Comic-Con International in Decline
While I was attending Special Edition: NYC last weekend, I talked to a lot of creators about the Big One — Comic-Con International in San Diego — which is only a few weeks away.
And I heard from more than one artist that — much like Marvel/Disney, who announced a pull-out earlier in the year — they were either pulling the plug this year or that this would likely be their last year exhibiting at the convention.
And all of the stories lined up along the same axis: Profit. (Or lack thereof.)
