Vaya por delante que -una vez que paro de REIR HISTÉRICAMENTE- a mi me tiene ya absolutamente sin cuidado los relanzamientos de DC. ¡Y hasta los de Marvel!
Pero Stephenson, de Image Comics, siempre tiene unas declaraciones que revolucionan a toda la Industria del Cómic, y ciertamente esta está necesitada de de dichas Revoluciones. Por eso las comparto ¡y las difundo...!
Do we want to build our single issues sales? Of course we do, but we're not going to do it with retailer exclusive covers or pressuring accounts to qualify for outrageous incentives, we're not going to do it by inflating our numbers through Loot Crate variants and we're not going to do it by playing the relaunch/reboot/renumber game.
I mean -- by all indications, DC's going to go that route again this year, and going back to the market share for 2015, I guarantee you it's not because they ended last year on a high note.
Dropping 5 percent in units -- that's a sign there's something wrong, and the grim reality there is that it's going to take more than a slew of new number ones to make things better.
What's the point of advertising a line's rebirth, when these superhero universes are reborn every few years?
First, it was just a case of killing of characters and resurrecting them, now it's whole universes, again and again and again, and it's just leading everyone down a dead end road.
