I’ve meant to link to this a few times — three, to be exact — but haven’t, for one reason or another: It’s The Variants, the web comedy series created by Richard Neal, owner of Zeus Comics in Dallas, and produced by Neal, Joe Cucinotti and Ken Lowery.
If you haven’t caught any of the three monthly previous episodes, The Variants is set, unsurprisingly, in a comic-book store, and focuses on the frequently dysfunctional staff and customers. What’s pleasantly surprising perhaps, given the sheer number of people with access to a video-recording device and access to YouTube (but who shouldn’t be allowed near either), the writing, acting and production are pretty good. (I’m a fan of the smoking, snippy, customer-unfriendly Barry.)
