Transmedia: How the Comics Creator Universe is Expanding

From cratering sales to diminishing creative returns, comic books seem headed for extinction. But comics-based everything else — from blockbuster movies to television series and beyond — is going gangbusters.

Matt Pizzolo, that’s who. “Anyone who loves comics and sees them as a vital art form capable of telling unique and challenging stories must recognize that [the industry’s] business corpse has to be put out of its misery so a new one can be built,” said Pizzolo, a publisher and filmmaker who has been busy engineering the transmedia spine that will take comics into the future.
