Monday Comic: Shtinky Situation

In other news,X-men:Misfits 2nd volume will not be printed. This is such sad news. Although sales were good (on the NYT Bestseller list for a few weeks), it apparently wasn't good enough to keep the series going. What's even more disheartening is that the books were scanned and shared via torrents... which means -- yeah, there's an audience, but no money to back up the production at Del Rey. Especially with the added costs of licensing the Marvel characters for use.

So everyone loses. We never see the conclusion to the series, the authors and artists' hands are tied, and Del Rey loses money on their own investment.


I understand that we live in a world that de-values media. We all treat movies, tv, music, books, comics, and even games as practically "free for all." But when we don't even bother to patronize those things we love, we can't complain when they fall to the wayside.
