Take a look at the above promotion my comic shop sent me this week.  I think the increase in single issue prices (even with the reductions from DC and Marvel last week) has hit the shops hard.  My shop seems to be moving more and more toward becoming a graphic novel shop, with which I really don't have a problem.  What do you think?

Interesting article: "Ten things to know about the future of comics."

Including:

"Newspaper comics are dead." (I think they've been dead for a long time)

"Monthly comic books are dead." (Readers under a certain age make virtually no distinction between a pamphlet and a graphic novel. One is fatter than the other, that's all.)

"Superheroes are not comic-book characters. They're movie and TV characters."

Most of the fans and creators now entering the field "are girls. Publishers, get ready for this."

...Hm.........
