Greetings Dieselfunkateers! The Dispatch is BACK! We are presently on the perpetual Matty’s Rocket Book Tour in California. It never really ends folks. Of course the Dieselfunk Dispatch continues. This time giving our breakdown on what makes up the Comic industry. I mean, you got your run of the mill floppies from the big majors and indie varieties, your thick ol graphic novels, and your prestigious format thingies. It’s enough to make a mug question just what is the Comic Book Industry? For the artists it means one thing, but for the publisher it means something altogether. Add in the digital disruption with distribution it makes for quite a tale. The Dieselfunk Dispatch goes in relatively deep, but simple enough for the regular reader to get an idea of how it goes down.

In the meantime I’ll go back down into the dungeon to get to work…:-)
