Feel free to e-mail all Chicago Loop related inquiries to:
Earl Geier - Manager
Manager Earl Geier thinks Spider-man has been a clone since Steve Ditko left
the title, and everything after 1968 is "new books". He's been reading books
for almost as long as any of us, and has forgotten more about comics history
than you'll ever know! Having spent a spell illustrating RPG games like
Battletech and Call of Cthulhu, he and his staff of Graham Crackers Junior
Rangers are trying to squeeze as much product as possible into our store and
helping customers find what they want. Stop by and see us, in the heart of
the Chicago Loop, steps from Millennium Park.
Andréa - Assistant Manager
the murky depths of an uncle’s basement Punisher: War Stories collection and
the dusty landscape of the twenty-five cent bins of a home-town comic shop
crawled assistant manager Zylah Andréa. An expert on all things odd, gross,
and creepy, Zylah is eager to show anyone who stops in the Graham Crackers
loop store how incredibly broad and interesting the world of comics can be!
Stop in nearly any day of the week
to talk zines with Zylah, or come in the first Wednesday of every month for
GCC Ladies night at the loop where Chicago’s best and brightest femme
artists, writers, and comic connoisseurs meet up to make art of all mediums,
hold workshops, and talk books!
Andy can get us tickets to any sporting event in the city. That's why Andy has a job. Oh, sure, he's friendly, personable and genuinely nicer than all of us. Yes, he's been reading comics for a billion years and has a pretty hefty Silver Age collection. And he collects original comic book art too, but the tickets, see? That's the hook. Andy also loves "Pulling Club" more than he'd admit and no, that is NOT a euphemism, so...
Kirk Jackson is a cautionary tale in which a simple comic book customer somehow found himself on the wrong side of the counter and is now Graham Cracker's newest pusherman. Dont get drawn in by his wily smile and luscious strands of hair, or else you too may wake up elbow deep in a stack of obscure comic books. Part John Travolta, and part Cookie Monster, you may lose your pastries when near him, but will at least take home some of his reading suggestions. Kirk Jackson bent my Wookie!
One of the finest the SAIC has had walk through their doors. They then
promptly stuffed her into a box and shipped her here. She has been a fun
addition to the store, and has been voted “most helpful” employee at our
Loop store, as well as “Most Likely to Trip Over 1 Sheet of Paper”. She
claims to be co-ordinated. We are still waiting for proof. Say hello from a
distance (safety reasons) and check out some of the comics she’s created
that we are proud to have on display as well.
Our resident Noir Fiction fan. Let us make certain of the fact that it is
not Noir Fan Fiction. He has been a welcome addition to our crew and is
always ready to lend a helping hand once he’s had his coffee. Otherwise
things may get a bit Noir-esque.
Chicago Loop Store Testimonial #1:
Just wanted to say thanks for making my sons day today. He is 7 & had never been in such a store before. The staff were so friendly, and easy going. It was obvious they like where they work. After spending way too much time in the store, my son finally chose! ( then to find out he gets 3 more for free!) it might as well had been Christmas. We will definitely be back!
