We’re going to start a new series of Friday events and see how long it lasts.
There is no doubt the comic book industry is in as big a crisis as the newspaper industry.Â Fans are quick to point out the faults and foibles of each of the publishers out there, but few have ever come up with suggestions or ideas on how to rescue a particular company and increase the number of issues sold, beyond the typical “Fire INSERT EDITOR IN CHIEF NAME HERE!”
So here’s your chance to fix the industry, and here’s how it works:
- The previous Editor in Chief has been fired, and the publisher is looking to hire a replacement.
- In the comment section below, outline your ideas on what you would do to boost sales and improve the company’s bottom line.
- In your comments you need to not only state the change, but why you believe the change would be for the greater good of the company.Â For example, if your idea is to capture the young reader market (kids between 8 and 12 years old), how are you going to do it?Â What needs to change?
- Convince everyone that your ideas are the best direction for the company, by selling your idea.Â Get us excited, get us fired up, and best of all make sure it is for the good of the company and the industry as a whole.
This week, we’re starting at the top of the comic book chart as named by Diamond Comic Distributors, with Marvel Comics. Joe Quesada is out, and you want his job.
The person with the best, most thought out answer will be named The Major Spoilers Fan of the Week, with all the rights, honors, and privileges appertaining thereto.
Keep it civil, folks.
