Hello and welcome back to Comics Misremembered. This week we will be tackling all the issues that are destroying the Comics Marketplace and give you solutions!
Before we get to solving all the problems, I was to take a minute to address the passing of 2 of my favorite artists:
I speak about their careers and what an impression that both these artist have left on me growing up.
We then go on to address the anti-corporate political movement on social media regarding a certain comic group and why they don’t like the upcoming new titles being released by Marvel and DC.
I am a man that looks for solutions when he is presented with a problem and I give some very real remedies to the so called “political problems” of today’s comics. What is the answer to all these issues?
I can sum it up by showing you a few things. What do these 4 comics have in common?
Give up? All 4 of these comics are Anthology comics. If you were born after 1995, you may be asking “What the heck is an anthology comic?”
Well, young person, an Anthology comic is a weekly or bi-weekly comic that features 3 to 4 different stories per book. These stories feature some of the most popular heroes and are written by new and established talent. It is also a great opportunity to introduce brand new characters into their prospective universes and see if they click with the audience.
In the podcast we go over many different reasons on why Anthology comics needs to make a come back into the current comic scene and why it’s the perfect testing ground for new characters in order to spring board them into their own ongoing series.
Listen to the podcast and see if this is crazy enough to work!
Your comics pal,
