CBH Comic Shop Spotlight #1 - Lambiek

AMSTERDAM, HOLLAND: A recemt (though far from 'current') thread on the Comic Book Haters' forum deals with the topic of funnybook shops, and their various merits and shortcomings. No listeners were contacted for verification, but it seems that all involved agreed it was a "Worthwhile way to kill a little time at work," or at least series Co-Host DJ Sloofus believes it to be so. "Plus, there are a lot of shitty comic book shops out there," he continued. "But it seems like everyone had their own opinion on what makes a good shop, and a fucking shitty-ass one."

One stellar example is Amsterdam's Lambiek. The heritage of the comic, both book and strip, stands proudly along the shelves. A wide selection of European comics are available, of course, and all releases from the major (and minor) independent publishers are given priority. Few super-hero comics (other than those considered 'canon') are available. Also, for some reason, a plethora of pornographic comics are stocked.

Though the shop refused to accept our long distance, reversed-charge, after hours phone calls, their general opinion can easily be fabricated for dramatic purposes. "Heyy, yu vanted to make a vunnybook purchases? Fuck vor Pressident," they would must likely sneer out, whilst twisting their finely-greased moustache.

Schooly is a racist, homophobic fuck with no taste....I'd like to rip his head off and shit down his neck! He's probably a self loathing, trans-sexual who works as a junior high school home economics teacher...he's worse than Cappy and he's bringing the whole show down....please Mr. Sloofus just cut your losses and ditch that fucking pathetic, hate filled loser!

Yours truly,
Ultimate Cappy!

Schooly...we need to talk. It seems some of the fans are upset at your performance. I don't want to mention anything specific, but your integrity has been called into question. Meet me in the Home Economics room when class is over.
