    Yep. Pretty disappointing that there was barely any relatively recent stuff on there and the recent ones that were included, I wish had just been skipped.

    Marvel actually makes quite a bit of money from collectors by way of 1:2000, meet or exceed, retailer exclusive, etc variants. Marvel sells the comics at regular wholesale but they get thousands...

    One of the original complaints was the gating (meet or exceed x%) on variants before it got derailed.

    Speculators do need to get the comics they flip on ebay from somewhere. Since quick...

    Outside the DM, Batman is a pretty big deal. No doubt a lot of DC's collected edition revenue come from Batman-related books - Killing Joke, Snyder/Capullo run, Hush, Year One, DKR, Earth One, Long...

    I know the production costs are different. The buyers aren't likely to care about that, though.

    For something closer to home, Raina Telgemeier's graphic novels are $10.99 and a quick check on...

    Probably because it's those same entitled fans that were willing (and can afford) to pay increasingly high prices for comics. The current price point just isn't ideal for what's supposed to be...

    If you order a sub directly from Image, it actually tells you specifically what issue you will start on. Check your email.

    Floppies are $4-5 per issue while trade paperbacks average $2-3 per issue (and can often be had for less on Amazon). Even hardcovers can be had for ~$3 per issue or less.

    I reckon a large portion...

    Not quite. Given the non-returnable nature of most comics via the direct market, whether it's 10K or 50K or 100K, those are all sold (to retailers). Publishers don't overprint by a lot which is...

    Anyone can easily download the 10-Q and 10-K SEC filings nowadays. I don't think anyone bothers with booklets anymore. Granted, I do electronic/paperless with Schwab so it's not like I get anything...

    Honestly, I reckon low sales and retailer frustration over the the stealth cancelled books is why Marvel is being more "honest" now in their solicitations. If that hadn't happened, I expect Spirits...

    Perhaps no voting rights is the correct terminology? Pretty sure DIS doesn't have Class A and B shares like BRK so they're all common stock. However, I think there are very few individuals who have...

    Yeah, I also limit my ongoing pulls. It's easier to commit to limited series than ongoings because I can figure if I'm able to stretch the budget and by how much.

    That said, now that Marvel has...

    Marvel already mentioned it was a 5-part mini to begin with. Granted, spanning #100-104 is bound to be confusing for probably a lot of people. Given they went to the trouble of using legacy...
