Titans TV series will introduce second Robin, Jason Todd - Nerdist

Jason Todd is a very significant character in the Batman mythology, and to a lesser extent, that of the Teen Titans. As a character, when he was first introduced he was more or less hated, but he has eventually become a fan favorite. Jason Todd was first introduced in the pages of Batman in 1983, right around the time the now 19 year old Dick Grayson was ditching the Robin identity to become Nightwing

Running a Comic Book Store is not childs play at the Laughing Ogre - Columbia Dispatch

"...I was with Wendy’s for 12 years, and it was the best experience ever for running a comic shop because every Wendy’s manager every Monday morning does a (profit and loss report) for their store. You’re taught to lay it out. You know where every penny went.

That's a good advice and a standard for any business that intends to make enough money to pay its way.

Q: You and your partners opened the store in 1994. What are the big differences between the store then and today? A: The floor back then was taken up by back issues because that was the primary difference between going to the newsstand and going to the comic store is you could get old issues. ... We still sell back issues, but they are a significantly smaller part of our business

Incidentally: DC Comics recently closed out its distribution to newstands entirely (see this story at comichron)
