    Again I think the comic book format is dated in today's age (print is slowly dying, even newspapers that existed for over century, are in danger of forming). I think in the future, only books will be the print media that will survive.


Comics have advantages over other media. A big one is cost, where it's much more cost effective to produce a 6 issue comic than a 2 hour movie. There also isn't a difference in what you show, a space battle in comics is the same cost as a conversation in a diner. For a movie, that's a huge difference.

Comics will survive, but like many things they will just go digital. People still prefer still visuals, the text message will outlive the voice mail. People still like photographs.

Books in their current physical form will become a niche soon, much like vinyl records. After a generation, they will stop completely.
