Meet the Mayor: JP Comics & Games

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats. 

JP Comics & Games
David Levy

So your mayorship is basically up for grabs?
I took a new job this year, so I have less disposable income than I used to. About two months ago, I stopped buying comics.

It's not too late to go mad with power. You could show up on game night and change all the rules . . .
Uh, have you seen the crowd for Magic night? They could totally take me.

Wouldn't they fear your mayoral wrath?
Perhaps, but the comics people and the games people are two very distinct sects. I don't think I'd get any respect from the games people. One of the owners called me on Wednesday and said, "We haven't seen you in two months. What's going on?" We broke up over the phone.

Wow. You broke up with a comic store?
This isn't even the first comic-book store I broke up with. When I worked in Newton, I went to the Newbury Comics there. When JP Comics opened, I was like, "I want to support an independent store in my neighborhood!" So I broke up with Newbury Comics. That was an in-person, heartfelt conversation. Like, "It's not you, it's me."
