The coming year or two is going will have controversial claims of publishers calling themselves the “real” #1 (and #2, and #3) publisher in comics due to digital and GN’s, and it might be very tricky to sort that all out. Ironically, we may be heading into a digital dark age in terms of understanding what the developing market really looks like.So. Bleeding Cool is proposing to create its own digital chart for comics based on the Nielsen ratings system. Creating a large population of digital comics readers and simply asking them what they read that week. And how much they paid.It will be incredibly flawed, even more so when it starts. It will be self selecting rather than representative, it will rely on honesty and diligence and it will have no chance of reflecting actual numbers. Hopefully that will improve in the weeks and months to come. And if it falls apart, then it will have to be abandoned.But for a first time we’ll be able to see digital trends.Bleeding Cool is inviting digital comics readers to get in touch...
Plus, the whole enterprise seems a bit sketchy from the start. Computers and anything digital are the realm of planned obsolescence - will I be able to "read" a digital file from, say, ten years ago? What happens if I drop my "device" in a snowbank or a toilet?
