    To some, comic books are a hobby, but for Raymond McGillicuddy and Norman Link, they are a way of life. Both men own comic book stores in the same sleepy town, and both are after the hottest ticket in town - a rare collection of old comic books - potentially worth millions to the right dealer. However, when the elderly owner won`t sell, it becomes a madcap free for all with friend turning against friend in a battle for the loot. As the stakes get higher, their antics take a dark turn, and begin spiraling into a dangerous game full of greed, betrayal and murder.

    This movie caught my eye with it`s title (yes i confess i am a comic book geek and im proud of it) so this movie whats it about a nice geeky comic book guy like me and 2 rival comic shop owners discover the holy grail of comic collections. in the back of some old ladies house problem is she dont wanna sell them.
    so how far will theese comic geeks go to get them.

    The first half of the film is your general laugh at the comic geeks type film comedy. But towards the end switchs to a very Dark Comedy Thriller that really gets ya going on whole this is a very underated piece of film.

    The video Quality is good enough for a not so big budget movie same with the sound it`s not pant wettingly amazing but is good enough for this type of movie.

    Extra`s on the other hand is this discs downfall apart from a few pretty crap easter eggs thats it.

    Although if there is any kevin smith fans about this does include a trailer for VULGAR which is pretty cool.
