I've talked to some friends in the industry today, some that have worked at Valiant before and they are all in shock and pissed about this. The feeling is the same as my previous comment, where this is all about the IP and make money of it and not about the future of the comic book company.

They should cancel half of line, make the rest of the books biweekly, and call it BIRTHQUAKE.

There is little money left for a business if you are solely concerned publishing comic books in today's market. It's just not a healthy mass market anymore.

Comic books are only profitable today if the prospect of film and TV adaptations get included.

But the reason they're profitable to the mass market is because of the years of wok that was put into the comics. If Spider-Man Homecoming came out in a vacuum it would just be a standard science fiction movie with little appeal outside of the teenage market. No one will see Turok outside of people that know who the character is. Even Superman the motion picture, while a damn good stand alone movie about a man flying around in underwear would have very questionable staying power if he wasn't created and fleshed out in comic books.
