But I fear that the emergence of cartoons such as South Park, Spongebob etc. will consign Tintin to oblivion.
I can’t see how you can pick on specific targets like that, especially as they don’t have the same demographic. They also aren’t that new, having been around since 1997 (South Park
) and 1999 (SpongeBob
), so any damage would have been done by now, surely?
Plus, if you look at the decline of local BD in the Francophone world, as well as Western comics in Europe and the U.S., it’s Manga which has encroached on the market, so it’s difficult to see why it wouldn’t be the same in India too.
However, comic sales seem to be down globally whatever the style.
The biggest threat to comics isn’t other comics or cartoons but video-games; it’s these which are taking the money from the people who used to buy comics.
If people had any taste it would South Park and Spongebob that would be consigned to oblivion
That’s getting a little close to flame-baiting - as has been said many times on here, people are entitled to like what they like, but just because you don’t
like something, there’s no need to slam those who do.
By all means express why you don’t like something, but please don’t just brand a sector of the readership as tasteless because they have different taste.
