Isn't it Page 3 not Page 6?

News Watch: Comic Books Recession-proof?
Monday, January 12, 2009 - 06:35 PM
[Christian Science Monitor]: The rest of the publishing industry may have its worries, but in comic-book land, things are looking rosy. According to an article in USA Today, total sales of comic books were “strong” in 2008, while the graphic-novel category grew by 5%. Read the entire story.
This may be tied into the "Lipstick Effect" that I posted about on Webcomics.com. In a bad economy, people actually spend more on less-expensive mood enhancers like lipstick (and comics).
And that's nothing but good news for comics.
P.S. Would it be completely unlandish to predict the return of the Page 6 Girl in tabloid newspapers?

In Response to Guigar (#46568):
True but Page 3 is a reference to the Sun which did it first. It's also apparently trademarked which means that you can never ever have a page 3 in your books EVER.

Hell, let's face it, we're not responsible for anything; including the things we say, do, or think. And if you sue us because you think we are? Well, we're not responsible for that either.
