Batman kills Superman "In the craziest way possible" - Story at Comic Book

The Importance of Comic Book Shops In an On-Demand Digital World

Liking superheroes and strange genre stories is not what it used to be when I was a kid. In fact, these sorts of stories make up the bulk of pop culture today. Yet, the comic book shop is still a sacred space where the importance of these stories is not taken lightly. Folks can easily dismiss the Marvel or DC films as amusement park rides lacking in the substance that makes great stories. However, in the comics shop, folks understand that these stories are our modern mythology. Kids love superheroes because the real world often lets them down. Captain America, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman are figures who exemplify good values and who will never disappoint us with a secret scandal. (If they do, it’s like a villainous plot involving a doppelganger!)
