              I'm pretty sure a big company can't buy you if you don't agree to it even if you're half a percents of it's capital.

                It's not about selling it's about competing.

                I'll do my shit in my own corner and I'll just let it die if it come to it. If my vision get corrupted to shit because of some random c**t needing a third of a cent more per year then what's even the fricking point of doing it myself in the first place?
                Not like I'd make comics anyway, but I've been looking into gamedev. Inspired by stuff like isotopium chernobyl for those who know, not sure I can even pull it off since I'd need to figure out electronics and some robotics on top of making the concept engaging

                The thing about publicly traded corporations is they have to show shareholders and potential investors what they’re doing to increase the share value. Growth is the only thing they can point to even if it fails, if they sell the potential well enough line go up.

      >capturing a niche market isn’t capitalism
      It happens when morons take over and try to expand beyond the niche. Often viewing capturing the niche as a stepping stone instead the extent of their market. So they generalize it, the business loses its audience, and they fail. morons only concerned with short term gain instead of stable profit will never make it big. Just look at the grave yard of vidya (MMOs especially) that attempted the same if you don’t believe me.

    Two reasons the least controversial reason is because corporations believe everything has mass market appeal. They don't see the properties success as dependent on the holistic entity and reason that if they just change this or that or this they can expand the audience without sacrificing the base. By their reasoning as long as it somewhat resembles the original project then people will accept it. They're usually wrong.

    The second reason is companies like Blackrock give incentives to companies to change properties to something their directors find more socially acceptable. If the first was the only reason then companies would likely course correct as buying properties only to run them into the ground isn't altogether a profitable strategy but the market is addicted to investment capital and Blackrock will effectively subsidize your failures. So there's no reason to change. As far as the companies are concerned they can't lose. If you change a property to make Blackrock happy and it brings in a new market then you've basically doubled your profit. If you change it and it dies, it doesn't matter they'll cover the cost anyways. The sad thing is the person who loses both times is you because Blackrock gets most of it's investment capital from employer set up retirement accounts.

      Thats moronic. That’s how the Soviet Union collapsed. Entire sectors of the economy just excisted on paper to please some party officials in Moscow meanwhile the people used news papers to wipe their asses. This shit can’t go on indefinitely. One day the bubble will bursts and those of us unlucky to be alive then will have to survive through an apocolypse.

        The problem here is that they simply don't care.
        They went the profit NOW and when things will crumble they won't be there to take the fall anymore, they'll be chilling on their yatch. They have no reason to care for the damage caused long term because the only thing that have any impact on them is the short term.

      they change things that have nothing to do with the initial ceiling though
      in case of the OP the ceiling is the location. Once they get the budget to expand to other locations, the ceiling is already broken. If the ceiling was people who want tacos but not spicy ones, then the initial company wouldn't have become well known enough to be considered profitable to buy in the first place.
      In case of stuff like cartoons or anime, the ceiling is the medium. The moment you change the medium to live action, the ceiling is already broken, you don't need to the change the story or characters.

        I thought in the comic the ceiling is the market, the spicy tacos buyers. Company does well by focusing on marketing to spicy taco lovers, their business is going well. But then the business starts to stagnate, because there's no spicy taco buyers anymore, you already got them all, you hit the ceiling with that market. You see huge normie taco lover audience, but they don't want your tacos because they're too spicy for them. Pandering to this new huge market would save your company from stagnation, so you make your tacos less spicy. Now you have a new market to pander to, but with a risk of alienating your pre-existing spicy taco lovers.

        But in the end, it might be a risk worth taking, because even if you lose certain amount of spicy taco lovers, you'll get a slice from normie taco lovers that can repair the damage and keep your company growing.
