60,000 (FCBD) units in 2014 - I wonder how that translates into progs/megs sold each week/month?
Probably around 5-6 times the number of comics Tharg shifts each week (link)
. That's an indication of how many potential readers 2000ad
could be reaching but for some reason doesn't.
Tharg should cut FCBD out of the loop by producing a stripped down version of 2000ad/The Meg
for free monthly
distribution round the nation's comic shops, to lure lapsed customers or nerds who think 2000ad's
only Dredd or Slaine.
Our sub money seems to be keeping the Command Module lights on at the moment, but there may come a time when the free distribution/ad revenue model of Metro
, the Standard
, and the NME
Imagine 300,000 - 3.5 million commuters reading Kingdom
every morning, on their way to work or school.
