    Her orientation was switched in the New52 reboot. Since it was a fresh continuity I kinda give it a free pass. It's a huge deviation, but it wasn't breaking actual continuity since everything...

    I don't think we have to worry about the retailers on this. I mean, I appreciate the call for solidarity, and without doubt we all stand together (six feet apart, but together) in wanting to see...

    I'm fine with him. Now.

    His debut was....problematic, to say the least. But we're well past that now. Wally is back, Wallace has been allowed to grow into his own character, and he's no longer...

    As far as I'm concerned, she's at least a demigod anyway. Half a pantheon of gods bestowed her their gifts when they brought her to life from clay. She's at minimum a demigod.

    I liked the God of...

    Cool, I didn't think I had overlooked a whole mini with her, but if I had....well, I got a little time on my hands it seems, a credit card, and ebay. :p

    Occasionally, sure.

    It could be fun seeing Damian in a traditional Robin role now and then.
  8. Poll: That sounds right. The real question for her...

    That sounds right. The real question for her though, is what her digital and trade sales did, since that's apparently where she shined.



    Good. I wonder how much of that is due to her larger...

    It'll all depend on what kind of help they get from the government, banks, etc., and how long this pandemic lasts. Things *could* get real bad, but I don't think we have any reason to get real...

    By "2000's mini" do you mean that opening arc in JSA Classified, where Karen's earth-2 origin was brought back?

    There's a trade collection of that book but if you're looking for a miniseries you...

    Things will have to get a lot worse for a lot longer before the direct market is beyond recovery. It *could* happen, but if we get to the point where the direct market is beyond saving then we're...

    I suspect that in the short term, publishers will just hold off on things. Maybe they'll release digital copies, or print a limited selection of titles they know will sell even now, and other books...

    I haven't followed Kamala's sales in forever, but last I knew her book was one of the more successful ones on digital. Generally that format only pulled (I think) 10-15% of direct market sales (great...

    Well, I have...what do they call it...a undercut? Fade? I dunno. It's one of those Viking style cuts where it's long on top and shaved on the sides. So that's easy to maintain if my barber stays...
  15. Poll: Kamala did do well in the direct market...

    Kamala did do well in the direct market initially, but that bubble burst pretty quick as I remember. Her success has largely been in the digital sphere which isn't part of the direct market....

    Exactly. That's what's interesting about these artificial pushes, like with Carol. Can she truly reach the A-list simply because Marvel says so? How long does Marvel push before deciding it wont...

    Of course we remember. Milestone wasn't just "black" comics, there were people of all kinds of backgrounds and orientations and everything else and those comics were for everybody. But Milestone...

    The digital market hasn't become as big as its advocates hoped it would, but looking at how publishers have handled the format that's not a surprise. All the advantages of a digital distribution have...

    Cobb should definitely be a major rogue. And the Court should stick around too. They're overused and poorly used, so they should be put on the shelf for a little while, but the Court of Owls is a...

    I'm digging the open, high collar and the cape clasp. Actually, I think it's a really well done design. Cleaner and more consistent than what a lot of the pro's do.

    Seems a bit odd without the...

    Yup, the Nightwing definitely seemed to be a big deal in Kryptonian mythology. Saved Rao from threats even the other gods couldn't detect and all manner of things.

    It always comes down to execution, doesn't it? :p

    Vibe *could* be fantastic in a DC multiverse. I've long thought he'd do well in a Justice Incarnate style title, and be DC's "go-to" guy for multiverse adventures. Back when Vibe's solo was around I...

    They've tried branching out into new audiences.....through the direct market. That's been their big failing point. The direct market is not a growth market, no matter how hard the publishers try to...
