Comic Book Industry ‘Cancel Pigs’ Now Want Us to Sing Kumbaya?!


ComicsPRO was this past weekend, and the takeaway was that the entire “comics community” needs to pull together and fix the ailing comic book industry. Where was a call for unity and comradery a year ago? Five years ago? When the “cancel pigs” were trying to run anybody out of the industry they didn’t like? Is it too little, too late?

Additional Context:
Ah, the impassioned plea from ComicsPRO’s recent gathering, echoing through the halls of the comic book industry, isn’t just a flare shot into the night sky; it’s a clarion call that’s perhaps overdue but undeniably urgent. This weekend past, the ComicsPRO event didn’t just serve as a convivial meet-up for industry insiders but as a pivotal moment of reckoning for the comic book realm. The message? A robust summons for unity and camaraderie to resuscitate the flagging veins of this beloved industry.

But where does this sudden appeal for industry-wide kumbaya come from? And more pertinently, where was this rallying cry when it might have been even more critical? Flashback a year, five years even, and the landscape was markedly different. The specter of “cancel culture” loomed large, with individuals and factions within the community ready to oust anyone who didn’t fit a particular mold or ideology. It was a time of division, where the line between ‘us’ and ‘them’ was drawn with a heavy hand, and the idea of unity seemed as distant as the concept of a blockbuster comic book movie flop.

The call for unity at ComicsPRO starkly highlights this shift in narrative. But it begs the question: Is this call to arms, this plea for unity and cooperation, a case of too little, too late? The comic book industry, much like the superheroes that grace its pages, has faced its share of villains. From the digital revolution that threatened traditional print to the global pandemic that shuttered stores and delayed distribution, the industry has been navigating a gauntlet of challenges. Add to this the internal skirmishes and the fracturing within the community, and it’s clear the industry is at a crucial juncture.

Yet, the essence of comic books has always been about overcoming the insurmountable, about heroes finding a way to triumph against the odds. This call for unity, albeit delayed, could be the first step toward addressing the systemic issues plaguing the industry. It’s an acknowledgment that the path to revival doesn’t lie solely in digital innovation or market expansion but in healing the community itself.

The irony, of course, is that the comic book industry, which has always championed stories of unity, teamwork, and the triumph of good over evil, finds itself in need of those very principles. The call at ComicsPRO is a reflection of a broader need for introspection and change, not just within the comic book industry but in how fandoms and creative communities navigate the challenges of the modern era.

Is it too little, too late? Only time will tell. But history is replete with stories of comebacks and renaissances, often sparked by a single moment of collective realization. The ComicsPRO call for unity may just be the beacon the industry needs to rally its forces, to embrace diversity and inclusivity, and to march forward into a new era. After all, if comic books have taught us anything, it’s that it’s never too late for heroes to emerge and for change to happen. The real question now is, can the industry unite like the teams of superheroes that have inspired generations, or will it remain a cautionary tale of what could have been? The next chapter is yet to be written, and it requires every stakeholder to pick up the pen.
