Book stores aren’t supposed to exist anymore. Especially independent ones.

The sad truth is that, at one point, Amazon and waning attention spans massacred these outlets, turning customers into e-shoppers and proprietors into paupers. Which is why exceptions have to be exceptional.

Meltdown Comics on Sunset Boulevard is one of those special misfits.

It’s a 10,000 square foot playground offering cartooning and writing classes, open mics, events, shows—the store’s even spawned a network television series starring names even non-geeks recognize. Oh yeah, and the place also sells comics. Tons. Everything from the spandex set to avant garde graphic novels. French, Spanish, Japanese creations, lots of toys, plus books with characters who grapple with love, rejection, and how to pay the rent—issues the store’s 45 year-old bearded Chilean owner has faced repeatedly for the past 26 years.

“I lucked out,” said Gaston Dominguez-Letelier, who opened Meltdown in 1993 with his then-wife Ilia. “I do daily what I love. When I started out, it was scary. Because if I fail, I’m done. So there was no option to fail.” Read the rest of the article here: http://smashd.co/take-a-page-from-meltdown/

Meltdown Comics presents History of the Batman with Londyn! – Episode 33: Batman’s Many Deaths in DC Comics

It’s a common practice in comic book tales that a character dies and then, by some miracle, is resurrected. Looking at Batman’s incredible 76 year history, many of the Batman Family members have died and come back to life, sometimes even by surprising the audience. In recent New 52 comics, Bruce Wayne’s Batman apparently died alongside the Joker and now another is the Dark Knight of Gotham City. But this isn’t the first or even second time that Batman has died in DC Comics. In this week’s podcast, Londyn and co-host Adam Silverstein will look at ten different times our hero has died or has seemingly died in comic books in the last 76 years of Pre-New 52 continuity. The Batman represents the ultimate human, with peak physical and mental capacities yet he still has emotions and flaws. This list will demonstrate that even this dark vigilante cannot hide forever from his own humanity or from the glooming shadow of the Grim Reaper.

Meltdown Presents: On Some Hip Hop Sh!t: #05 – The Album Club ‘3 for all’ episode

Hosts @Bschultz808 and @wedsfinest are joined by the @Madtwiinz we get our full Rap sommelier on.

We go deep on 3 works by Kendrick Lamar, Public Enemy and Ice Cube. Inspired by VH1’s The Breaks and writer/director (friend of the show) Seith Mann, we took a look back to 1990.

Moved by the lyrical and musical DNA that these records share, we HAD to fast forward to 2015 and discuss Kendrick Lamar’s strangely underrated musical opus in the context of his lyrical forefathers, Ice Cube and Chuck D.

Yeah. We str8 #onsomehiphopshit
