A Not So New Voice

I meant to point this out a few days ago, but not he's got another post up to comment on, so all the better. Robert Scott, proprietor of Comickaze Comics Books in San Diego has started up a blog. If you're interested in retailing comics in any way, shape or form, he's someone you need to get in touch with, if nothing else because he founded The Comic Book Industry Alliance, which is pretty much invaluable to store owners old and new.

I don't actually agree with some of his thoughts on Fell, mainly because I'm not particularly concerned that there's going to be a flood of $1.99 titles. Even if there are, I don't see this as a bad thing in and of itself. It simply becomes a matter of sorting out the wheat from the chaff, as with any other format. I do agree, though, that this is a title that could/should be used to expand the market given a focused marketing campaign (one that doesn't seem to be forthcoming).

Also, he's just started up a series on what's wrong with the market as it stands (presumably to be followed by how he'd fix it) that should prove interesting.
