* Diamond has created a pop-up program around spinner racks. That's one of those ideas that seems like a really good idea and yet I have no idea if it will work a tiny bit, a lot or not at all. I always bet on the house.

Deals like these weaken the grip that the idea of a career in mainstream comics and the adoption of its best goals for creators has on the best genre-interested talent.
