It was ten years or more ago that I predicted all of this. Go back and check the posts. I've repeated these things over and over since and in a way I hate that I was right.
My annual British Comics Industry Report, issued every year from 1995 and sent to UK publishers, went from 54% accuracy at the beginning to 100% toward the end.
Everything that happened to British comics and what killed them off and even the rise of the No Idea About Comics Small Pressers -all predicted.
Others are NOW catching on.
Now, if you are a serious comics company -employ me and avoid the problems -40 years plus of experience here!
