2018 Set a New Comic Book Sales Record

2018 Set a New Comic Book Sales Record

The comic book industry had its strongest sales year ever in 2018, with total sales topping a previous record set in 2016. That’s according to a joint analysis by ICv2’s Milton Griepp and Comichron’s John Jackson Miller. Grieep and Miller estimate that total comic book and graphic novel sales in 2018 amounted to $1.095 billion. A little under half of those sales came from traditional comic book shops, while the remainder were through book channels (bookstores, online retailers, Scholastic book fairs, etc.), digital downloads and crowdfunding services like Kickstarter.

So far, over 50 games have been announced for the Oculus Quest, and many more will join the roster as the system matures. Oculus Quest comes in two different sizes: a 64GB and a 128GB version, costing $399 and $499 respectively. There are no wires to connect and the headset works without a phone or PC.

Far From Home Trailer Answers This Huge Endgame Question

Far From Home Trailer Answers This Huge Endgame Question

Namely, that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now a multiverse. The Marvel Cinematic Multiverse. Continue reading…
