BRANDON, Fla., March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Comic Books and Movies go together like Batman and Robin. In 2016 there will be eight Big Box Office movies based on comic books, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, X-Men Apocalypse and the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War.
This same genre spills over into TV land with super successful shows such as The Walking Dead, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Supergirl, The Flash and Gotham.
Sales are Up, Up, Up and Away, with over a billion in 2016 national and international movie sales, in addition to TV watchers shattering cable viewership records. Comic book based movies and TV shows are reviving and bringing new opportunities to comic book retailers that can cater to new fans.
William Insignares, owner of Hollywood Comics & Collectibles and comic book industry veteran for 24 years, enjoys welcoming new and loyal comic book fans to his new store inside Westfield Brandon in Brandon Florida. "We see many Wonder-Moms and Super-Dads bringing their children to the store, the younger generation is excited about the upcoming movie or TV show and the seasoned fans are introducing them to the original comic books. It's a way for all generations to connect with each other."
Hollywood Comics & Collectibles opened its doors in early March 2016 at Westfield Brandon Town Center and carries vintage comic books, collectibles, toys, T-shirts and apparel with a focus on Superheroes and Villains featured in movies and pop-culture. It is exclusively designed with the comic book reader and TV/Movie viewer in mind. It's a one stop-shop, inside the mall, to get your Superhero pop culture fix and be prepared for the next trend-setting, comic book and TV/Movie culture phenomenon.
