Thanks for posting this Morganza.I got ask though how the H..E hockey sticks did you manage to interview John Byrne??
I still think his Fantastic Four and Superman work was some of his best stuff.

Wonderful point about comic book costs. I agree with you totally.
In fact, I blame the whole comic-book industry downfall on the 3-4 dollar books. X-Men was the most popular comic... when it cost a buck and a quarter. You could get 4 books for 5 bucks. Now days, you'll be lucky to get 2 books under 6 bucks. When prices are increased collectors will decrease. Simple supply and demand rules that the industry ignores.
The glossy paper just isn't worth it. The quality of paper doesn't make the comic, it's the talented work printed on the paper that counts. And how expensive can 8 pages of 13x10 paper plus cover be?
People in the bizness keep talking about the comic book downfall, and how unfortunate everything is. Everything was doing so great. What happened in the mid 90s to change all that?
The price increase. Comics are too expensive for kids to buy anymore. Make comics a buck and a quarter again and the people will come back.

Yeah! Comics are entertainment not freakin stamps! I miss reading comics, can't afford it anymore.

man, i think the interview was going smashingly until you badgered him about comic costs. That was bad form, IMHO, being that he's not a publisher himself.
To tell truth, i think the rest of your questions were solid, and overall the interview was an enjoyable read. My congratulations on your success with it.
