Posted on What is unfortunate is that back when eloppe tried to get anti-trust regulation to apply to the Diamond monopoly- it failed. If we had strong viable competition in the comics distro business, I think it would contribute to a healthier, well-rounded industry.On the whole I agree that we are in the Death-Rattle phase of direct sales. But not for all stores- there are a number of comics retailers out there who are very savvy and will be able to roll past success/history and diversity of marketing strategies to continue their longevity. POD services like Ka-Blamm's direct-to-retailer program will become more prevalent; some smart indy print and webcomic publishers will figure out a way to bridge the web divide with retailers to expand their markets and I imagine by the next 3-5 years a new retail system will assert itself.I agree wholehartedly; the whims of a single monolithic terrifying and often incompetent distributor should not be allowed any longer to curtail the natural and necessary growth of the artform/industry we all love to be a part of. Diamond has made enough dinosaur-moves and some frankly regressive, expansionist (and yes, ANTI-TRUST-ish)tactics for me to see its demise as justifiable.I hope that all of you comics editorial prognosticators, having clearly raised the lanterns and rang the klaxon enough times- will start to brain-dump the new manifesto(s) and theories of implementation for the new way to do business. We need some Bruce Sterlings to assert this stuff and get the conversation rolling yesterday.PAX PER COMIC LIBRI.

The CBE = Social Promotion

Comic bloggers of the World Wide Web unite! We all share a common interest – comics. Making them, reading them, loving them, or hating them, comics are what we’re all about. And it’s what our readers are all about too. Just like them, we’re fans and creators who are fans of creators (and sometimes creators of fans). So whether you’re a blogger looking to extend your readership, a small press creator trying to find the best sites to promote your book, or just a fanboy or fangirl looking for some buzz, social promotion is the way to bring us all together.
