I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again – Free Comic Book Day is one of the most creative and successful ways to attract new readers/customers into local comics shops ever conceived. Well, following on the heels of that success is Halloween ComicFest, which hasn’t quite caught on with the same vigor. However, I think it’s time to make this event another great one when it comes to spreading the word about our love for comics!
This year’s New York Comic Con, hands down, was the best one of theirs I’ve been to! And that’s saying something since I’ve attended a goodly number of them! But I saw some unique advertising that surprised me. And it was found in the Men’s Room, of all places!
I’ve been intrigued by all the recent discussion about Marvel’s position in the marketplace and what’s the cause of the recent decline in sales.
With the advent of the Internet and the endless news cycle, we also can’t escape the unceasing flow of information, including the news that a favorite Syfy show of mine, Dark Matter, has been cancelled after three seasons. Rats.
A lot of people on the Internet are talking about the interesting recent news that Robert Kirkman is taking his intellectual properties under Skybound from cable channel AMC to Amazon Prime.
I remain quite a big fan of Star Trek, so I’m fascinated by the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery because, frankly, we haven’t had weekly Trek on the tube for quite a long time now.
Sometimes it’s a real disadvantage having read comics for as long as I have. You live to see things come back in one form or another.
