It would seem that the store might experience a slight uptick in sales in the foreseeable future. This is just the early bird reporters too. (ooh I forgot to draw the people looming outside.) Given the store’s previous history and sales records, it’s possible their inventory will be depleted by the weekend if not sooner.
Not a whole lot else to say about this page really. Oh, the poster on the wall behind Sydney is for the webcomic Superbitch (which actually has a book out, so it makes sense they’d have it in the store) The poster was fairly prominent in the middle panel until I added in the balloons and orbs. I’ve linked it a few times and it lives over in the “Webcomics I Like” block. When Maxima is feeling grumpy she probably goes and kicks around with the title’s main character. They’d probably get on well enough but eventually they’d piss each other off.
