Salkowitz offers an entertaining and substantive look at the show, providing a close look at the comic-book and videogame industries’ expanding influence on marketing, merchandising, and the entertainment industry.
Rob Salkowitz is founder and Principle Consultant for the communications firm MediaPlant, LLC.
