How canceling Comic-Con affects these Southern California comic book stores

San Diego Comic-Con announced on Friday that it was canceling its 2020 event as concerns over the coronavirus continued. While the news was hardly a surprise to comic book store owners – who had already watched events such as WonderCon in Anaheim and Comic Con Revolution in Ontario postpone their events – it was definitely a hard blow for many of them. “As a comic book retailer, as a comic book publisher, as a comic book fan, it hurts,” Ryan Liebowitz, owner of Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles...

With Comic-Con canceled, comic creators are reeling from convention postponements

I later tried to turn that script into a nov...
