ADV , anime, comics, Disney, Kodansha, manga, Marvel, Tokyopop
So the Geekonomy has gone bugnuts crazy the last week. Let's count the ways it changed:
- Disney bought Marvel, giving them thousands of properties, control
of more pop culture icons, and an endless parade of bad cartoons of
Wolverine/Mickey Mouse fusions.
- Kodansha is ending its licensing deal with Tokyopop.
- ADV seems to be transferring it's properties to a holding company, making it sound like they're basically dead.
And I was worried about the Everything Wars.
First of all, let me state I DO NOT see this as part of the
Everything Wars – those are battles over technology and access. THis
is what I've called the Secondary area of the Everything Wars – content.
there's a lot to chew over. So in this analysis, let me do the chewing
– and figure out what it means for you in your career.
