Tom Spurgeon's Web site of comics news, reviews, interviews and commentary

February 28, 2006 on NYCC Publishing News

Although the big news of the weekend at New York Comic-Con was overcrowding and convention administration, the comics business and analysis site has filtered out a few of the more important news stories.

* Dark Horse expanding their manga output into multiple genres and publishing the critique-driven SS Magazine.

* The Marvel/Top Cow deal.

* MegaTokyo's move from Dark Horse to DC's CMX imprint.

The Dark Horse one interests me because Dark Horse had done well in the direct market with a lot of adventure titles, so publishing in multiple genres would seem to indicate some hunch on their part of either an expanded reach by the company into bookstores and/or a wider variety of titles doing well in the comic book shops.
