A little known universe lost in a corner of Midwestern America-- seen from the highway, rarely taken notice of. Within it, a concoction of lifeforms gather on hallowed grounds between walls of epic grandeur to discuss the fate of their worlds-- usually involving robots, lightsabers, superhuman powers, and scantily-clad heroines.
Some may call it simply a comic book shop-- others, a nuisance; still others, Geek Central Station. But this, this is a place of fierce loyalty, harsh judgement, and where you had better buy something instead of standing around all day reading or they'll toss you out on your ear.
Fred: Store Manager

Managing Planet X is no easy task, especially when you're the entire staff. An hour for lunch, closed on Sundays, Fred has been doing this so long he could do it in his sleep-- he actually did once, and even caught three punk kid shoplifters in the process. Fred doesn't read comics, watch TV, and hasn't seen a movie in years. And yet, with all the geekspeak in the store, he doesn't have to bother to. Jaded but friendly, he's a fanboy's best friend for info and getting stuff put away on the side until payday. Truly a hero behind the counter.
Jason: Smooth and confident

But beneath that slick facade lies a fanboy of strong, underdressed heroines and the darker side of comics. He'll only read after the sun goes down-- he doesn't want to be seen reading comics in broad daylight.
More profiles of ambassadors of the planets coming soon.
