With the new changes in Diamond’s minimum order amounts, small publishers and indipendent creators need up their marketing tactics if they want their titles to succeed.  Alex Sheikman has either read my musings on the subject, or really listened to what Chip Mosher and Shannon Wheeler had to say on the recent Marketing 101 podcast, as he took those messages to heart and contacted us about his Atomika series.

To relaunch the series, Archaia is printing a double size issue of 64 pages containing the first issue of “For A Few Rubles More”, published back in 2008, and 32 new pages of story and art.

As always, Major Spoilers is here to promote the industry and its creators no matter how large or small the company.

    I’m becoming convinced you guys could make even the worst comic sound good. I’d like to hear you guys have a segment in the show where you take a comic, character, or artist people are bashing and convince us to appreciate them more. :)

      We kind of already did that during the Frank Miller vs. grant morrison podcast where Matthew tries to convince me that grant’s run on Batman is worthwhile :D
