    I haven't looked at the numbers, but do they continue to sell well? I think the durability of the story's ability to make the sales charts is what the OP was asking about.

    DC lends itself to self-contained stories in a way Marvel does not because of what's baked into each company's historical DNA. DC's structure was always siloed, all the way back to its roots as two...

    This is among the reasons that I think superhero comics should be written to be kid-friendly. So we can dismiss any attempt to use them as any kind of real world solution analogy.

    It looks like they'll be cribbing enough from Andromeda as it is. ;)

    Night Force was kind of a mystical Mission: Impossible. The center piece was Baron Winters, who sat in his creepy old mansion, Wintersgate, sending people out to thwart evil, often against their...

    My favorite thing about Acts of Vengeance was that you didn't have to buy every issue of the blamed thing to enjoy it. You could just buy your usual comic, which included enough side-plot scenery to...

    Moore is one of comics greatest creative talents. He's also a cranky old coot.
