Midnight Madness

A few comic shops have announced that they will be opening at midnight to sell the new Scott Pilgrim book, Scott Pilgrim’s finest hour. While this will certainly lead to the book being pirated that much quicker, I think it’s awesome that this is happening. With the buzz being created by the trailers for the Scott Pilgrim movie, this move seems like a no-brainer. It gives me a fuzzy warm feeling to see stores open at midnight to sell any type of book, even fucking Twilight nonsense. Hopefully this is a trend that will continue to develop and more and more stores will push not only big titles, but indie books as well. How about a store viewing when The Walking Dead debuts on AMC? Or a comic shop talking to a theater and setting up some cross promotions with a midnight viewing? There is a ton of room for growth here and I really hope we see some great things happen.
