It was already a struggling corpse. Corona just delivered a major blow.

That along with online pirating and pandering to groups who don't buy comics.

@fmen2016: No, it needs to die. A better and more improved comic industry must take its place. Greatest civilizations fell to dark ages and were destroyed by a better and more advanced civilization.

Well, in my country there is no comic shop, and online shops are way too expensive. Because of that, I don't mind reading pirated ones.

Don't worry about it. I pirate stuff all the time as well. There's no shame in not financially supporting a product you don't feel deserves your support or if you're unable to.

@arranvid: I think we all do as far as that goes , but there needs to be a change , like getting rid of the SJWs & hire real writers that are not Mark Wade , Brain M Bendus & Dan Slot , get rid of TDS out of the issue , listen to the fans to a point

Nah it was. High prices driving people to pirate shrinked the market. Then cost cutting and ideological hiring made them hire shitty writers which drove even more people away. Not to mention the toxic behavior off the employees who turned a great community into a wastebath.

They're not really going to get many good writers. Good writers cost money and they'd have to raise the price of books more which the high price has already drove so many to piracy. Manga can be cheaper because they don't also have to pay inkers and other such.

That's optimistic but not realistic. Some people might pay for a good story, but a lot would rather pirate it or simply do without. I haven't kept up with comics in a long time because of the price, not the writers/stories etc. Quality writing could help, in theory, but that's only part of the equation.

Let me add a bit more to this. Not only is it the high prices but the high prices to quantity of material.

I've stopped buying myself for several reason so i'm not up to date on the recent prices but isn't it like 4 dollars for a 20 page book? That's ridiculous.

@dernman: you are right , but D.C comics are 32 pages ,but that is small side note , Pirate have around as far back as Long John Silver , but I rather spend $4.00 on a good story that is written well with out SJW /TDS that comes with that ,then the crap that is our there now , OK like Jaw breakers or Cyber frog the store is OK & art work good I would pay $4.00 or more
