Okay we haven't talked about this in awhile so I'm curious as to what folks experiences are at chain and local bookstores these days - how are they treating the comics?
Comixpedia has written about this from time to time (one of Iain Hamp's columns touched on it. I did in the old blog as well. Also Alexander Danner wrote about it in GNR
Bookstores don't have to be captive to direct market practices regarding comics - in fact they've got their own industry practices that do quite well in selling text-only books of all genres and styles. I'm interested in what a good bookstore is doing in selling comics or what a good bookstore should/could be doing.
