only adults read comic books until I read Forbes
According to Bookscan data shared at the conference, kid-oriented comics and graphic novels account for a whopping 41% of sell-through at bookstores; manga is 28%. Superhero content is less than 10%, down 9.6% year-over-year.
it’s clear that the popularity of younger-reader material has accelerated with the unprecedented success of Dav Pilkey’s latest Dog Man graphic novel (initial print run: 5 million) and YA graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier’s latest, *Guts *, rocketing to the top of the overall bestseller list in its first week of release.
Dog Man* sold 5 million while Batman and other DC and Marvel titles sold only over thousands. seems that Dog Man more popular than batman. yes, it is sad and disappointing.
good thing DC has Zoom and Ink imprint hope that help keep growing.
I read another site they plan more Comic books in the bookstores I am sure they will change better superheroes comics in the future.
