Not comics-related, but for those interested in publishing and some of the decisions involved in transitioning titles from publisher to publisher, I have some reminiscences on my personal site relating to the just-announced cancellation of Scrye: The Guide to Collectible Card Games, a magazine I edited from 1999-2001 and managed as part of a larger group for some years afterward. It was an unusual publication both as magazines and as products in the direct market go, with sales simultaneously in the newsstand market, the comics direct market, and through game distributors; the marketing requirements for one often posed challenges for the others.
Comichron founder John Jackson Miller has tracked the comics industry for more than 25 years, including a decade editing the industry’s retail trade magazine; he is the author of several guides to comics, as well as more than a hundred comic books for various franchises.
He is the author of novels including Star Wars: Kenobi, Star Wars: A New Dawn, Star Trek: Discovery – The Enterprise War, and his latest release, Star Trek: Discovery – Die Standing. Read more about them at his fiction site.
