Comic Book Reading Before COVID-19 – Poll Results

In the latest Superman Homepage Member Poll we asked you the following question:

Before COVID-19, how did you read your comic books?

Half of you read your comic books in physical form before COVID-19 stopped their distribution. It will be interesting to see how fans will respond if physical copies aren’t available for quite some time.

With the way things are due to the virus, I can see how comic book companies would suffer. However these same numbers that say that fans buy physical copies, give me the impression that when comic book stores do start to sell actual comics again, that people will buy them because they miss having a physical copy of the comic.
