    I think the main problem was they were shifting from mass market sales where they were stronger, but mass market outlets were dying off, to direct sales, where they were weaker and Marvel was...

    I agree they should have variety of genres. The funny art style suits a lot of different genres--or could. Harvey Kurtzman's style is what I'd call funny, yet he used it for his war comics. Manga...

    Here's something I'd post as its own topic, but I hate the responsibility of posting new topics. Don't you think that comic books should be mostly funny books--but for a strange quirk of history in...

    It seems mostly important to D.C. and mostly important to super-heroes. Even there, I can think of things that happened in 1985 and 1987 that were as important to the company Superman built.

    Why...

    I would think if Superman was free to be Superman, then he would be more powerful. Because of other super-heroes needing to be powerful, too, and because of plot, Superman is being weakened all the...

    As far as weather reports go, living in Vancouver, the thing that unnerves me is when they report it's going to rain as if that's terrible news. Gee, we live in Vancouver--it rains in Vancouver--stop...

    I think you guys misunderstand what the pre-Crisis status quo was and how it would work now.

    Grant Morrison essentially said his ALL-STAR SUPERMAN was where Superman would be if there had been no...

    I guess I'm the only person here who has doubts and sleepless nights worrying over the fate of the world. It's nice to see so many well-adjusted people. I'll be over here with Charlie Brown and the...

    I really came to hate SHUTTER ISLAND as I was watching it. I had a subversive idea of what the movie was about, but as it got closer to the end I realized it wasn't going to go in that direction and...

    Hurray for "Tom King," the man who created the Knight Watchman!

    I had to look this up and in SECRET ORIGINS 6 it does show that Martha died from heart failure--although she may have suffered a blow struggling with Chill as he took the necklace, so that might have...

    Oh but of course. I don't even have to debate over it. But it's torture to speculate on such things, because we all know it's never going to happen. One just has to accept this sad world we're in and...

    In one day, I can go from being full of optimism that we're through the worst of it and soon life will return to normal to being bereft of any hope and wondering if this is the beginning of the end...

    47 reveals Joe Chill as the killer and shows that Batman caught him, which is good (Bruce should catch the killer of his parents); but it says Martha had a weak heart and died from the shock of...

    Only you say, but back then a buck fifty seemed like a lot for a comic book. I remember when they jumped from 1.25 to 1.50 (with a higher Canadian price), I dumped all of the Super titles and most of...

    I don't get your point. We have numbers for Domestic (U.S.A. and Canada, but not Mexico) and we have numbers for Worldwide. What's wrong with having other numbers, so we can better understand the...

    'TEC 33 but not so much BATMAN 47. The virtue of the first Batman origin story is it's short. It just gives enough details without gilding the lily. The more rope they give themselves, the more...

    I imagine something like this happened when I went in the navy, but it's one of those things I've blanked out. The only thing I remember clearly from my medical was when I was tested for colour...

    There's no reason for you to have heard of any movie exclusively made for China. They're not banking on you seeing it. They have a captive audience and have their own theatrical system.

    From now...

    I've never found an explanation for why Marina Sirtis could speak perfectly well in every other role she had, but when it came to playing Deana Troi she had to talk like she had marbles in her mouth....

    Years ago, my mother gave me the card she got for all my shots when I was a child--I must have it somewhere. Back when I first donated blood, I got a donor card that has my blood type on it. When I...

    I'm not up on all the latest comics. My knowledge is like Sam Beckett's swiss cheese memory. But does anything really stick with the characters? Some fans seem to think they know exactly what's true...

    Never heard of IT'S SUPERMAN. I'll have to put that on my reading list.

    For me my canon is the classic Earth-One Superman (1955 - 1985) in the comics and there's not a lot whole from the cartoons,...
