IDW PUBLISHING BOOKS BRIAN HIBBS' "TILTING AT WINDMILLS"
Collected Columns of One Man's Fight For Better Retailing
San Diego, CA (January 30, 2003) Give some people a stage and
they find themselves at a loss for words. Noted comic book retailer
and industry pundit Brian Hibbs is not that kind of person. Give
him a stage and he'll turn it to a pulpit for his widely-read
opinions and aggressive retailing methods.
Brian Hibbs, owner of San Francisco's premier comic book store,
Comix Experience, has joined with IDW Publishing to collect his
influential "Tilting at Windmills" columns. These columns
have graced the pages of Comics and Game Retailer since its inception.
Containing useful guidelines for new and established retailers
who sell comics in this pop culture hungry world, "Tilting
at Windmills" was also startlingly prescient about the rise
and fall of the comics industry in the '90s.
"I don't know that I could have found a more exciting publishing
partner," said "Tilting" author Brian Hibbs. "IDW
has an astonishingly diverse line-up, and I'm thrilled they offered
to publish the compilation of nearly a decade of my observations
and commentary about the mechanics of the business of comic books.
Surely other, less courageous, publishers would have balked at
some of the controversial topics I address."
Tilting At Windmills will serve as an entertaining and informative
manual for those seeking to cut their way through the four-color
jungle of the business of comics. It's filled with commonsense
tips, behind-the-scenes thoughts of how and what publishers produce,
and point-by-point steps to make selling comics turn into profits.
