Comic Shop - The Retail Mavericks Who Gave Us a New Geek Culture

 

 
Comic Shop: The Retail Mavericks Who Gave Us a New Geek Culture by Dan Gearino and Tom Spurgeon Swallow Press | October 2017 | ISBN-10: 0804011907 | ePUB | 18 MB The early 1970s saw the birth of the modern comic book shop. Its rise was due in large part to a dynamic entrepreneur, Phil Seuling. His direct market model allowed shops to get comics straight from the publishers, bypassing middlemen. Stores could better customize their offerings and independent publishers could now access national distribution. In this way, shops opened up a space for quirky ideas to gain an audience and helped transform small-press series, from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Bone, into media giants. Comic Shop is the first book to trace the history of these cultural icons. Dan Gearino brings us from their origins to the present day, when the rise of digital platforms has the industry at a crossroads even as sales are robust. He spends a year with stores around the country, with a spotlight on The Laughing Ogre in Columbus, Ohio. Along the way he interviews those who shaped comics retailing from the early days, including many pioneering women; top creators; and shop owners who continue to push the industry in new directions. About the Author Dan Gearino (DanGearino.com) is a writer and reporter in Columbus, Ohio. He writes on the business desk for The Columbus Dispatch. Previously, he was a newspaper (and occasional radio) reporter, first in New Hampshire, where he covered the 2004 presidential primary, and then in his native Iowa, where he covered the 2008 caucuses. By night, he writes about comics. He lives in Columbus with his much better half and their two daughters. CONTENTS Foreword PART l.
