My Favorite Sort Of Recent Comics Business Semi-Trend

I like hearing about successful comic book stores opening up second locations, as is the case with Ann Arbor's Vault Of Midnight opening a shop in Grand Rapids. I'm a big booster of comics shops and of physical retail generally -- I think it's a tried and true way of doing business within the medium and is needlessly, unfairly discounted in terms of sexier ways of selling that kind of material. I'm happy when veteran hands get a chance to extend their influence, as I suspect that the stores with a long-term track record pay greater attention to the quality of material on sale, however they perceive the medium. That might be foolish of me, I know. I like new stores, too.
