    When a book like Black Knight fails, there's a good chance there won't be a thread about it at all, or a thread with about 10
    posts. We (white folks) realize that the book had an uphill battle...

    You don't own a business, do you? Every idea isn't designed to set the world on fire, and some things require a deliberate pace with
    failures along the way. A business can't stand still doing the...

    Walking Dead started out as a little independent book. Hawkeye did pretty well for Marvel until the delays.
    Harley Quinn was by no means a guaranteed success.

    How can one side of the argument be so reasonable, yet the other side is nowhere close to rational thinking? If you're honest with yourselves
    (I know that's impossible for some), you should be able...

    Making the outfits more functional is the only way the publishers believe the general public will accept superheroes. Although
    they don't admit it, they're embarrassed by the creations that have...

    I blame the publisher for putting out a book without demand to sustain it. It would be stupid of Marvel to put out a Wonder Man book
    right now, too, even though I would be thrilled. But if they did,...

    It will go 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc, until the story is finished. Most of the Spidey ones are about 6 issues long.

    I've only read (???) those issues from the titles I've collected since I started comics again about 5 years ago, so I don't
    know about all of them, but the ones I've read were my least favorite...

    I stop by 2nd & Charles a couple of times a month to fill in holes in my collection, and I usually end up with a pretty big
    stack of those books, plus a few that I can sell or trade to...

    The purpose of the words in your example is to enhance the action for the reader. True, you can see what is going on, but having
    narration can describe something that may be unclear to the reader....

    I'm stunned that all the new readers Marvel is bringing in didn't push this book far out of cancellation range. All I see here are the same
    old excuses for not supporting the book by some of the...

    I think so. Lately, no matter how a dream starts out, it inevitably morphs into a recurring dream I can't get rid of. The length into
    the recurring dream is determined by how long it takes for...

    Were you reading Avengers in the heyday of the title, from about 130-200? Simon's return in issue 151 kicked off a run of stories that
    were every bit as good as what Claremont was doing with X-Men,...

    I've only ever bought single issues, and TPB's (for me) just aren't the same things as owning the original. I've tried, but I
    always end up buying the single issues anyway. I do think comics are too...

    He does have fans, though, and was a primary Avenger for a long time. The least they could do is resolve his situation, whether or
    not anybody uses him. Once, he was my very favorite Marvel...

    Yet you still go back every month for more of the same. How many years have you been doing that? That's a common theme with a
    lot of X-fans; They go years and years buying a book they haven't liked...

    Before Avengers Academy, there was an appearance in the 90's Captain America run. Nothing else since.

    You sure that's why you're not reading Sam's book? That just sounds like a convenient excuse for an ulterior motive.
