I haven’t linked to many mainstream press articles in a number of years, but I am pleased to share this piece from today’s San Francisco Chronicle on the bounceback of the comics retail industry in that region.
Not simply because of its thesis, which I agree with, but also because it’s a bit of a reunion of the crew from the late Comics & Games Retailer magazine, which I edited for many years. Brian Hibbs wrote the “Tilting at Windmills” column, which was reprinted in two volumes from IDW — and, of course, Joe Field was the mind behind Free Comic Book Day, which he initially suggested in the pages of the magazine.
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.
