    September 14, 2012 2:02 am I was fortunate enough to attend the Locke & Key Panel at SDCC this year. Hill said that he may write future stories that are set in the past looking at other events at Key House. These would be similar to 'Guide to the Known Keys' and 'Grindhouse.' Specifically he mentioned a mini-series set during WWII. But he did not say anything specific about when or even if this would become a reality.
    October 3, 2011 12:49 pm So I know that the 'scanners' can generally get access to private/better/faster file sharing networks. So there may be some truth to your idea. However, the 'not as good' networks are still really fast at providing content. If a book is mainstream with a large readership it will often be up the same night the book came out. I do think scanners tend to take pride in their work, as they will often add a tag as the last page of a comic, (in the past some would add their logo to the cover, often over the bar code, but I think this is less common now). I am also fascinated by the idea of WHY people scan. Though I also have a hunch (and its nothing more than that) that there are not that many scanners total.

    July 1, 2010 4:07 am The sailors are Soviet not Nazi, though there is a Nazi connection. Solid story, stands alone well, but with very slight connections to the B.P.R.D. 1940's stories for the logtime reader (and Prof. O'Donnell who is mentioned is important in other BPRD books assuming it is the same guy). Cannot wait to see how this wraps up.

    September 15, 2009 4:41 am About Hellboy The Wild Hunt 6, as far as I can recall (and I reread all of the Hellboy line recently) Morgan Le Fey has not shown up until now. Conor was thinking of Baba Yaga, the Russian witch who helped Rasputin. Oh and I also thought it was one of the best Hellboy issues in a long time.

    There is a growing group of comic readers who are increasingly comfortable with reading comics in digital format. By this I mean there are those of us out there who have little interest in 'owning' the vast majority of comics we read, and are quite comfortable to stare at a screen.

    I for one did not grow up reading comics. In college I was told that I had to read Gaiman's Sandman. Did they have the trades? Nope just some pirated files. I have no idea how many people started reading comics through digital means, but among the people I knew in college there were a significant number.

    I do not mean to justify piracy by claiming it brings new readers (in my experience people who start digital stay digital). Rather there is a whole group of comic readers who have only ever read their comics digitally.

    I think in time legal digital distribution must happen. I would happily pay to read legal comics online. Since many readers are already waiting to buy the trades, digital distribution need not be released the same day as the 'real' comic. I think a dual distribution system is viable, at least in the short term. Comic readers who have always gone to the local comic store on Weds will continue going, but other people are happy to read and not own. I feel that the solution to piracy is not to fight it per-se, but rather to develop creative ways to channel pirates into legitimate channels. People will follow the path of least resistance. If Marvel’s digital distribution were more convenient than piracy I think many people would switch.

    Another issue in piracy not mentioned yet is obscure older issues. Sure almost everything gets a trade now, but what about older comics. But even if someone is able to track down the original issues, at this point none of the people who worked on the book get any money from it. Is digital distribution a viable way for publishers to get money from long out of print comics?

    Any info on how well Marvel.com is doing?

    Sorry if someone has alread segested something similar, but perhaps you could think about adding a suplimental podcast.

    As I see it, the weekly podcast is for the new weekly comics and the videocast is for large topics. The Mini served a different function, it allowed you 3 as individuals to talk about whatever you wanted.

    Perhaps semi-regular or even not so regular short (10-15min) podcasts could allow you to rant on more 'out there' topics that an individual but not all 3 care about. Also with Sonia filling in on Ep151, perhaps these shorter pieces could also be an audio forum for other staff members who have something they want to say.
