Flashback Friday: NYT on "Heroes Reborn"

by John Jackson Miller

No time for a longer flashback today, but with the New York Times moving much content back behind a paywall in January, now is probably a good time to search for any of those comics articles you'd like to see before the change.

I was amused to find an interview with me from September 1996, back when Marvel was launching "Heroes Reborn": the story mentioned that I was "compiling the industry's first long-term data base." (Actually, September 1996 was the first month that I had published monthly estimates for the industry, so I really was just getting started!) At any rate, there are some interesting numbers in there about Marvel's business at the time — just a few months before it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
