Scott Samson has been with the company on and off since 2002 and is proud to be the Manager of the Fantasy Shop Location in South County. He's been the manager there since 2008. Scott is an avid comic fan and considers himself more of a reader than a collector. Scott also loves playing Magic.
John K. - Clerk
"Jesus, I cried like a child at the end of Terminator 2." Is the only available quote from John on record currently since joining the Fantasy Shop family in late 2015. Though, it's possible it's just something he heard Simon Pegg say at one point or another because John has been working in film, music, and video game retail since 2005.
John is a big fan of the films of Wes Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock, and Martin Scorsese. His favorite films of recent memory include Mad Max: Fury Road, The Raid, and Ex Machina. Musically he can be all over the place with acts such as No Age, Jamie XX, and Kendrick Lamar.
John, a lifelong superhero aficionado, made the jump back into comics after being awestruck by all that's been going on in the world of Image, Valiant, and Snyder Batman alike. Favorites would include Saga, Buzzkill, Alias, Morning Glories, Planetary, and Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol.
John's fears include mice and spiders, but oh-so-much greater is the fear that one day the two species will cross-breed to form an all-powerful race of mice-spiders who will immobilize human beings in giant webs in order to steal cheese. John also likes TV shows such as Spaced, BSG, Star Trek, Peep Show, and The Wire.
Last but not least John is a big fan of all things professional wrestling, from NJPW to WWE/NXT. So make sure to drop a too sweet if you see him in his super kick party t-shirt.
Sam H. - Clerk
Sam is a new fan of comics and a big fan of film. He's ready to tell you about the books he's excited about and is thrilled to hear your recommendations as well!
Langley G. - Clerk in Reserve/Pokemon League Leader
Langley is an aspiring comic and cartoon artist who has been with the South County location of the company since 2014. Langley's always prepared to suggest books full of cool ladies, and is hoping to one day become the Pokémon Master that we all deserve. Last seen piloting a giant robot on the way to save the world.
Colin D. - Clerk in Reserve
Colin is one of the biggest Hellboy fans you'll ever meet. He's probably the biggest Punisher fan you'll ever meet. He's currently working as an editor for a video production company but volunteers at the store often.
Sammie S. - Clerk in Reserve
Sammie Stanley is the Clerk in Reserve at the Fantasy Shop South County. You're likely to see here as a customer more often than as a Clerk but around the time of Big Events (Like Free Comic Book Day and the like) you can expect her to show up and strap the lanyard back on. An X-Men fanatic since a young age she'll gladly squee with you about any of your favorite characters from the series, new or old. She's also perhaps the world's preeminent Supernatural fan (She doesn't have a favorite character and if you do then she will assure you that you are, in fact, watching it wrong). She's also a big fan of Dominion and other great deck building games and board games (like the D&D Board Games).
