There was a comics apocalypse in 2016. Along the bad start of the year I had in economical terms, the downfall of the Mexican peso had it’s first impact on collectors and gamers, before anyone else. Also, Decomixado, my main comic book provider decided to inexplicably close its doors. Even in spite of its evident partnership with La Mole Comic Con and the thousands of people attending events like the “Free Comic Book Day”, it seems that business wasn’t as good as expected. I guess that, again, the fall of the peso is to blame.
But this forced purge on my pull list comes as somethings good, because if we compare it with the list from more than a year ago, the surviving titles are all of very high quality, and they are mostly creator-owned books. There are almost no titles from the big M.
