To Con Or Not To Con?

To con, or not to con? That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler on the ego to suffer the slings and arrows of Marvel and DC fans or take to arms against the price of tables and by opposing them, to lie and sleep in some more; and by sleep to stay-in on a weekend. The heartache, and the thousand unsold books that my spouse is heir to. Tis a comic con devoutly to be publish’d.

Serial Kickstarters

It’s no secret that the comic book projects that seem to do best on Kickstarter are the ones with creators who already have big names or properties that have been building up huge followings for years. But what about the part-time creator who doesn’t have the brand equity that these other Kickstarter giants do? Is Kickstater a viable way to fund, produce and distribute a regularly produced comic book? I wanted to find out so I cornered a few guys who were putting out KS books on a regular basis. Their answers were quite insightful.

A 71-year old DC Ad

While spending an anniversary weekend at the old Laingdon Hotel in Ocean Grove/Asbury Park, NJ,  I found a bound book of New York Times newspapers from the 40s. While going through the huge volume, I came across this ad from National Comics, now known as DC comics, dated July 19, 1946. Exactly 71 years ago. It’s quite eerie how the issues that plagued the industry then so mirror what we are experiencing today. I have posted details of the ad so you can read it in full.
