I think this is excellent news.
“Ubiquitous coffee chain Starbucks is expanding the offerings in its Starbucks Digital Network, which allows latte-lovers to read free digital content in its stores.”
This is such a great idea. Not only does it give Marvel more attention, but it is also another great way to get people into comic books. Since convenience stores have dropped spinner racks of comics, the only real way to get comics is either through a comic store or via a large book chain. Since comics are arguably taboo in popular culture (unless it’s in movie-form), I can understand why some people may be hesitant to go buy comics this way.
Since the comic industry seems to be fighting a uphill battle, I do think this is a step in the right direction.
Keep on Space Truckin’!
