Comics Rx: Kent Falconer’s entry

December 4, 2008

Here’s Kent Falconer’s prescription for the comics industry:

“I don’t really pay enough attention to the American comic book industry’s situation to comment on it, but I do pay close attention to the domestic licensors of manga. All of these companies need to narrow their focus to titles that they actually think can make some money. Far too often, they are licensing series that they later cancel, or at the very least slow down releases to a ridiculous level (Endo Hiroki’s Eden comes to mind, with it’s six month apart release schedule). I am all for niche series, but the companies are still pouring too much money into the mainstream series, where there is far too much competition.”
