach.

I find most graphs very boring. They're not very novel ideas.

"graphic" means ...what?

they mean with illustrations? lolz! or do they mean with graphic violence?
graphic sex? graphic language?

me, I'd rather read a GUI novel, it's messier.

and labmonkey was first instead of kulaw, hurrah!

I read comic books when I was a kid. Read some manga a few years back just to see what it was all about. I'm a big fan of Neil Gaiman and he likes to do the occasional graphic short story. He got into it by writing comics back in the '80's.
