The successful ones I've seen were those that transitioned over to collectible cardboard crack games and hosting tournaments.
They've all but given up on stocking with new current issues and instead get trades and resales. More and more of the existing space is being taken over by the indies as well.

The shelves are instead being stocked with a ton of Warhammer and other figs, plus a ton of board games to appeal to that sort of market.
Others have pretty much converted to used/retro gaming resale stores, with again, the cardboard crack.
I'd say you'd be hard-pressed to find a comic book store that doesn't also deal with other nerdshit like tabletop roleplaying and/or wargaming. Not particularly mainstream (then again actual capeshit books aren't either), but the fanbase is rather loyal and has deep pockets. Probably also more "space-efficient" (I'd wager a typical D&D hardcover core set or Spess Mehren squad box costs more than an equal volume of non-binary capeshit that nobody wants).
The closest I've ever seen was a mangu store, but that one also had a bunch of imported magazines and other forms of literature for what I assume to be the local Japanese enclave.
How does the fat chick not have the neck rolls? Is that the secret fantasy of landwhales?
Neck rolls are fatphobic propaganda.

I thanked my local comic shop for not selling Funko Pops.

This is what Marvel is producing now.
This is just so ridiculous, with characters named Safespace and Snowflake. It seems like a parody of modern comics. Do you think this was done tongue-in-cheek? (I hate that phrase, but can't think of a synonym .)

Or is this just "how do you do, fellow kids?"
I remember when some comics blatantly pandered to teens when I was young, like their "Generation X" title. I always saw through it and I don't think I was alone.

Marvel really let themselves go when it comes to the esteemed family of "Snow-" capeshitters.

The NEW New Warriors thing is SO parodically over-the-top that I'm still not convinced that it isn't a complete troll and that there really is no comic.

ALL of the response seems to be coming from Comicsgate. I'm not seeing one peep from anti-Comicsgate about how this all looks awesome.

And if it is a troll, all it did was give Ethan 'n' Zack 'n' co. more material.
