I watch what Marvel and DC are doing, and there’s a pretty significant part of me that says we’re edging toward another crash again. One that, perhaps, won’t be as bad as some previous ones, because there are fewer speculators out there, and stores aren’t overbuying in that exact manner — but ‘Death By A Thousand Paper Cuts’ has always been how most stores have crippled themselves. Each and every month I pull nearly a long-box of unsold, and unsalable, comics from my racks at both stores — it’s a pretty scary amount of stuff when you think, ‘Oh, that box could be a car payment!’ — and I’ve figured out more ways to monetize that crusty biffage than many of my contemporaries.
