Toys ‘R’ Us To Sell Comic Books. Some Of Them.

The photo above is a proposed comic book line up, snapped at a Toys ‘R’ Us in North Little Rock, Arkansas. It shows that the toy seller is about to start selling  selection of comics with mainstream appeal. Note the preponderance of superhero-comics-for kids, lots of use of the word Adventures in the titles.  Teh DC Cartoon Network books and Tiny Titans. Also media friendly titles such as Titan’s WWE, Bongo’s The Simpsons and Archies’ Sonic The Hedgehog. But there is certainly Marvel dominance.

However the maturing of certain DC and Marvel titles of late may indicate there may be problems in the future. Will Toys ‘R’ Us be happy with Spider-Man engaging in casual sex?
