Capitalism fails

Free Comic Book Day was a disappointment. The website said there would be manga comics among the free comics. We went to the local comic store. This was the first time G. had been there. She had money burning a hole in her pocket. Comic Outpost is an old style comic store. It was pretty friendly with a two plates of cookies and cupcakes by the free comics. But there was no manga to be seen apart from some books like Akira that were new when I was a kid. It seems like a failure of capitalism when a kid cannot spend her money on what she wants. Fortunately the library provided the goods and we returned home happy.
