    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 the day.

    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 rude awakening.

    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 the exception of superhero TV show tie-ins and Super...

    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 market too. That includes kids. Super Sons books...

    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 happening. Promotion and advertising has mostly been...

    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 Zoom are great, but they aren’t going to help...

    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 finally try it.

    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 identity being out could have been immensely...

    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 impact endure.

    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 would be fully on board with the new direction by...

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

    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 comfortable writing them. Perhaps writers fear they'll...

    Are they older though? Jai refers to Wally as Daddy. That doesn't scream older. Might just be that Booth's art makes them look a little older.

    The way things are going there is a decent chance sales will drop below 40,000 by this time next year. However, even if it does, I imagine Didio and co will just see 5G as an opportunity to boost...

    No, Jimmy's book has been almost entirely independent of any other series. Lex is even hanging around doing business man things.
