"It’s reasonable to expect “Black Panther” to double its 10-day domestic total by the end of its run. At $383 million, that would be $766 million, putting it among the top 25 grossing domestic films of all time. Based on adjusted pricing, that’s bigger than “Jurassic World,” “The Godfather,” “Mary Poppins,” and “Forrest Gump.” It would be a bigger hit than the most successful James Bond, “Goldfinger.” Most of all, that would place “Black Panther” ahead of every single comic-book movie..."
"The system, based around new cloud-based software called Pullbox, will allow customers to manage advance orders online, with access to searchable catalogs for upcoming releases and the ability to create shopping lists, wish lists and manage standing orders within the system. Those lists will then synch with the customer’s chosen physical comic shop, which will then have copies of the desired material onhand within a set period."

“I’m a committed reader myself,” says Alice, “and it’s hugely important to me that my boys – Alex, 8, and Riley, 10 – read a lot. They’re both fluent readers. But for us, all reading is good reading. So we allow them to choose exactly what they like.” For Alex, controversially, that usually means comics. “He loves them,” says his mother. “He will sit with the Beano for ages. He keeps back copies and re-reads them. He likes the annuals, too. He’s much less interested in the novels he brings home from school.”

"...There is one thing that would help. As customers and attendees (often they are newbies. They have never been to a comic con.) If they are handed bags at the door… then their natural thought process is going to be, “Oh, this is great. If I buy something I can put it right in here.” If they do not get bags at the door “placed in their hands”, then they think they are taking a tour of the zoo to see the animals, if you know what I mean. They walk around and look and even if they buy something, for the most part, they don’t have a bag to put it in."
