Dominic and Keith are still talking about how COVID-19 is changing the nerd pop landscape. This week, what will "normal" even look like?

How comfortable will people be to venture to the movies or congregate with 100,000 of their closest friends in a hot, sweaty convention center in San Diego? Stay-at-home orders in Maryland have forced Diamond Comic Distributors -- the entity solely responsible for getting comics to retailers -- to temporarily shutter its operations. Is this the final nail in the direct market's coffin?
