After the Nick Barrucci interview yesterday, ICv2 continues to talk to indie publishers with a three-part conversation with IDW’s Ted Adams (Part 1, 2, 3) about the state of the publisher and the state of the industry:
I know I just keep saying the same things over and over, but really the direct market reorders and pre-orders have just really been great. I’ve been doing this for a long time, but the last time I saw this level of excitement and optimism in general was back in the heyday of Death of Superman or launch of Image Comics. I’m not saying numbers are anywhere near what they were in those days, but it does feel like there’s this sense of optimism in the industry and the impression that sales are up. If you talk to comic retailers you get a generally positive reaction from them.
Wait, are we… not dying as an industry for once…? I don’t know how I feel about that.
