iHertz Band. 40 is releasing today (19/05)~ Kirara looks so cuuuute!
I haven’t been following the manga in the mag lately, but on their website they said this is an extra/last chapter. Hope it doesn’t end, i really like this manga!
Not much difference from when i last posted the recruitment ad with my manga stash from the last 4 months, but i did a tidy up today cleared up some stuff, and yes i throw out some today. Was a hard decision but i have no space! Plus i have to prepare space for next few months… Also, This view is right behind my desk. And when you have so much mags in one room it doesnt matter if i deodorise the room, all i smell is the smell of paper and the bad smell of ink. Im really sensitive to smell and this is definitely one of the cons of buying so aggressively. /sigh
To date, these are 4 months worth of manga and i did a count, (gosh it was tiring moving them around!) What you see here are about 100 copies of manga mags…
I think if i just post the pic without any description, would i be mistaken for a manga seller? LOL…
god it’s like unnnnbelievable how messed the american print comic industry is. so much of it is predicated on like, not coming to the markets out there, but trying to make them come to what you’re already making? there’s a lot of reasons why comics ended up with the core buying base they did when they used to have buyers in the millions (those problems being sourced back to the 70s crash, 80s direct market rise, and subsequent fuck ups like the speculator market), but you get to this modern industry that just refuses to budge more than an inch.
people screaming for diverse characters, different kinds of stories, and they throw them out here and there but mostly without getting behind them in marketing and promoting them - only Ms. Marvel really got marvel’s back pushing behind it, while a bunch of other titles, like fan-favorite X-Men Storm, got thrown into the deep end of the pool with almost zero promotional and marketing push. and then when it fails, they blame people for not buying it and it gives them justification to not do it again, even when they publish a new Punisher series just about every year or every other year, despite the fact that his sales have not been good in the least lately, even under fan favorite writers like Greg Rucka.
and the real fucked up thing is that hold onto the 3.99 (and rising) price point, which is tied into just how fucked up the core market is, which goes back to that 70s crash and a bunch of other problems. the new buyers all come from being able to buy collected volumes of about 200 pages of comics for 10 dollars a pop, and you’re trying to sell them 22 pages for 4 dollars - even on digital versions of the comic? it’s just not gonna work out, at all. and then they blame the buyers again, when it’s just like, dude, who wants to pay that much for 10 minutes of reading when that 4 dollars gets way more entertainment bang for their buck just about everywhere else? that’s a dollar short of buying me a giant bomb subscription. it’s half of what it’d cost to get many Shonen Jump volumes. i could buy a couple episodes of TV on amazon or itunes or whatever with that.
the core market is fucked in a way that cheap anthology comics styled after SJ and other manga mags aren’t likely to work out, but the buyers have shown, time and again, they are willing to buy - by the bucketloads, especially if you remember Runaways’ TPB sales - affordable collected versions of the comics. especially if the stuff is actually built to appeal to them. millions of people love superheroes, even, but they don’t all love the same superhero style of stories.
and it’s just “no, no, come to us and our 3.99 comics and support the crap and maybe we’ll make something you like”. you see this a lot in creators in the biz who urge you again and again to support the big 2′s attempts at diversifying and that they “go where the money is” but it turns out they only go where that money is if you approach it strictly on their terms.
and then, not even that holds up. cuz while Ms. Marvel is a smash fucking hit and you’d think that’d inspire Marvel to make a bunch of similar books to milk that for all its worth, their response instead is fucking… “put Ms. Marvel in everything” and “let’s give Black Knight, of all people, his own fucking book”.
and they want you to pay 3-4 bucks for each issue, in both physical or digital form.
they don’t want to come to you, they want you to come to them.
I’ve just started to get a good look at the pamphlets from the event, and this one tells of two new Psycho-Pass manga.
A manga version of Psycho-Pass 2 (mangaka: Hashino Saru) will start on the November issue of Monthly Comic Garden. A new spin-off manga, Gakuen Psycho-Pass (mangaka: Soga Shiina), will be available in Comic Blade Online Magazine starting 6 October.
The November issue of Monthly Comic Garden will also include a Kanshikan Kougami Shinya substitute cover.
…and it also looks like the Psycho-Pass manga currently under Mag Garden will also be made available online briefly when they get released…
