    That was a good read, thanks.

    Okay, I don't think DC's overall rankings here are as bad as you're making them sound. Yeah, they're clearly outclassed by the companies who's primary purpose is to...

    I'm sure Bendis' position is safe. His sales haven't been horrid and can be seen as largely falling within Superman's typical sales range and rankings (last I checked anyway) and he's got plenty of...

    Got a link to the article? I would like to read that. :)

    Okay, so revenue is down, yet trades/OGN's have seen a 6-11% increase from 2018-2019. Are we looking at a increase of overhead and...

    Trades and OGN's made and sold more in 2019 than floppies did, and saw....I forget the exact figure, but it was somewhere between 6 and 11% growth from 2018. And I'm pretty sure 2018 trade/OGN sales...

    This has nothing to do with DC or it's performance. This is just the economic collapse and AT&T trying to recover from investments like HBO Max that didn't do as well as expected. Everyone is in...

    I'm not even sure I *did* see "40% cuts." I caught all this fairly late last night, when I'm usually reading news articles (like, real news; politics and pandemics and science, etc). So I was tired...

    The core League is obviously safe, nobody is losing a solo there. Suicide Squad is likely safe, as is Teen Titans. Guys like Hawkman and the Outsiders are probably already dead in the water, those...

    The solo is really the only thing that worries me. Dick is absolutely too big to be dropped completely across the board. He could end up in a digital title, or get the occasional OGN, or stay in the...

    I suspect you are entirely right. At the very least, we need to stop thinking about the direct market as the primary source of revenue and top priority for DC. Hell, last year trades outsold...

    As far as direct markets go, yeah PG is straight up f*cked. If she's lucky, then *maybe* she sticks around somewhere as a supporting character, or as part of a team title like JSA.

    But if they do...

    Well, that's only for the week, but still good news. At this point, I feel like Dick needs every advantage he can get to survive the culling.

    If anyone outside the Big 6 and Harls is going to...

    Aw shucks. :o Feeling is mutual, I always enjoy your perspective.



    I think we will. I dunno how big a shift it'll be but I think we'll see something, for marketing fuel if nothing else.

    Actually, expanding the digital offerings and continued investment in the OGN's potentially opens up DC's lesser known characters more. We've seen characters like Raven (the go-to example) sell well...

    I think calling this a shift towards a "production studio" is probably pretty spot on. I'm not sure if that'll be good or not, but I think that the quality and style of content in the...
