Covid shutdown (fifteen days to flatten the curve), one year later and how it affected the comic book industry
  • Comic book sales are down 47% from 2019 sales (in dollars)
  • 10% of all US comic store closed in 2020 - Note; In a normal year approx 6% comic shops close or change hands, and approx the same amount of stores open as they do close. From March 2020 to March 2021 there was a imbalance of closing store to new store openings of 10%
  • Core stores numbers remain unchanged for the sixth year running at 786. We are a core store.  
  • Boom, Dark Horse, Image, Marvel, Scout, Vault (publishers) have all weathered the storm of 2020 and are looking at a bright 2021
  • IDW (publisher) has had there best year on record for the company.
Rumored - DC Comics is up for sale again.  As widely reported that DC publishing rights were being offered for sale in December to other publishers. With Marvel, confirming the rumor, said the prices cited were too high to strike a deal.

Now it's rumored that Robert Kirkman, creator of the Walking Dead and owner of Skybound publishing, and Steve Geppi, founder and owner of Diamond Distributors, Gemstone publishing, Diamond International Galleries, Hake's Americana & Collectibles auction house, Morphy Auctions, Geppi's Entertainment Museum in Baltimore and part owner of the Baltimore Orioles. are in talks to purchase DC Comics. 

Personal note: the transfer of DC publishing right would be a good thing, they need a real comic guy at the helm (yeah I'm talking about you Jim), that will/can run the company lean and mean. I just hope they keep on the interns that have been running DC since ATT fired all the senior editors, You guys have done a excellent job.  With some luck maybe they will move DC back to the east coast. DC went down hill after the move from NY to CA. This might help get some of the weird "synergy" ideas out of DC.

** Jeana S. at DC Entertainment, I'm still locked out of my BOX account, can you please bark at whoever you need too to take care of this... (I know your going to read this).  Thanks
