It’s a strange time for us comic books fans. Stores are closed due to Covid 19. The ones that are open aren’t getting new comics because Diamond Distribution is closed. Even some publishers are having trouble getting comics printed due to printers being shut down.
There are tons of stories out there abut what happens next.
To get a good picture of what is going on in the comics industry on the retail level, we speak with Tim Schulte, owner of Granite City Comics. He gives a history of how he purchased the store.

What happened when Diamond shut down
How he was able to bulk up on graphic novels before the shut down.
What about Free Comic Book Bay this year?
Stuff he has been doing with his shop since the shut down.
