Diversity in comics is riding high and acting untouchable.

He's an idiot, sure, but he has a following 60k strong, so maybe he's just playing the fool. Monthly sales on any title barely break 100k these days, and the average buyer takes home 2-3 books or more a month, so at best you could argue there are 150k regulars to the 3 thousand stores still standing.

TLDR; He's winning, using the same strategy as Trump.

Precisely.
Sad state of affairs. Some people using good ideas for lucrative means, which robs those ideas of meaning.
