However, in my experience, trade sales are never mentioned as a factor when a comic is being considered for cancellation. If a Marvel comic is selling fewer than 20,000 copier per month, it will be cancelled eventually. I've never heard anyone say, "...unless the trades are doing well."
And keeping comics from being cancelled is the only thing that ultimately matters to readers like us. We want our books to be published so we can buy them.
True. The shops make the money.
Do you know this for a fact? What book would be an example?
Here's the way I was looking at it:
Back issues = revenue for the shop
Trades = revenue for Marvel
Back issues = reprints
Trades = reprints
Thus the only difference is who makes the money, Marvel or the shops. And I don't care who makes the money, unless they give me a cut!
However, if trades sales are factored into the equation of whether to cancel a comic, then I will start caring about trade sales.
