Newsarama and the New York Comic-Con announced a partnership yesterday. A couple of people read this as an “exclusive”, but apparently it isn’t. Other websites and even bloggers can still report on panels and make videos and whatnot. What’s interesting is that until we read the PR we had no idea that Newsarama was “the leading authority for expert commentary and analysis of the global comic book industry.” News and interviews, sure, but “analysis”? That isn’t the first thing we would have thought.
Speaking of Newsarama, it’s been interesting to speculate on the effects of the Imaginova purchase. We hear that ad rates have gone up quite a bit, and it is definitely a shock to see ads for waterless toilets and telescopes on a comics site. But otherwise, everyone seems to be sitting down and catching up just like before.
