Indeed, the industry is looking at improved sales versus this period last year, and we’re not just talking at the big companies, either, but also the smaller and more vital independent publishers.

One company that has benefited from its stunning talent pool creating some of the solid books on the shelves, is Vault Comics. Publishers Damian Wassel and Executive EIC Adrian Wassel have pulled together some outstanding creators under their banner and are enjoying remarkable successes. Here, Dan talks to the brothers about were the industry is at the moment, what they feel comics can do to capitalise on these improved sales, and what they as a company have planned down the road…
