"We've really enjoyed the opportunity to present our White Papers at New York Comic Con for the last four years," Griepp said. "C2E2's launch this spring made it the perfect venue to release this year's report."

"In the past, we've been able to support our work on the White Paper through our Conference at New York Comic Con," Griepp explained. "With C2E2 taking over that slot in the calendar, we needed a new way to support our annual report on the industry. Reed stepped up to the plate with their sponsorship."
