MARK WAID’S ALTER EGO SHOP IS NOW AW YEAH COMICS MUNCIE

A year and a half ago, writer and digital comics advocate Mark Waid became part owner of Alter Ego Comics of Muncie, Indiana. Today, he is announcing a major change for the store, and in this exclusive interview, he opens up about the lessons he’s learned from his involvement in both the direct market and digital distribution.

The writer of numerous popular series, including “Daredevil,” “S.H.I.E.L.D.,” and the soon-to-be rebooted “Archie,” Mark Waid partnered with John Rogers in 2012 to launch the digital comics platform Thrillbent, which hosts his work and that of others. Since then, he has spent the past three years experimenting with different digital formats and platforms.

In 2013 he added another venture when he became co-owner, with Christy Blanch and Jason Pierce, of Alter Ego Comics. They soon teamed up with another creator-owned comic shop, Aw Yeah Comics of Skokie, Illinois, which was founded by “Tiny Titans” team of Art Baltazar and Franco and business manager Marc Hammond.

Today, Waid is announcing that he and Blanch are reincorporating Alter Ego Comics under a new name, Aw Yeah Comics Muncie. They will continue to be co-owners of the store, although, as with the last store, are trading a percentage of the business for a share in Art and Franco’s Skokie store.

CBR News spoke with Waid about the new changes, and what he’s learned about the industry through his experiences as both a brick-and-mortar retailer and a digital distributor.

Skokie, IL – December 12, 2014 – Mego Museum in conjunction with Aw Yeah Comics is pleased to announce that Mego Meet 2015 will be held June 5th and 6th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago – North Shore Conference Center. Registration information for vendors and attendees will be posted on the Mego Meet 2015 page at megomuseum.com in the coming weeks.

For the past ten years, the annual Mego Meet made its home in Wheeling, WV. It was clear after Mego Meet 10 that maximum density had been surpassed in Wheeling and that a change of venue was in order. The move to Skokie, IL. will allow for easy access for those travelling by plane, as well as provide a myriad of options for family entertainment. The facilities at DoubleTree offer award-winning guest rooms and event space for presenters, vendors, and attendees.

Perhaps the most exciting byproduct of the new location is that it makes possible a partnership with Aw Yeah Comics, located in beautiful downtown Skokie. Eisner Award-winning artist and co-owner Art Baltazar will be in attendance with the entire Aw Yeah gang. Art is a long-time Mego Meet attendee and is thrilled to host the Meet in it’s new home.

As in years past, Mego Meet 2015 will feature dealer rooms packed full of vintage toys; presentations by collectors, customizers, and toy companies dealing in the classic 8″ “Mego scale;” a customs contest; and an auction to benefit the Mego Museum. The addition of Aw Yeah Comics will add another dimension that will diversify and improve what is already a great annual event.

AW YEAH – MEGO MEET 2015!
