    Yes, this is true.
    Moving to 'specialty shops', as they were called back then, led many readers without access to a comic shop to become lost and move to other comics.

    I was worried that Bendis would mean: super-decompressed stories with out-of-character dialogue.

    Legion suffered a similar fate with New Teen Titans.
    Both were DC's biggest sellers between 1980 and 1986.

    I agree.
