    I did, too. Still feel it's a mediocre comic elevated by Reis' art. It's so perfectly middle of the road as far as comics go, which I guess what DC wants (and needs), but isn't my thing. I hoped...

    Well, if you were looking for a archetypal New 52 book done well, this is it. It's got very nice art in service to a so-so story. Not bad, better than most superhero comics, but nothing special,...

    Dan Abnett has me sold. He has defined the last decade of cosmic superhero comics.

    (Would like more Kingdom, though.)

    Speaking as a guy who reads pretty widely and not just in comics, it's pretty hard not to go with Ellis' Karnak just because you know it's going to be something different, I love the current Ms...
  5. No, and I think the premise is wrong. I think...

    No, and I think the premise is wrong. I think that interpretation of DC comics is the result of a superficial and not particularly thorough interpretation of what DC comics were during that period. ...

    Have any of us considered DC's end when the collected Sandman: Overture drops in November? It's going to sell significantly more than any monthly comic, not to mention globally. It will almost...

    You don't believe in Batmen: Legends of the Dark Knights starring Batman, Batman, and Batman and featuring the art of Jim Lee?

    I don't think this a response to Marvel's sales so much as DC not...
  8. You should. It's much, much, much better than...

    You should. It's much, much, much better than Stormwatch, which was terrible all the way through, no matter how many times they tried to revamp it on the fly.

    Actually, there were a bunch of reasons. John Wagner wasn't happy with DC-- didn't like the treatment that Cam Kennedy got when he visited the DC offices (immortalized in the classic Judge Dredd...

    I think it will last as long as King and/or Seeley stay on the book, plus six issues with a new creative team. That tends to be how these things go.

    I was asking for Section Eight. (It is a six issue mini, by the way.)

    That book is going to sell a lot better in a collected edition on strength of Ennis and McCrea's names on the cover. I'm...

    I wonder what to extent personnel buyouts resulted in the revenue shortfall. That would seem to be a big factor that nobody has really mentioned.

    I hope so, too. For starters, it's rare that we get a crossover between two very good books.

    Judging from his rant and previous statements, I'm thinking some kind of paranoid personality disorder. His suicide note was his last effort to cast himself as the hero in his own story and justify...

    They rarely do.



    Anything under 20,000 is in dangerous territory, but DC has historically let books hang around in the 15,000-17,000 range if there's a good amount of critical acclaim and solid...

    I've always found Dick Grayson to be one of the blandest, least interesting characters in comics, even in his NTT days. (I stuck with Dixon's Nightwing for far too long because people said it was...

    That is true. Books like this have been lucky to make it two years since the bubble burst in the mid-'90s. It's just par for the course.

    But the Annihlation minis, Nova, and DnA's GotG were not good sellers, either. The sales picked up when Bendis attached himself to the franchise.

    Archie Goodwin is the best one as it has the complete Manhunter backups and Night Cries. Author volumes tend to fare better that artist ones as there is a consistant voice for the stories. The Norm...

    This is true. Dan Abnett's Guardians 3000 was a far superior book to any of Bendis' GotG material, and it was among Marvel's lowest sellers.

    I think it could go either way with Miles. I do think a lot of the character's success is connected to Bendis' name on the cover, but there's also a lot people who have taken to the character. ...

    Me, too. I still want it, even if it doesn't actually exist.

    I think Ms Marvel is bona fide, but the other two are iffy. We know the regular Thor will be returning at some point, which more than likely makes the female Thor either a limited thing or the new...

    That's because he had to write in all those homages and callbacks to earlier runs. He spent more time thinking about what to have the artist reference than plotting the actual story.
