Missed It: Mike Richardson on Comics

imageDark Horse head honcho Mike Richardson splits this Comic Book Resources interview between a forthcoming project with new candidate for hardest-working-man status Rick Geary and the state of the market. He fairly echoes Marvel's Dan Buckley on pursuing new audiences through existing practices, and also speaks a bit to Dark Horse's strategy of finding stand-alone concepts over more systemic or even creator-driven placement, with a stark example being the stripping down of a long-planned superhero line down to its more successful books. Does anyone know if the sales figures back up Richardson's statement about their superhero line, particularly through the life of all those titles? I don't think he's being untruthful, but there's room there for him to have finessed tthe point.
