Oh noes, what will the illiterate masses (not)read from now?
Source: Exclusive: Wal-Mart stops selling Amazon Kindles
"We have recently made the business decision to not carry Amazon tablets and eReaders beyond our existing inventory and purchase commitments…This includes all Amazon Kindle models current and recently announced."
This was the announcement from a Walmart spokesman today as the company finally decided to come to terms with the fact that its customers have no need for e-readers, as most of them cannot read. For proof, all you need to do is peruse http://www.peopleofwalmart.com to see the troglodytes that frequent the world’s largest retailer.
What does this mean to comic book fans? Nothing really, as we can and do read on a regular basis. The only real consequence is that we would have to go to amazon.com to get the newest Kindle if we need a cheap way to read digital comics…but, c’mon we all know they are the devil.
Target, the respectable cousin to Walmart, stopped stocking Amazon products over a month ago because it was jealous of Amazon’s awesomeness.

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
