What Angouleme Taught Me About the American Comic Industry

Since the year started I've been writing a lot about the problems the industry faces, the opportunities we have, and the ways in which we can make the industry better.

Looking to familiarize myself with the world of comics beyond the United States I made a point of attending Angouleme, otherwise known as the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée  (FIBD).

The comics readership has been limited for a while. Partially this is our own fault - because of our own inability to look past the Direct Market, to the other avenues available to us. 

But Stela is trying to change that. They're a new company working to put comics in front of a much broader audience by tailoring the comics they'll publish to the mobile experience and making them easily accessible to potential readers there.
