Nate Powell And His Dry Erase Board Sends Everyone In The Industry To Bed With Headaches


Brian Fies has the strongest contextual post about these dire figures from cartoonist Nate Powell, riffing on some lowball expectations for writing that came out in the UK this wee. This reminds me that there were about a half-dozen established pro that at some point in the month of December admitted to radically re-thinking the place of comics in their creative careers. There have also been some retailers asking for broader industry change. It's not a great situation out there in terms of feeling positive about the return that comics may bring, and that provides psychic wear and tear left unchecked. Be careful out there, and nice to one another.
