Matt, I have to tell ya, I really like the vision and direction you have, both for your CAFP and for the comic industy itself.
I also LOVE that each cloumn ends with you're tag line of "...give someone a comic". Beats "Excelsior" anyday!
In regards to your thoughts on the big two getting their ADVENTURES lines out there beyond the comic shops, at least in trade form, you can find them at Bookstores like Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, etc. I know Marvel has collected many of their al ages works in smaller, manga-style trades
So it's a start, anyway.
Hey, speakin' o' all ages comics, didja read my intervioew with Landry Walker about SUPERGIRL: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade? We discuss the merits of all-ages books, in some questions that, I admit, I thought of you when I wrote.
Great column, man. Very thought invoking.
