Well after what they seen what Ethan has done making like over a million dollars on his campaigns why wouldn't the individual comic book creators go solo pretty much? They get 100% of the profit, it's a win win to them.

I would agree that DC Comics publishing is in big trouble. Aside from James Tynion IV, Scott Synder, Ram V, and Bendis have announced creator-owned comics. Scott Synder has double dipped into DC Comics and his creator-owned stuff for a while. I have no idea who the f*** Ram V is. Bendis will probably double dip with DC Comics and his creator-owned stuff, because he seems to churn out stories like crazy.

Things are so bad for DC Comics publishing…that they're going to give free access to over 300 titles and graphic novels, if you register for DC FanDome 2021. While it's free registration and lots of free comics, WB will have your info to Spam you and to sell to other Spammers.

I'm not sure about Marvel. Marvel just announced a bunch of 82nd anniversary miniseries and one shots for the end of 2021 and beginning of 2022, which includes Devil's Reign by Chip Zdarsky. Chip Zdarsky has done some stuff for DC Comics, while also doing Daredevil…so who knows with him. Marvel realizes that what Jason Aaron did to She-Hulk was horrible, so they're trying to fix that. For Hickman, after doing the Fantastic Four, the X-Men franchise, and the Avengers…what other high-profile Marvel teams are there to write for Marvel? I doubt that Hickman would be inspired to write either Guardians of the Galaxy, the Defenders, or the Champions. Hickman seems to like epic team story arcs, so I don't think he'd be happy writing a solo title.

I'm personally hoping that with Mark Waid returning to DC Comics that he becomes the new Publisher. He can clean house, and then hopefully get Zdarsky, Hickman, Gail Simone, John Byrne, Roger Stern, and others to work for the new DC Comics. I hoping for this, because I don't believe Jim Lee was involved in announcement the line-up for DC FanDome 2021.

You know, people say gatekeeping is bad, but if the gatekeepers of "respect of the material" and "merit" were in place we wouldn't be in this situation. Certainly better gatekeepers than the currently employed "muh politics".
Remember. "Evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant, then it tries to silence good."

Marvel and DC: Don't worry everyone, we're just going through a stump.

Shonen Jump: A stump huh?! More like a forest fire, cause you two are burning your money to the ground with these comics.

They salty that they didn't get a deal with substack. It's funny because the ones whining are the reason why Marvel and DC are in the toilet.

SO you're saying the first to complain about gate keeping are wannabe gate keepers? Who would have thought?

They're "effed" cause years ago they decided to alienate and target their main audience with disposable income: Middle aged men. Period. As soon as I met girls who liked me in high school, I quit reading comics for years, and now that I'm middle-aged I'm back to reading comics. Kids and middle-aged men. That IS your audience Marvel and DC. Really that simple.

If I had the money, I'd buy both Marvel and DC comics to go into a lay off rampage… I'd purge the shit out of all the SJWs, they have no place in the entertainment industry!

No, even though I don't like much of the content they have been producing lately they still hold all the relevant IPs.

I’ve been wanting to write a novel for awhile but was always put off by the idea of publishers and how hard it would be for my novel to even get noticed. Substack seems like a cool place, I might check it out as a means to publish my novel myself

Ok, what i see is something different. This is going to be a wakeup call for Marvel and DC. Lets remember these are businesses. They are loosing money, now staff are being "head hunted" so they are losing what they will realize are their "best" staff.

When this starts happening in "the real world", 2 things happen, either A- the company is shut down, because owners/board see no way for it to recover at that point. Or B- massive restructuring. The firing of editors, new management being brought in drives to bring in "new blood" to take the business in a new direction, a mix of hiring and layoffs, as they look to change how the company works.

The concept of Get Woke Go Broke… may just be a catch phrase, but under corporate restructuring with a direction change to how and what is accepted and published, could see DC and Marvel starting to do stories similar to Manga, not in art, but in context and content…

if Marvel and DC is going to continue being tone-deaf with the REAL comic book fans and readers then let them fall apart for all i care. they won't bother taking down notes on how and why manga is so successful.
