It ain’t easy makin’ green – especially at a comic book store. And the new comedy web series Geek Cred is going to show you why.
Set in a comic book store, Geek Cred tells the tale of its staff as they face down unruly customers, clueless new employees, and egotistical celebrities in a way that only comic book geeks can. Created by Daniel Beals and starring a slew of familiar faces and guest stars, including Michelle Boyd (Team Unicorn), Jim O’Heir (Parks & Recreation), Brandon Johnson (NTSF:SD:SUV), and many more, Geek Cred was filmed in Manhattan Beach at a real comic shop called The Comic Bug.
It just so happens that I’m a regular customer of the Comic Bug and was lucky enough to take part in a night of shooting one of the episodes as an extra. You won’t find me in this episode, but I’ll be sure to point myself out when that episode rolls around.
Until then, it’s time to hop on the Geek Cred train for their very first episode (embedded above) and meet the characters that, if you’ve spent any time in a comic shop, you’ve probably met a version of in real life. Check out their official site, (geekcredseries.com) for regular updates and new episodes in the coming weeks.
