Comic Book Vending Machine Trades Coins for Geeky Reading Materials

by Shane McGlaun

I am a sucker for vending machines that dispense things that you don’t expect to find in a vending machine. One of my all time favorites was the vending machine that would sell you hot French fries. A teen named Chris Romberger has come up with what may be the second coolest vending machine I have ever seen.

The teen’s machine has all sorts of comic books inside for you to purchase. The 19-year old teen has Down Syndrome and autism and worked with a job coach to open his business. The business is called Comic Man.

Inside the machine are a wide assortment of single edition comics. It’s unclear exactly how many issues the machine has sold since it opened. All we know is that it sold “several issues” in the first few weeks it was open. The teen keeps the machine stocked and is considering opening more in other locations.
