Swimming in Liquid Topaz by Michael Tierney

Scuba Diving in the Caribbean, Gulf, Antilles, Bahamas, and other exotic locales!

I've added this section to try and dispell a common misconception about the comic book industry.

Comic Book Store owners always get a bad rap, as the public perception is that we're all like the rude, Simpson's Comic Book Store Guy, sitting and surrounded by nothing but food and big stacks of Super-Hero comics.

Like a Super-Hero, my other hobbies involve a mask and breathing apparatus, specialized training that includes rescue, dangerous activities and encounters with deadly animals, plus travel around the world to exotic locations, including a trip down the road to a lost civilization.

These are the incredible, but true adventures of a masked Comic Book Store Guy.
