WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Please Rewind™ is a long running series based around three best friends, affectionately known as the Nerdly Trio™, who start a video store with dreams of making a living in an industry they love. The series first appeared online on May 22, 2004.
BASED ON A (KIND OF) TRUE STORY
The comic is loosely based on the creator’s time as a clerk at a video store in the 1990’s. While the names have been changed and the experiences largely exaggerated for comedic effect, it’s heart lies in a real video store that used to exist.
To this day, I still feel there is nothing quite like the buzz and excitement felt on Friday nights when people would crowd into the store to rent the latest blockbuster. The neon, shelves of VHS cassette rewinders whirring away, that warm popcorn smell and more candy than you could safely eat in one sitting. All of it came together to make an experience that is sadly lost to time.
