I dread to think of the economic fall out this might cause. We might be seeing a good number of shops closing for good without a bit of good fortune and creative intervention happening.
I think a lot of small businesses will probably fail due to the lack of business.
A lot of people are advocating the purchase of gift certificates since that gets money in the hands of the merchant immediately during the crisis, and that kind of thing could be done online without the physical need to make an appearance in the shop. Win/Win.
steveinthecity: The Amazon search function is a bit wonky. I tried “Marvel Tom King”. Now while it did bring up a Superman book by Tom King, I also got Chucky and Bay Watch blu-rays. It might take a while to find three.

Ditch Fahrenheit: @steve - search under 'Graphic Novel.'

steveinthecity: Ditch Fahrenheit - I did that, but the results are very random. A few things are cheaper on eBay even with the discount applied. I found one book by Reed Tucker, “Slugfest” that I wasn’t familiar with. It’s about the DC/Marvel rivalry.

Ditch Fahrenheit: I didn't compare prices. That stinks. They've diluted the power of their promotions now and I probably won't pay any attention in the future.
