In its January issue, Wired uses “highly scientific methodology” to find the country’s top geek meccas. That “geek cred” criteria includes the number of comic book stores per capita.
The winner? Seattle, I think. Despite referring to its list as “the top 10 places to get your geek on,” Wired doesn’t actually number the entries.
According to the magazine, the Emerald City has seven comic stores per capita, six tech jobs, per capita, on Dice, and nine attendees at local meetings of dorkbot.
Yeah, I don’t know either.
Comic stores also pop up in the ratings for Orlando (9), and Pittsburgh (10). I had no idea the Burgh was such a haven for comic readers.
