Actually, I think this may be a good thing. Where ELSE were the new fans going to come from? Not every one of us is going to have children, and parents today sure don't have any reason to go into a comic shop.

Now, if only they could get these new books into bookstores and 7-11s. THAT'S where the customers are! They need to be THERE.

I don't know. The phrasing of his comment about Go! and Unlimited made it sound to me like the Johnny DC line was losing the titles, not that they were being cancelled. 'Course, they did clarify that Go! wasn't canceled and didn't do that withUnlimited so maybe it is gone...

Most bookstores I've seen are good about having collections, sometimes even the comics themselves. Gas stations are probably a thing of the past because comics don't cost enough to justify the shelf space (that's why the direct market came into being, after all). But really, when talking about exposing future generations to comics, digital is where it is at.

Let's see, when I was a kid, I didn't have to nor desired to read the "Super Friends" book or the Electric Company version of Spider-man. No, I read the real mainstream books because they were not written down nor drawn down to the level of a 6 year old. It's sad that to appeal to kids at all, they think they have to dumb the book down and they dumb it down too far. JLU actually was a decent book and kid friendly. And they dumb it down even more to the point that no kid over 7 would actually be interested in getting it. It's sad that the mainstream books are aimed at 30 year olds with big budgets instead of using the adult imprints to aim for that market and not their Flashes, Captain Marvels, etc.

If they want to aim the books towards young kids, maybe they should actually read some of the kids and youth books. They are far more sophisticated these days in both storytelling AND art than what these appear to be.
