Oh, Thank Heaven...

...Comics are back at the 7-11.

Well, they will be according to this news release out of Newsarama's bullpen.

This is good news to me if they don't manage to cock it up by mismanaging the thing. The books they've chosen may or may not work to bring in new readers as they hope (Marvel Adventures could be a miss but the Ultimate books could be a hit) since they're obviously trying to market them at kids and can't stick anything controversial on the stands.

Anyway, it's nice to see someone looking outside the Direct Distribution Market in regards to comic books (not graphic novels or trades) for a change. Let's hope this is step one in a grand renaissance of comic book distribution.
