    It's a shame, but I'm sure the sollution to save all the jobs that will or can be lost is not release any new product for months to please Diamond and some stubborn readers.

    You just mentioned digital, which I corrected. There were reasons that solution was not going to work which had nothing to do with a give and take.

    I sometimes feel like comics retailers are cutting their nose off to spite the face.

    This reminds me of Kodak inventing the digital camera in 1975, but keeping it in store for decades because they made too much money with the traditional one. Look how that turned out...

    They are looking out for their long term viability and I understand that. So was Blockbuster which I loved going to when I was young, but they to protect their stores told Netflix to take a hike which they were offered to buy out for almost nothing and refused to adapt to changing times and circumstances.

    There is an old saying about what does not adapt...

    It just fucking blows that now even more people have to suffer because local comic shops are suffering. Not like this is fixing anything they'll still be closed not making money, now other people are getting screwed too sucks ass, had they just gone digital we could have avoided all this BS.

    Boom. They're gonna release their not-so-great sellers and we're going to enjoy them whether we like it or not!

    I definitely have sympathy for the comic shops. But, like you say, they seem averse to any adaptation or change. That's part of the reason this is such a crisis. By in large, comic shops have done nothing to adapt to changes in technology and environment.

    I saw a lot of people shit on ComicHub for wanting to be a "middleman" but if Doordash, Shipt, Saucey, Postmates, InstaCart, etc etc etc etc are any indication, people are totally fine with middlemen. If comic shops had a middleman to work with, maybe people would still be able to give them money.

    In large part, the comics industry is a hobby industry run by hobbyists, not by business-minded people.

    I'm a K-Pop stan, so 2020 is gonna have to do a lot to beat 2019 for shittiness. It's certainly putting in the work, though.
