Comic books have been popular for decades now. Every one of us has grown with them, though it must be said that with the advent of other forms of entertainment, the comic book reading habit is on the wane. With many other options available like television, Internet, video games, and CDs, children have more options than before. Regardless, comic books and their protagonists continue to be popular among kids and adults alike. The testimony to their popularity is the number of comic heroes, who have been given life in Hollywood blockbusters. Spiderman, Superman, Punisher, Batman? You name it and these superheroes have been successful in their reel version.
Like comic books, comic book stores, too, can be found cangura almost everywhere. A good comic book will store hundreds, if not thousands, of comics to choose from. One can locate them quite easily, with many of them serving generations of families. You can also shop for comic books online. Online stores stock up thousands of comics. One can get bundled offers in the form of games along with comic books. Some comic book stores also sell comics in the digital format, which are easy to use and sometimes interactive. Comic book stores were perhaps at their peak during the “golden age of comics,” during the 1940s and 50s, when many of the superheroes made their debut through comics. Although one can shop for comics online, going to a comic shop to buy comics still has takers and has got its own charm about it.
You can also shop for comic books at comic cons, which are normally one-three day events where comic book dealers trade in a city. Comic cons were popular during the 1970s but with the increase in Internet usage, and therefore, sales of comic books via the Internet, they are not as popular as they used to be.
