If you've spent a significant amount of time in a comic shop -- and especially if you've worked in one -- you've probably overheard some choice sound bites from the people within its walls. We highlighted a few examples in our post on the Our Valued Customers webcomic, which is based on the real comments one man hears every day at at the Massachusetts comic book store where he works. Some of us (myself included) were so enamored with Our Valued Customers that we took the time to read all 200+ installments, and we're hungry for more.

Everyone has their own true tales of comics shop horror, and we want to hear yours
. Tell us something you've overheard in a comic shop in the comments, and you could win a copy of Jim Lee's very attractive DC Comics art book, Icons.Because ComicsAlliance readers are enlightened men and women with opinions and experiences of great worth, we are looking forward to hearing the best things you've overheard in comics stores. They can be funny, sad, offensive, brilliant, depraved -- just not boring. We'll round up the best in a post next week, and the winner will be rewarded with a free copy of Icons: The DC Comics and WildStorm Art of Jim Lee, a handsome hardcover volume that retails for $39.99, a generous preview of which you can see here.

How do you play? Simply leave your anecdote in the form of a comment on this post. We'll do the rest. The contest ends at 12:01 AM on Monday, November 15th. Please click here to read the official rules.
