Reading this news item at the ComicsBeat.com, It made me think about Comic book sales at my own comic shop.
A Growing Sense of Concern Over Marvel’s Sales - http://pulse.me/s/bTQgh
For the past couple of months I've noticed my comic shop orders less titles and often running out of comics before the end of Wednesday. In many cases I have also noticed the shop misjudged how many to issues to order (the recent wedding issue of x men was significantly over ordered.) There was also a recent round of layoffs at the shop with many long time employees being shown the door. All that adds up to a business in serious trouble.
This makes me wonder:
Are the problems at my shop indicative of widespread problems throughout the industry?
So how is the place you buy your comics doing?
