There's a great article by Heidi MacDonald over at Comics Beat, which includes a great graphic about the market and its amazing growth this past year. Basic news is, overall market returns showed a marked increase with the previously mentioned digital sales hitting $90 million and total sales up to $870 million. Despite the growing digital market and book store sales, comic shops still carry the bulk of those sales, which I'm hoping is translating into most shops doing well. Great to see! Goes to show comics are building their markets in all arenas, and the success of one is the success of all.
