L.A's Meltdown Comics is the latest store to close

The poor conduct of the industry has claimed another victim, this one a location used by Comedy Central for some of their broadcasts:
Meltdown Comics, an institution of Los Angeles geekdom and the home of Comedy Central’s “The Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail,” is closing its doors next month.

The shop, whose iconic alien mascot “Mel” graced Sunset Boulevard for more than two decades, is closing its doors forever on April 1. Meltdown Comics founder Gaston Dominguez-Letelier made the announcement Wednesday in a post to the shop’s official blog.

“As is the case with all good things, at some point they must come to an end,” Dominguez-Letelier wrote. “Meltdown Comics is no exception to this rule and so, after 25 years coveting every comic treasure we could lay our hands on, I’m sharing that on March 30th I’ll be closing our doors for the final time.”
But don't expect the publishers whose lurch to social justice discouraged consumers to admit they're at fault. Don't even expect them to admit that sticking with pamphlets already reaching 4 dollars an issue - and not switching to paperbacks - is another serious flaw. Yet those are some of the leading factors in the downfall of so many specialty stores today, and the SJWs running the show have to come to terms with that.

It's a terrible shame this Los Angeles business is forced to close, but that's what results from obsession with social justice pandering.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
