The outlook for the publishing industry overall is for traditional print publishing to continue declining the next few years and digital and online publishing to increase, according to the Department of Labor. The comic book industry is a specialty niche, however, that will continue to keep its old fans as well as attract new audiences. The action and superhero movies and TV shows by Marvel and DC Comics that are released every year will also spur people to seek out the comic books of their favorite characters and story lines. The ease of access to self-publishing tools such as computers and printers means more people can start their own comic book publishing companies if they are so inclined. To achieve success in the business requires solid funding and money management skills, comic book publishing expertise, and strong industry contacts.
