Hello! Welcome to the Atomic Junk Shop! We’re your friendly proprietors. Think of us as the bookshop owner that can trace the history of a genre, a record shop clerk that can point out the influences of your favorite bands, the person at the comic store register that can tell you all about the run of comics that you’re sure to love based on what’s in your pull box.
Feel free to rummage around and see what we have to offer you. While we came together through a mutual love of comics, our tastes are varied and eclectic. You’ll see our latest acquisitions there in the display window. There’s a spinner rack over there with pulps and comics and paperbacks. In that corner, we have old movie posters and toy robots. OK, not really, this is just virtual space on a blog that isn’t selling anything, but use your imagination! You know, the thing that gets fired up by this stuff, and pretend!
Basically, we’re here to discuss anything that a teacher or librarian used to frown upon, or a jock would give you a wedgie for liking, or that your parents would tsk tsk with disapproval for your interest in it.
We’re not opposed to the flood of the new, but we do wish to take the time to stop and appreciate the junk culture foundation that modern nerd fandom is based on. You’ll find the old and the new and the forgotten and the unearthed here at the Atomic Junk Shop.
Stay awhile, browse all you like at what we’re discussing, and if you have anything you’d like to contribute, feel free to get in touch!
