I went to Forbidden Planet with friends today. It's the closest thing to those huge geek American comic shops you'll find in London. With a big ground floor full of action figures, toys and dolls, and library sized basement packed with all the comic books you could ever read, you'd expect some children. But no, these toys weren't meant to be played with. Just to be acquired with sad money by sadder people. The fact that the shop had no women was less surprising. Not that you'd want to meet the kind of women that do go to these shops.
