I believe in focusing on the positive as much as the negative. It’s difficult for me, sometimes, but along those lines…
At a time when Marvel is getting attention for directly attacking its competitor by encouraging retailers to destroy DC comics (David Brothers has a good roundup and analysis of the offer, which he calls a “jerk move”), they’re also making a generous offer to a well-known California retailer.
There was a small flood at Brian Hibbs’ store in San Francisco, and all of his Marvel comics section was destroyed. He blogged about it Wednesday morning, yesterday, and this morning he noted that although he is probably Marvel’s biggest public critic, they are replacing the books for free by tomorrow.
That’s the kind of “we’re all in this together because we love comics” action that I appreciate about this industry.
