About COMIC SHOP:
The early 1970s saw the birth of the modern comic book shop. What's the
story behind the fall of comics at your local newsstand and the rise of
market for comic book specialty shops? COMIC SHOP is the story of
dynamic entrepreneurs, and the deals that led to a resurgence for comics
in the U.S. and Canada. In this way, The growth of comic shops created
new spaces for quirky ideas to gain an audience and helped transform

COMIC SHOP is the first book to trace this
history, from the origins of comic shops to the present day, when the
rise of digital platforms has the industry at a crossroads even as sales
are robust. Author Dan Gearino traveled to see comic shops around the
country. Along the way he interviewed those who shaped comics retailing
from the early days, to the shop owners who continue to push the
industry in new directions.

reader with tastes that swing from the classic Legion of Super-Heroes to

Dispatch, he has won national recognition for his work.
