The “Death” of indie comics?
Posted By Matt-M-McElroy On January 22, 2009 @ 7:49 am In Blogs | 2 Comments
Basically Diamond has raised its minimum order level quite a bit and many of the small press/indie comics don’t sell enough to meet the new levels. This means several of these titles won’t be on the local shelves of your comic shop. You can check out Newsarama ‘s interview with Diamond’s Bill Schanes  for a bit more information.
I haven’t actually been in a local comic shop for some time. However, I still enjoy supporting small press comic publishers whenever I can. I buy them at conventions like Wizard World Chicago  and occasionally directly from the publisher’s website.
Here at Flames Rising we are hoping to further support small press comics with new comic reviews  and the occasional promotion. If you have a favorite Horror or Dark Fantasy comic, we encourage you to write up a review and send it our way.
So, what do you think, are indie comics dead? Why or why not?
