Why Independent Comics Will Win

Why Independent Comics Will Win

Despite appearances I don't hate Marvel or DC. But when I think about the landscape of comics I can't help putting independent, creator-centric comics on one side, and corporate, Work-For-Hire comics, on the other.

And while there are definitely some great corporate comics, I have a difficult time looking past the way Marvel & DC, especially, dominated the industry for so long and left a lasting perception in popular culture that comics were just stories about superheroes - kid's fare. This impression is especially evident in the Big Two's control of the Direct Market.
