Comic insider guru Scott McCloud is bang on on the big leagues with Disney merging with 21st century Fox.
Superhero movies are profitable ,but empty calories. They were snubbed by Oscars (example Batman Begins) except maybe technical awards.
On one hand, it slowly freed itself from Dark ages Comic codes era with more diversity on gender & race. On other hand, it starting to recycle itself & still perceived as old boys club & only for kids by serious reporters. Readership declined. More Direct sales comic stores shuttered by lowers sales to politically correct parental groups aided by justice system. Profitable independents still few & far between.
Digital comics finally sold online by Big two. However, net neutrality overturned by Trump's FCC make things way worse for David vs Goliath. Expensive to get into digital comics with hardware, software & technical manuals, but so was the analog version.
Recommended for all ages with its sly humor & clear presentation.

Scott McCloud tried to predict how comics might be affected by the advent of widespread internet use. He is surprisingly accurate in his predictions. I love the the way Scott turns the comic into an educational tool.
