Maybe, but this is a small industry. He’s going to have feelings.
While I hate to hear of the negative impact it could be having on LCS, many Americans don’t have access to them. Makes sense with 97% of the USA being rural. I bought a LOT of my comics from a spinner rack at Borders until the early 2000’s. Thank baby Jesus the internet happened so I could order online when they shut down.
Since then I’ve lived in major cities and not so major cities all over the place. I’ve gone between having plenty of access (Chicago, Milwaukee) to not so much access (Canton, NC anybody?). I prefer ordering online nowadays. Maybe if local bookstores had spinner racks again…
I feel for the LCS. Maybe I’m in the minority, but it has absolutely zero impact on my reading habits living where I live now.
