The total number of comics is higher than any other in unadjusted dollars since the early 1990s. Comic book sales have recently reached an all-time high, but the success of the industry may be more important than it seems initially.

Are comics selling well?

The total number of comics is higher than any other in unadjusted dollars since the early 1990s. Comic book sales have recently reached an all-time high, but the success of the industry may be more important than it seems initially. Recently, I found this section one of the most interesting books, perhaps because the notion of comics diversified with respect to what I see mentioned here. There is no better example of the success of children's comics than Dav Pilkey's Dog Man books for young readers.

Even before they had order sheets with which you could buy specific books, but once I found the comic book store 15 miles away, I never shopped anywhere else. However, even though an LGBTQ comic doesn't sell much, the store owner is still under pressure to buy them. Although the articles referenced attribute the recent success of superhero comics to their film adaptation, neither of them attributes too substantial growth to popular books. I know people think that comic book journalists are the ones who are obsessed with sales lists, but publishers also secretly love them, when they give them the right to show off.

When local independent comic book stores opened, there were still comics on the supermarket checkout line. Perhaps it is wrongly stated that the success of the manga is a success for the comic book industry as a whole. I regularly browse the Comics %26 graphic novel section of the local importer of foreign books (online, I don't shop in my city). You've probably heard of comic book store owners kicking out their customers because they have a different political opinion.

The list goes on, but the point is that some comic book store owners make emotional decisions and that hurts their business. This may be subjective, and not exactly what you could accept as The Comic Book (where it happens to be a graphic novel), but I'll make a sketch. Comic book stores did not have foot traffic and therefore did not earn money and were therefore forced to close. Western comic artists and companies must stop pushing political agendas altogether and focus on telling good stories that people can identify with.
