Detroit’s Metromode is featuring a series of guest blog entries by friend-of-the-ferret, and co-owner of Green Brain Comics, Dan Merritt. You can read them here.

In his first post, Dan talks a bit about dispelling the stereotypes around comic book readers. It’s a piece aimed mostly at non-insiders, so it’ll probably be familiar territory to most readers of this blog. In the second part, he covers a bit of history about Green Brain Comics, and the Detroit Market. I found this statement interesting:

Today, Detroit remains one of the biggest markets for direct market comic book stores. It’s been estimated that Detroit area comic book stores sell five million dollars’ worth of comic books, graphic novels, and miscellaneous related products annually. This doesn’t even include the mass market book store share.

It looks like he’ll have more posts coming up, in which he promises to delve deeper into the retailer realities, which is what I’m looking forward to. Check it out from time to time.
