I know it’s a bit of a guess really, but I’m interested in everyone’s thoughts on where the industry and hobby in general will be in a decade.
10 years ago we hadn’t had Iron Man (the movie) yet. There weren’t any superhero TV shows (I think). We’d seen success with the X Men, with Spiderman and Batman Begins was a year old. Now Marvel are the first franchise to hit 10 billion, and they have 3 of the top 10 grossing movies in history. We just watched Superman punch Batman. Plus there’s maybe 20 comic based TV shows now.
10 years ago a new event book called Civil War was released. It paved the way for Marvel domination in sales and took Marvel in new directions. We’ve had a DC reboot, Image taking over the graphic novel space and Walking Dead redefining what indie success looks like.
10 years ago Comixology didn’t exist. Now digital comics seem to have opened a whole new audience.
So put your thinking caps on. What don’t we see today that will be in place in 2026?
