And it's not only the really small indy publishers, take a look at The Goon #39, the message of this book was to give the perfect explanation of what the industry has become, gimmicks and flash! Today we get "event" after "event" that amount to absolutely nothing and take all the consumers attention. Some may say "this is a business" and they may be right in a way, but let's say that, hypothetically, indy creators finally got fed up with the whole situation and stopped producing comics, what would happen to the industry? Could it survive with just Marvel, DC and Image? I don't believe it would survive at all.
