I got the post card for the Philadelphia Comic Con this week. On the front, there are 10 small pictures of comic creators. On the back, a ton of actors, actresses and wrestlers.
I’m not the first person to complain about this. And no offense to Pam Grier, but how are we supposed to keep the comic industry afloat when you have to bring in non-comic related celebrities to boost sales?
You want more people to come to your shows, so you grab some movie stars. That raises the prices. Which raises the ticket prices for the people who are only going to see comics. And it reduces the amount of money with which they buy comics.
I guess it could be argued that without the stars, the shows might go bankrupt.
