Companies That Make Comics Just to Make Movies Are Not Doing Well — Good!

Heidi MacDonald puts the nail in the coffin of companies set up to make comics so they can sell movies with a great analysis of Radical Publishing.

The way I figure it, the more publishers I can ignore entirely in Previews, the easier it is to get through the 400-page catalog every month.

    Yeah, I don’t buying a GN and discovering I’m helping to finance a movie pitch. It’s sole purpose is to convince a Hollywood exec to put money towards buying the rights and making it. That I might be entertained by it is an inconsequential byproduct.

    Is that sarcasm? I can’t tell.

  3. Jamie Coville Says:

    Nope. I’m a lot more careful about what books I buy now. I might have per-ordered a new book or just bought something off the shelf without really looking at it. I don’t do that anymore.

    Thanks for clarifying. It’s true, companies that act in poor faith end up poisoning the well for others.
