About Comic Book Guy
As you may know by his more popular name, the Comic Book Guy, Jeffrey “Jeff” Albertson is obsessed with comic books, science fiction, and pop culture in general. This is noted by his bumper stickers and license plate. He’s around 45-years-old, has a master degree in folklore and mythology, and still lives with his mother. He’s the owner of The Android’s Dungeon & Baseball Card Shop which is the local comic book store in Springfield on the Fox animated show The Simpsons.
While he sells the things in his shop for quite a high price, the comics and toys that he does sell are pretty poor quality. There’s a time in the episode “Husband and Knives” where the Comic Book Guy goes out of business due to a better comic book store opening across the street. After going out of business, it’s not known how he got his comic book store back though.
