50 Comics Positives: Anders Nilsen Vs. Amazon


There's a lot of worry in the air about the long-term consequences of policies adopted by big digital and print players like Apple and as more and more of various markets is either won or given over to them. The artist Anders Nilsen sent out his own response in late June, and what I like about it is his finding a way to create a specific positive about the act of buying a workfrom people specifically motivated to sell a work for reasons other than some sort of incremental contribution to the bottom line.

I think a lot of cartoonists are thinking through in a variety of ways how to best approach and best support what used to the invisible mechanism of a sale, and I think it's a conversation that will become more intense of the next five years.
