Comics, Movies and a New Publishing Deal for Bone at the San Diego Comic-Con

The final panel, “Comics After Hollywood” looked at overall developments in the relationship between page, screen and video games. Most of the best (and most colorful) lines were delivered by Top Cow president/COO Matt Hawkins, “It’s better to not have a movie come out if it’s a piece of s—t”and American Original CEO Jeff Katz, “85% of the people coming down from Hollywood don’t give a s—t about comics.” Katz and Circle of Confusion producer/manager Rick Jacobs predicted a major shrinkage in the film and TV business – from 25-30% over the next few years – as the economy, the internet and changes in the audience create a perfect storm of consumer demands for quality storytelling.
