Ring a bell?

In 2005, Alex Robinson published Box Office Poison, his Eisner Award-winning graphic novel about young writers and comic artists in New York City.

Protagonist Sherman Davies struggles to come up with anything publishable while working his frustrating day-job as a bookstore clerk...where the most frequently asked question is, "Do you work here?"

Yeah, so it's not a library, but you will probably recognize it....

The middle guy on the bottom  is Sherman's best friend Ed Valeasquez, teasing him.  The last guy is Robinson spoofing himself.

The last woman is Sherman's colleague Janice.

Can I go home now?
