In his regular column in CBR, Erik Larsen weighs in on using celebrities to help promoting comics. Question is though, are local publishers & creators willing to approach them with the right promotional strategy? Perhaps its time Malaysian comics expand their promos into a broader spectrum other than print. The drug of choice today is still the idiot box, possibly now and forever. The sensation of visual and audio fed directly to my brain while my body vegetates on a couch is high on the list of civilized modern pleasures.
Personally, I feel that television will still be king, followed by the internet followed by magazines. Newspapers and radio is pretty much dead anyway and who actually eyeballs the promo at the back of your comic?
What do you think?
