SDCC '08 - Are Monthly Comics Dying?
By JK Parkin
It’s a question that publishers, creators, retailers and fans have been speculating about for years now – are “comic pamphlets,” i.e. the monthly comic format, in a death spiral? While the answer varies depending on who you ask, there’s a growing consensus that the trade paperback and the graphic novel are on the rise while the monthly comic is on the decline. But don’t start the death march for “floppies” just yet.
--- Really interesting read on what's happened to the comic industry.
