    Sam replied to a thread September 2019 sales in DC Comics
    Keep in mind this is before the card stock variants come into play. Batman 78 didn't have one, but Batman 79 might join the top ten before the end of...

    Plus, Jon as a kid seemed to be more appealing to modern youth culture. If DC thinks Legion is going to do a better job of that, they may be in for a...

    DC has tried to bring in new readers to the direct market certainly. But kid readers? Not really, no. Especially not in the last decade plus. With...

    That's the point. If it isn't an either-or thing, then DC might as well explore new avenues of appealing to a wider range of people within the direct...

    I'm not talking about the Bendis is Coming stuff from 2 years ago. I'm talking about the New York Times article focusing on Superman 18. I'm talking...

    I don’t agree. If other modes of distribution were DC’s main concern, they’d be promoting it more than they do the monthlies. That isn’t what’s...

    It’s a major miscalculation on DC’s part. They want to grow their monthly comics brand, they should be trying to get the kid market in there. Ink and...

    This sounds cool. I love Man of Steel, but always stopped there as the sheer amount of Byrne’s stuff seemed intimidating. This might be a good way to...

    It's definitely unfortunate, and really highlights the missed opportunity that came from aging Jon up. Having ten year old Jon deal with his secret...

    We'll see, but I do think you underestimate the impact young Jon made. Tomasi struck a cord for a lot of people and I do believe we will see that...

    Doesn't matter in this case. Longevity is important, but if something makes an impact with people, they'll remember. I'm sure DC was hoping everyone...

    Granted, the simple solution is to keep kid characters in the hands of writers who are actually comfortable writing them. Yeah, that's what...

    I think what it comes down to is that a lot of creators (and members of DC editorial) don't really get the appeal of kid characters or aren't...

    That's definitely a possibility, although they could keep the January solicit vague if they want to. We'll see. And it's easy to get the numbers...

    The solicitations for 18 are already out (as it drops in December), so I doubt it's that, but maybe.
