Cast and crew Bios:

MIKE (Justin Tyler) is a nice guy who loves old comics. Managing the store for several years, he pretends to hate the store, staff, and the regulars, however they are a large part of his life and he wouldn't trade them for anything.

KAITLIN, (KIrstan Perry) the senior manager of the store is a bit of a domineering control freak with a tendency to get on everyone’s nerves.  Although perceived by the stores regulars as a kind of disapproving parental figure, she is actually secretly proud that they have made the store their unofficial club house.

GINGER (Julie KAtz) is the cool, knockout at the store who also sidelines as a slash everything: writer, band member, bartender.  She tries hard to feign apathy towards her status as the store’s resident hottie, but she’s covertly obsessed with being cool and the indie boy regulars who think she’s the hottest thing since fire. 

DENNIS (Pedro Lee) dreams of making it as the next big Marvel artist and serves as the store’s artist and hip-hop aficionado.  He’s a little too friendly with the regulars and is more likely to join in on their shenanigans than discourage them.

BERNARD, (Walter X) a brand manager and web architect, is an uber cool nerd who has been coming to the store since he first arrived in NY for college.  He’s the good natured ring leader of the regulars and will do anything for them and the staff whom he considers family.

TAYLOR (Johnathan Fernandez) is the youngest of the group, but he is also a bona fide genius having graduated from college at 16. Despite his intelligence he’s a little awkward, and his perception of social interactions often leads to him speaking before his thoughts have been properly filtered. 

JEREMY (Davram x) is your mid-twenties, comic-obsessed, unemployed, still-lives-with-his-mother "by choice damnit" comic book store main stay.  He pulls often crazy antics which are really more funny than mean spirited, and refuses to get a real job, instead banking on a series of ridiculous “get rich quick” schemes.

BATEMAN, (Aaron X) who does well for himself working in finance, is as crude as he is crass.  He uses the store as a kind of escapism from MRS. BATEMAN (Katie johnson) his tight-reigned, overbearing, lawyer wife who sees his affiliation with the store and its regulars as a distraction.  He often acts out and instigates trouble at the store.  

MACKENZIE aka Mac and cheese, (Christina Calph) is a physical trainer, is the group's personal cheerleader, always supporting the regulars in whatever goals they have.  She is obsessed with super heroes and wants to learn as much as she can about them, and while she can be a bit gullible, she is clever in her own way.

KAYLA (SHANNON COFFEY) a grad student and resident otaku, works as a research assistant, and while she appears calm and shy on the outside, underneath she is an incredibly passionate, vivacious person.  Her laid back personality makes her a bit passive aggressive and sarcastic, but through it all she is a sweetheart.

JANE (JILL BUTTERFIELD) is a professional speaker and business coach who enjoys using analogues from comics to give the super hero perspective to her business clientele.  She’s good natured, helpful, and a bit of a goofball, but she can also be a bit cocky and smug at times.
