Yes, comic books are still being published. New ones. I do not know what the readership is like for them any more. In the 1980's, it was estimated that there were perhaps one million readers out there. Since then, with the internet, with video games, with so many more accoutrements, who knows what the numbers are like now.
I have a house full of them, and every year at Hallowe'en I give a bunch of them away to the kids. They go nuts over them. I am getting a reputation in the neighbourhood as the comics guy.
I just now had an online chat via facebook with a guy named Jim Salicrup, who is now editor-in-chief of Papercutz comics in New York. I just visited their website and they have some interesting stuff including, new Tales from the Crypt stories. Yes! Books first published in the 1950's have been revived.
Check out their website. I have, and will be back.
Mr. Salicrup says he will check out my blog. I hope he does and likes it.
Thanks for the info on Papercutz.
I'll have to check out the Zorro book.
