Last weekend, a friend of mine who works in a comic shop hit me up Saturday night asking me to be an extra in the new web series–“Welcome to Tate’s.”
My reaction was mostly just uh….
He then explained to him that the comic shop got funding to create this really awesome web series about villains attacking the shop. If I wanted to be a hostage I needed to wear normal clothes. If I wanted to be a henchmen, still normal clothes, but bring a dark hoodie.
Which…well crap. Said hoodie is still at the store as I never wore it. I wound up wearing an Arkham orange shirt over my black cargo pants and boots. I don’t know how much of me is actually in the episode, but I don’t think I look all that good. But hey, I’m not supposed to be me, but a crazy henchmen! Also, I had lines. I didn’t expect that. It may or may not be in the episode. Seeing as how I’m not the one putting it together, I can’t tell you.
Still, it was a lot of fun! I met new people, got to read comics, and pretend to be Bane’s escaped henchman. So, all in all, a great experience.
I’m not sure when it will be out, but as soon as it is, I’ll make sure to post it up. In the mean time! Here’s the trailer for the series.

PS. Tate’s Comics is by far the best comic shop of all time.
