In the comments section of a previous post, a representative of Carnal Comics weighs in on the likely fallout of Diamond’s discontinuation of Previews Adult:
“We have no illusions about what this will do to our sales to Diamond. For us adult publishers its a double hit. Not only is their adult catalog going to be very hard for consumers to get to, but the higher benchmarks make it very unlikely for almost all the adult publishers to get Diamond to carry our new products. We have always been a niche in the larger market. That niche has for all intents and purposes been wiped out as far as Diamond is concerned.”
Over at the Icarus blog, Simon Jones continues to track reactions and offer commentary.
