That glad you didn't filmmaker.
And not there of pets masses as the comic book under an upgrade right here.
Thank you for coming on it's great to have you for it to be summer blockbuster season is upon last we have Iron Man three out that came from the marvel comic book.
Today -- it still comes out.
In July we have the will -- in November.
Thorn in the dark world it all of these came from comic books that's -- -- -- making that transition from.
The book to the big thing.
Because I think on the books have a huge fan base and that transcends into films well.
Took a lot of times you see films -- -- -- and know that it's based in a comic book when walking deference and -- is a huge TV show.
Let people tell me that they had no idea that it's actually based on a graphic models -- of that attic this that they go you know and -- old time a lot of different films yet.
We shall there be some graphic novels.
Did the -- in two people then returned today to the novels after the movies come out of the TV shows come out could sit Lou -- in the audience.
And well and -- case the walking there and if you go to come McConnell if you do go to different conventions.
-- happening all over the country by the word now.
The walking that is huge -- so I'm glad you brought up that they conventions there are several already this year Chicago Detroit Philadelphia.
July 4 weekend Miami San Diego July 18 to twenty earth carrying -- trend ended.
And they do -- that -- city's convention it's a big money maker.
Absolutely huge moneymaker -- -- just in Philadelphia couple weeks ago -- -- life.
You know it's exciting because not just what comic books and more accountable support where it's about film -- -- in general.
You know actually had smashed the previous edition the -- where fear and that was number one seller.
Actual -- become -- -- So -- absolutely and it's and it's a great you know way to build a fan base.
It's really grassroots campaign when you go there -- -- -- And so for the fans and very honest about their feedback you know that'll hold back anything so it's it's a great way to test -- the actual level what had Nationale.
Has -- is really new super hero for the for the new generations about but a kid growing up an orphanage in this.
Pre puck -- city of Morris was -- -- what difference syndicates in crime organizations and then you become the soldier and one of the biggest -- called for him and then he grows up in that as a soldier in our organization gets betrayed literally trying to find out why.
So how's that for the new generation one.
You know it's very relatable character and you know he's we anybody that's -- -- wanna fight for the family fight for their for the rights can relate to that character and and gets all the special syrup and he starts fighting -- the same people that you know betrayed him later also.
And he got us bookstores -- revolution in the sense and today if you look around the world.
Let people fighting for freedom fighting for the right I think a lot of things -- so that's -- you know the new political -- And in a way he had nothing to political will definitely have some some.
Yeah both him.
Now that that's certainly makes sense is it in your opinion about superheroes that the American imagination of the world imagines it just seems to -- to him.
I think I think everybody can really superheroes because we wish we had these powers to -- stand -- of something in -- And many times do something that we can't do because we'll have those special powers -- -- -- people -- -- express those.
Those feelings or that that you know that notion that you want to fight for something previously just don't have -- -- you so he can relate to superheroes because obviously they care.
And who is the demographic for for comic books and superhero films I think today.
I think today's everybody really.
Absolutely it's not just for you know small demographic of the so that it's really for everybody and films like Iron Man and the -- -- coming.
Is just proves that I guess I'm the best example I've never had a comic book and I love exactly yeah.
You know so you do not go back and read the book.
Love story -- now I guess they -- -- these multiple wouldn't attract everybody on the and forgive me for not being a comic book fan.
So it might be a hearing question but are comic books still read in book form or are they doing -- on line more interactive is now the.
Does that -- -- -- as well becoming books is that form of print media that will always exist I'm gonna -- or you go to collect them you can opener up -- And you can actually focus and pictures -- you know and then -- illustrations.
And it's something -- always little.
You know everyone looked up and publishing he should work for the comic book industry kept playing the newspaper magazine movie it's not dying absolutely got to be held him.
And you have artists you worked there and then the writers -- the -- to.

Taking a conflict industry making it very Hollywood and then he's fun.
Action figures -- hands all of these retail things that.

It's a huge business I mean and it's you know when it comes to cover -- it's -- books of course and -- movies -- missiles and merchandising so when you look at let's say you know franchise like you know like Spiderman Superman or something like that is all that comes with -- -- -- -- -- Hugh truth business.
When you look at like when you look at a net -- swept through you mean it's it's it's just going books alone as a billion dollar business and -- -- from the moment is prevent us I don't know how much is on average is a -- -- a book rules for you know it can go for three to five dollars within the graphic novel with -- 140 to go -- to fifteen to twenty dollars 240 pages report page book.
