This Morning in Publishing: October 27, 2016

Now here’s a cameo more exciting than a superhero crossover! Ariell Johnson, owner of Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse in Philadelphia, is the first black woman to own a comic book store on the East Coast—and she’s also the first to appear on the cover of a Marvel Comic! Chatting it up with new Iron Man Riri Williams, no less. That’s the kind of groundbreaking news you’ll find in today’s publishing culture roundup!
