    It isn't fact though. That is just support from a fellow poster. We don't actually know if superhero comics are at any kind of low, because we have no book channel data, no digital data, no...

    My bet on the US domestic market is more like $865 million low estimate and $890 million high, based on its growth curve. The next three or four weekends will help narrow that down because it is too...

    Well this isn't a Dr Strange thread but I am not sure I agree with that. I think he has taken pains to run with the character, all be it split across two characters for a while, that Aaron left him....

    That's a strange stat. Where do you get that information? Can you actually prove this or are you just guessing or minimising the direct market just because it suits your narrative?

    His New Avengers book was deliberately following some of the direction established in Fantastic Four. In the F4 book the fates of T'Challa and Reed are tied together 'Beyond Death'. The end game of...

    Maybe we are talking at cross purposes. The 1998 volume of Thor consists of 85 issues. The first 79 are mostly a long story by Jurgens with multiple strands. I think it is worth reading but you will...

    The idea that Mark Waid was not a fan of Aaron's Doctor Strange run is rather fanciful. His book is directly based upon it and has embraced the core ideas as building blocks for his work.

    The endless, 'comics are dying', 'they need to change', 'in my day...', 'why can't they just go back to...', rhetoric is boring.

    Comics are not dying, they are in a constant state of change,...

    Indeed the kind of critique we are seeing her in this thread is not fan based it is critical to the core. If anyone genuinely thinks Marvel are a bunch of amateurs who can't write superhero comics...

    IMO that’s not really what you will get. The Jurgens run and the Oeming Ragnarok story have minimal connections in my reading of them.

    Seems a ridiculous prediction to say it can’t beat Avatar. It has a long while still to go in cinemas. My guess at least 15 weeks.

    So getting back to the main point of the thread, being worldwide grosses. Endgame is closing in on the worldwide #1. It has 176k to go to knock Avatar from the #1 slot based on weekend estimates. It...

    Hardly news. Nobody is claiming that variants are not a key part of the direct market. Of course they drive sales. They are by no means the only sales driver, and their existence is primarily a form...

    Given that even the original sources of Thor mythology don’t shy away from Mjölnir being a phallic symbol or, as some have argued, deliberate innuendo, I have always found the picture of Jane...

    That is one of the fun theories yes. But let’s face it, they could have hinted this if they wanted to. It wasn’t a black and white mouse for example.

    It has certainly been mentioned and theorised. We have to remember this is the one in 14 Million futures, so a few chance occurrences can be hand waved as ripples from Doctor Strange’s choices.

    We know from the narrator that they are separated. That likely means that one or other is dead. The valknut motif on Odin’s chestplate could be protecting him from death in that it could allow him to...

    It kind of sounds like you just don’t like events. Are there any events you do like? Or did you like the events until they started to repeat the tropes?

    The questions you are asking are mostly tied up with the Seige event, its lead-up and its aftermath. This is a very complex thing to fully explain without just confusing it more. Probably easier to...

    #88 has always been a favourite early story of mine. I like the way the story is based around trickster folklore. The tricking of the trickster with its message that those who seek to deceive are...
