Slight difference: The monthly periodicals need to stop being part one of the later trade and tell a story the way that format can. As I’ve said before, graphic novels are movies and monthly comics should be more like a TV show. I do agree that comics need to reach beyond the comic store (as much as I like comic stores) and return to the general audience at a price that benefits from impulse buying. “I have a few extra bucks, let me see what this comic is like. Oooh, I may consider getting more issues. I can get back issues where?”
Also making the mainstream comics friendly (not necessarily targeting) to kids is also a good idea. This is how comics became popular in the old days and restricting them to adults loses a good chunk of your potential audience. Something to think about but they don’t think anymore.
