* not comics: there will be a lot of opinion pieces about geek culture with the opening of the movie Ready Player One. Comics culture has changed as geek culture has changed. The good part of that is that it's no longer as exclusionary; two bad parts are that a hardcore few want it to be that way again and the whole conception of geek culture has a really unsophisticated view of consumption versus curation. People are into what they're into. All the people.
