I came to the “Nerd Sanctuary” right around July or August of 2019 after I saw “Into The Spiderverse”, and I never left. The store, the people, and the love of comics and D&D kept me around, and always will (not to mention how quickly Morgan herself became one of my favorite people!). I started off by asking Morgan if I could help clean and test video games, then it moved to repairing what I could and learning how to fix what I didn’t know how to immediately, and I eventually began actually running the front a few days a week, taking inventory, and helping price Pokemon cards.
It’s funny, because in 2017 I actually came here for a coloring book night and never thought anything else of it. A photo was taken of us though, me and my friends, and right there in the background was Morgan. I don’t think either of us expected that now, in October of 2020, this store would’ve grown to mean so much to me.
My collection of nerdy objects has grown and continues to grow; all comics with Spider-Man that have begun since I started coming here, and many back issues as well, along with Pop figures, action figures, and vintage video games. Don’t get it wrong though; I love more than just our favorite web slinger. Feel free to chat me up about Supernatural, Avatar: The Last Airbender or Stranger Things any day!
The store and Morgan gave me a place where I fit right in, and I’ve never been happier.
I’ll always be around to lend a hand in any way I can, whether it’s testing games, working on Pokemon cards, or finding new ways to help ourselves and our nerd family to access all things nerdy more easily!
