Whit Taylor on Sustainability and the Convention Model

Whit Taylor at The Comics Journal wrote this beefy report on CAB and the convention model, and she asked questions that are pertinent to small publishers like me. Is the convention model sustainable? Can small publishers flourish, and can their audience grow? How can the small press stay small without being insular?

It was a great read for me because it got into the mechanics of small press comics distribution, a topic I really nerd out about. For me, an informative article with this kind of scope is pure gold. It would be right up my alley, even if I wasn’t quoted in it a few times.
