Baltimore Comic Con 2014: Comics by the Numbers Panel

Over this past year, the comic landscape has changed as diversity has spread across the comic pages, as well as behind the scenes with the creators making them. Though a stereotype persists of the “comic reader,” the characters are reflecting the real diverse audience. At this past weekend’s Baltimore Comic Con 2014, The Beat‘s Heidi MacDonald and I discussed the comic audience, where we presented hard data (and the comics history of it) showing that comic readership is more diverse than ever and there’s more going on than grabbing headlines when decisions are made.

Thank you all who came out to watch and asked some great questions.

Below you can see the slide shows that were presented, so you can follow along!
