Some quick comics links
- According to Heidi McDonald at The Beat!, Publisher's Weekly will launch their own comics-related newsletter, the appropriately titled Comics Weekly. You don't have to be a subscriber in order to get the newsletter, so feel free to sign up.
- There's been a big brouhaha on the Net recently over Diamond's new sales standards. Basically the comics distributor (pretty much the only comics distributor of any serious significance) announced that books that earn less than $600 will be dropped from their catalog. You can read about it here, here, here, here, here and here. As someone who's not actively involved in the industry, I don't have too much to add on my own, but it's certainly an interesting story to follow for anyone who cares about the future of independent and small press comics.
