There Are 3.8% More Comic Stores In 2016 Than There Were At The Beginning Of 2015

It was a nice statistic that came out of ComicsPRO. That the number of comic book retailers ordering through the direct market from Diamond Comic Distributors was up in 2015 on 2014, by 3.8%.

That’s probably around 80-100 new comic book stores across the USA.

And with Walmart launching their plans, and also going through Diamond, look for that number to get a further boost through 2016…

Here are a few of the most recent entries to the market.
