There’s always a new audience though, Scott Forman
Remember that comics are designed for kids for many the enthusiasm continues.
It’ll be hard to entertain *you* because you’ve seen so much, but it’s always entertaining for somebody if they do it right.
You just might be needing something ‘more’ for yourself, but the market for Joseph Campbellesque tales won’t likely die, even with the growing absurdist tastes of GenZ being raised on the Internet and Youtube.
Part of me believes that someday the indie will rise and overthrow formula, but I think that’s just my inner Marxist at work, likely being trained to think that way from school. My inner capitalist knows that people like a simple story told with as much bombastic fury the current technology can throw at it and the appetite for such isn’t like to dwell down anytime soon.
But perhaps as the capabilities of technologies improve, people *will* create their own stories and tell them, and in fact they already are – except now it’s not for money (outside of sponsor ads) on Youtube.
To me though, like with music and soundcloud vs the industry, the industry will just have to up their game and they do. Too much money at stake for them not to.
But at least now there’s a BIT of democratization of creativity and I’m grateful for that. I love amateur stuff. Some people like everything professionally done. Different strokes for different folks.
