    are reviews (professional or otherwise) any fairer or more accurate?



    i'm sure some of that goes on. no man is an island and no creative is without doubts. you tend to seek out peers opinions...

    i feel similar regarding old man logan, but what other metrics is marvel supposed to use? what else would be appropriate? sales is still an important part of the discussion and a measure of whether...

    no worries, i'm procrastinating so i'm posting way quicker than i should.

    i largely agree with what you're saying, and again, i don't think anyone on this thread disagrees. but being...

    sorry sickalice, you've lost me. not quite sure what you mean.
  5. i don't think anyone on this thread argued that...

    i don't think anyone on this thread argued that sales did equal quality (unless i missed it)? but quality is subjective. saying "mcdonalds! ha" does not disprove that sales might also mean quality.

    semantics. did you honestly believe that when i wrote "audiences are more sophisticated and media savvy" that i was talking about biological evolution rather than interaction with media?



    no...

    yeah, marvel are doing exactly nothing wrong in this regard.
  8. you might be using "sophisticated" to mean...

    you might be using "sophisticated" to mean ‘cultured’, i'm using its definition as ‘complexity’ and that’s undeniable. time shifting through technology, proliferation of media and bad...

    unfortunately audiences are far more sophisticated and media savvy these days. hyperbole is short term grabber that potentially breeds distrust ( see the backlash against clickbait headlines), it...

    well, that clears that up. disregard everything i've written.

    you want someone to write some copy. cool.

    sex doesn't sell but hyperbole does?

    ok, we're not even going to touch on the gross misrepresentation of an entire profession and the oversimplification of marketing and industry realities here (or that the 60s was entirely different...

    i don't think it works like that. it might seem like a no-brainer to us lay-men, but we (as far as i know) don't have marketing degrees, though i work heavily with my own marketing/sales team as well...

    one element in an overall expenditure. or are you suggesting that completely skews the balance in marvel's favour?
  14. marketing = $. there's only so much $ in the...

    marketing = $. there's only so much $ in the budget per annum devoted to it. use wisely.

    and the beatles sold like crazy back in the day. the reverse stands- sales does not denote a lack of quality either. it only shows one thing: success.

    so it was not a spider themed event since it only featured 100 spiders rather than 180 spiders. to fix this, slott should have included some characters from mc2 that aren't spiders at all or even...

    it's good for others to hear as well as it can open new ways of looking at things when you hear another reader's interpretation. it's only off putting when presented as fact that somehow every other...

    yeah that's how "head canon" works. it's a pick and choose from what you're presented by the publisher. it's also connecting your own dots (often between totally unrelated or unintentionally related...

    absolutely. but what happens if defalco ends up writing this imposter mayday for the rest of her days, and marvel nor he ever showcase this "original" mayday ever again?
