Robert Downey, Jr. Buys Avenger Comics

Robert Downey, Jr. went out to buy some comics the other day and was captured in the act by people with cameras.  This is not normally something we’d spend a lot of discussion on, but there was one picture in particular that caught our eye.

One that reminded us of the days when we found comic stores somewhat overwhelming, but at the same time desperately didn’t want anyone to think we needed help.

This one:

I mean, who knows.  Maybe he just heard a strange sound, or is walking down that aisle while glancing down another.  But it also looks like he’s a little bit lost.  I’m sure some helpful store employee hooked him up with everything he needed to catch up on the Avengers.

You can see the whole set of photos at Just Jared.

She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
