Jake Pierce is a corn
fed Indiana boy who fell in love with all things Spider-man as a child due
to the 90s animated series. Moving to Chicago to meet new aspiring comic
creators in 2014, Jake has worked at Graham Crackers Comics for just about
as long as he’s been in Chicago. You can usually find Jake at the store
discussing which Sinister Six line-up is his favorite, what his favorite
Jack Kirby creation is, or who has the best looking suplex in all of
Pro-Wrestling. Jake also hosts and produces the comedy show “RAD. a fun
show” which happens in the basement of the Lakeview store the first and
third Thursday of each month.
BROUWER - Assistant Manager
A well rounded American natural, Dan has been selling comic books to
other humans for most of his adult life.
Dan can be found sorting,
cleaning, and alphabetizing piles of comics and collectables in multiple
corners of the store most days of the week.
His nerd foci include
pre-Episode 1 Star Wars continuity, green/red Magic: the Gathering agro decks,
8-bit Nintendo games, and vegetarian cuisine.
Dan also thinks the
Scarlet-Spider is the best Spider-Man because sleeveless blue hoodies are on
trend this season.
Lakeview Store Testimonial
hello, my name is Jono Rodriguez. I used to frequent at your
Graham Crackers location before moving to Texas. First, let me just
say that I miss your store terribly. **** **** is the worst comic
store ever, especially the one that is closest to me. Only one of
the seven employees that work there are even remotely interested in
comics or collectables. The others are either between ages 16 and
24 and ONLY care about Magic cards or a fare-weathered mother or a
"guy who just needs a part time job." Their back issues are
boardless and awfully organized, if you really call cramming all the
A's, B's, C's, etc. into several long boxes organization (as in no
titled separations - just alphabetized).
I think the best
thing about Graham Crackers is the separation of companies (Marvel,
DC, Indy, etc.) which you don't see in nearly any comic stores. I
still order online when I need a comic I can't find at the, yes, TWO
comic stores in a twenty mile radius. And the shipping is super
fast. I'll order it late Wednesday night and receive it on Saturday
morning. Fastest shipping service ever.
But I digress.
It's easy to like a comic store, but it's not until you leave that
comic store and go to a much lesser comic store before you love that
