May '19 Comic Book Industry Round-Up - CAL #038

Comic Book Industry Round-Up for May 2019

Hello everyone! We're back with another Creator At Large All-Points Bulletin to help you keep up with all the news in the comic book industry so you can focus on everything else you already have to do.

As always we discuss the changes actively shaping the comic book industry through the major business news of the last month and try to get some useful takeaways from that news. Here's some of what we cover in this episode:

  • The state of comic distribution & retail

  • Baker & Taylor's cessation of wholesale distribution to retailers

  • The Oni + Lionforge merger

  • The indie mentality necessary to build a career in comics

  • One of the best ways to stay motivated over the long journey of creating comics

QUESTION: What do you make of the merger news?
