One of the Big Two's modern PC writers admits sales are floundering

Warner Todd Huston at Breitbart points to comments made by Steve Orlando, a modern writer who's had his own share of PC storytelling, and who's admitted sales are tanking like never before:
A top Marvel Comics writer recently admitted that the ultra-woke U.S. comics industry is “struggling” even as sales of Japanese and South Korean comics are soaring in the U.S.

Marvel writer Steve Orlando, who currently pens Scarlet Witch, recently tweeted — then deleted — the admission that sales of U.S.-made comic books are falling and he is expecting his own series to be canceled after only ten issues.

“Sales are struggling, alongside the whole industry. Right now, we’ll hopefully get to ten,” Orlando said last week, according to Bounding Into Comics.

In a reply to another Twitter user, Orlando also said that the cover price of U.S. comics are also hurting sales.

The commenter wrote, “Comics are crazy expensive now. I’m all in on manga, which is much more affordable.” To which Orlando replied, “I’m with you! Not that prices are up to – we’re in a weird spot where folks in general keep wanting a higher and higher production value and paper quality. Which is part, but all of it, of course.”

[...] Orlando didn’t say it but another reason U.S. comics are fading fast is because nearly every series, every title, and every character across every U.S. comic company is heavily pushing left-wing propaganda. U.S. comics are pushing anti-gun, pro-gay, transgender, climate change and nearly every other far left-wing agenda on readers. And the more they do so, the lower their sales go.
Yes, and Orlando's a LGBT leftist himself, as I seem to recall, so no wonder he wouldn't admit it; that's not something SJWs like him are known to do. Something tells me if a known right-winger tried to ask him if could come clean about how far-left agendas have effectively destroyed the mainstream, he'd vehemently refuse to acknowledge the vicious politics people like him stuff into the comics is having a severely negative impact.

It wouldn't be shocking if the Scarlet Witch comic Orlando's penning will turn out to be pretty bad in its own way too, and another demonstration of how, for Wanda Maximoff, the time to get her own monthly solo came far too late.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
