Abstract
In an essay published in this journal’s first volume, Jonathan Sterne provocatively argued that there is no music industry. This article uses the American comic book industry to further suggest some limitations to taking supposedly discrete industries as objects of analysis. As a label, “the American comic book industry” conceals a great deal of internal diversity, some of which can be recovered through mapping methods and by examining available sales data. On closer examination, it is not American, does not principally produce “comic books,” and may not even be an industry.
