Is another market crash coming?

Brian Hibbs

There are signs in the air, I think — read Tilting at Windmills #237 on Comic Book Resources.

Tilting #234 is up!

Brian Hibbs

Death. To. The. Penny! And more more more on the second store (store store). Find it at Comic Book Resources, though you MAY post here if you prefer not to there (but the community there IS much improved lately) -B

Brian Hibbs

Yay, the longest thing I write every year. Man, I didn’t AT ALL have the time to write this one, either. Go read it, then let me know what you think…… -B

Tilting at Windmills #229 is up!

Brian Hibbs

This is how you know I am beyond overworked right now — I totally forgot to link to the new column on CBR. My opening thoughts on running two stores. (GOD, I AM SO TIRED AND OVERWORKED, it isn’t even funny!!!!) Read it, love it, comment here, if you like -B

Tilting at Windmills #228 is live

Fantagraphics’ kickstarter, and how OGNs are a terrible terrible business model. Read it on CBR, and you may comment here if you like. -B

Tilting #227 is up!

Brian Hibbs

You wanted my postmortem on Villains Month?  How about “The Bucket Theory”?  All of this, and (not) more is now up on CBR! You can comment here if you don’t want to there. -B

Tilting #226 is up!

Brian Hibbs

Forgot to post this earlier — the newest TILTING is up at CBR, on liquidating books and stuff.  SEXY TOPIC! Comment and let me know that people do read what I write…   -B

Tilting #225: Cover Design 101

Brian Hibbs

Like always, it is at Comic Book Resources. How does your store rack? -B

TIlting at Windmills #224 is up : on DC’s Villain Month

Brian Hibbs

You can always find it over at Comic Book Resources I really think I killed on this one, BTW — let me know what you think.

TILTING AT WINDMILLS #223 is live!

Brian Hibbs

As always, you can find it at Comic Book Resources.   Quick addition to the piece: One other thing that I forgot to mention in the piece is that “A series of mini-series” is the WORST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS. See, what happens with POS systems is that they track “series” by an internal number assigned by Diamond called a series code.  However, each mini-series RESETS that series code, making it more difficult to track subscription orders, or to see changes in the series over time, etc. Things like, say, BPRD, which was producing at least 12 issues a year, but renumbering them every few months, didn’t show any native relationship to one another when looked up… unless the retailer…  Read More…

It has been a little while, but here’s a new TILTING AT WINDMILLS, wherein we show the inherent value of conflict! Not a single comment in the CBR thread, gotta love it! -B

BookScan 2012: important addendum

Brian Hibbs

It was observed to me by a third party that for a good part of 2012 Barnes & Noble was not stocking the “top 100″ DC Comics, which I entirely forgot about in my BookScan 2012 report. There are published reports that say that this ended at the end of June 2012, but there’s also reports from everyone’s favorite muckraker, Rich Johnston, that some/much of the books were returning to some B&N locations before 2011 even ended. What does this actually do to the charts?  I have no real idea. Typically 4th quarter is the strongest sales quarter, so, in theory, this should have impacted DC’s 2011 numbers much stronger than 2012, but even that’s uncertain — how much demand…  Read More…

Tilting #221 — BookScan 2012 is live

Brian Hibbs

You can find it at Comic Book Resources. That represents like twenty hours of my life in the writing, so I hope you find some useful intelligence in it!   -B

New Tilting is up

Brian Hibbs

Talking about Marvel NOW! and it is available, as usual, at CBR. Comment here if you can’t over there. -B

Tilting #219 is up

Brian Hibbs

You can, as always, read it at Comic Book Resources.  Feel free to comment here, if you like. Spurgeon got what I was trying to say; somewhat predictably the readers at CBR seem to have not.   -B

TILTING #218 is up

Brian Hibbs

As always, it is at Comic Book Resources — feel free to comment here if you can’t / won’t there (though there’s already a healthy early AM debate going on in the comments, it looks like)   -B

Tilting #217 is live

Brian Hibbs

Mm, look, it’s up! A (full-on) rant on the subject of variant covers, it’s be at my prickliest. If you can’t/won’t comment at CBR, feel free to do so below. -B

New Tilting is, in fact, up (it is #216)

Brian Hibbs

Hey, for once I’m actually awake/at the computer late enough on a Thursday night to actually see my name in lights, at the very top of CBR. Click that shit, and read some thoughts about DC’s reboot, a year into it. Comment here if you, y’know, won’t do the CBR thing (I get it, I get it!)   -B

Newest TILTING is up!

Brian Hibbs

You can find it at Comic Book Resources. I discuss what I perceive as the marketing and branding failure for “Marvel NOW!”. I’ve hit some sort of nerve, as it’s already got 25 responses before 9 am…. As always, feel free to comment here if you don’t/can’t reply there.   -B

Newest Tilting is up

Brian Hibbs

Coincidentally running the same day as the creator roundtable, I talk about why creator-owned comics (and Walking Dead #100 in particular) is great news for retailers. Go read, and let me know what you think!   -B

New Tilting is up!

Brian Hibbs

You can read the latest right here, as I talk about FCBD, changes at DC Entertainment, Diamond’s breaking street date, and some bits on digital. I’m a little behind on writing reviews (as I pretty much haven’t read any comics yet this week [it's been hectic], but I expect I’ll get something up BEFORE the next batch arrives, just watch me! -B
