And I've never seen 2 random comic fans, complete strangers to each other, spark up a conversation either. Even eye contact and a nod is difficult to get. There's almost an aura of shame in the shops I go to; nerd self-loathing. So everyone is quiet as a mouse.
In the record shops I frequent however, it's not hard at all to get a conversation going.
Direct corrolation between the medium collected and a person's social comfort zone?
In another thread, I speculated that there may be a high incidence of Asperger's and other autism spectrum disorders among science fiction fans. The same may be true of comic book fans. I suspect that I have Asperger's and I've had a peripheral interest in both fields for some time.
