As Nerdvana alumnus Chris “KeL” Adams wrote in January, Valley comic book chain Atomic Comics is featured heavily in the upcoming superhero movie Kick-Ass, adapted from the comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.
On the store’s official blog, owner Mike Malve describes how that sweet name placement came about:
Most people will just attribute the fact that I sold my soul to Mark Millar for that privilege. But the truth is that I have been friends with Mark for years and a big supporter of all his past comic works. Mark has always treated his friends well and gave me one of the best gifts I could ever receive. He’s always been great to comic retailers as he promotes comic shops and names of people he knows in his books.
