Voice of America visited the Northern Virginia comic book store NOVA Comics and Games in Springfield, Virginia, and talked to sales clerk Dave Weinberger who says, "Comics are too expensive for kids. And they’ve changed -- ". This show is to help non-English speakers, so it's a bit basic, but hey, before the Internet, you couldn't even hear VOA in America. Both John Lent and I have been on programs we've never heard.
