None of the above. I think Disney will buy DC Entertainment and merge it with Marvel, as I've predicted for a while now.

For the comics, this will probably mean you won't see so many ongoings launched that everyone knows are going to fail anyway. I think they'll wise up and adopt my idea of recurring minis. So, instead of a Martian Manhunter ongoing that will just awkwardly peter out, you'll see an occasional MM mini of just enough issues to collect as a TPB.

On a related note, my LCS posted on Facebook (my mother had to tell me because I'm not on socials) that there's a 50% chance they're being bought by the end of the month. Not sure if that means they're gone completely if they're not bought.

Most Likely: DC is publishing only a dozen or so printed titles and a few others are digital-only. More titles go directly to retailers like WalMart and Target.


Somewhat likely, but currently complicated: AT&T gets to the point where they're ready to part with the IP of DC Comics. Obviously, this has much less to do with comics than TV and movies. Disney might decide that the potential is too tempting to pass up, but with the havoc that the pandemic has brought down on theaters and production, I doubt that Disney is ready to pull the trigger right now.

This. Cut backs, but not total stopping of monthlies.

Yeah, if that had been an option, I would have voted for it. As it is, "no change" seemed closer to what I expect than any of the other options.

Dead. At&t are laying off a bunch of workers because they're losing so much money. They'll only keep this money pit alive for so long.

The basic appeal of illustrated stories is just as popular, if not more popular, than it's ever been. But the industry is undergoing major shifts due to outside forces.
