Re: Are weekly comics doomed?

no but I think major things need to change to stop the last one going. The main change is marketing/shop displays (see my latest post in the Beano board as a good example).

Went in today & only 2 copies of weekly & 5 of Dennis, Hope they continue with these stand alone stands...

New Comic Display's at Asda

At last we have some progress, went into my local Asda yesterday & they now have a large cardboard stand with Kids comics emblazed on it with about 9 different titles on it. The Beano only had three issue left which is good if we could get all supermarkets to adopt this way going forward, I think it...

Re: Digital Dandy

Spencer you have a good point, we are dealing with the dreaded DCT marketing department here who do not have a good record. There needs to be a lot more free interaction on the main website for a start you need to be drawing people in & wanting them to come back & buy a subscription which then opens...

Re: More news on the relaunch

March can't come any quicker, really looking forward to this relaunch King Cobra looks amazing and had so much potential that DCT missed I think. John Freeman & Co really need a pat on the back for sticking in there & carrying on regardless. Its deserves a lot of success... :D

Re: Digital Dandy

Lew, I'm not saying its the only reason but I feel its one of the main reasons, it is shown that a lot of today's kids are introduced to comics by there parents, grandparents (As i was by my grandad) & having some kind of familier look/characters helps. You can pick up any Beano from say 1975 to 201...
