Scott McCloud has come up with a very good theory of getting comics back on the map. To widen the medium of comics and targeting a more diverse group of people. McCloud has this idea that "it's a big world out there, a world filled with millions of potential stories by millions of potential writers and artists, with the power to connect with billions of potential reader". This idea of McClouds expresses a way to get comics out there. Comics is not a big deal out there. There are many people that have not really looked into comics. To get a more diverse audience the writers must come with a more diverse product. McCloud states that the comics industry is prejudice. Minorities are not given as big of chance to help create comics. Thus the comics are staying right where they are. In order for comics to move up the minorities must step up to the comics challenge. Comics today are male dominated and women are not seen in the comic world. Even now that women are writing comics know one knows because its mostly men reading them. The gender balance must level out in comics. Scott McCloud believes that the genre of comics must broaden as well. It is the same muscular superheroes that McCloud believes is boring the readers. He uses the example that superheroes in comics are like chocolate pies and no one wants to eat chocolate pies all the time. Readers want a larger diverse genre to choose from
I am with McCloud all the way on this. Comics need to start writing about sports. I believe that if it is good enough some readers might actually like it. Sometimes in Sports Illustrated there are skits that make fun of players. I bet if there were more comic strips like that, some sports fans may be interested.
