    Miller is given an outsized importance because of the cultural significance of DKR's. He hasn't done anything of value or quality in 20 years, but DKR's is still one of two of seminal works in...
  2. Books that no one but a small minority in the...

    Books that no one but a small minority in the last 30 years have read have had a greater influence on perception of the character among comic fans than one of the most popular and widely read comics...

    DKR's has outsold Man of Steel likely 5 fold by this time. People who don't read comics regularly, have read DKR's and couldn't pick Bryne's Superman out from Bendis'.

    The obvious points of...

    We're not talking about Superman's general public perception though. We're talking about comic book's trying to "fix" Superman. Miller is a far greater influence on comic book creators and readers...

    Donner maybe for non-comic readers. Bryne and Man of Steel have a fraction of the influence that DKR's has had. They started walking back Bryne in the 80's. We've been seeing people still playing and...

    DKR's is not just an alternate future story. It, along with Watchmen, are the single most influential comics of the last 40 years. It's driven the characterization of Batman (and Superman) for the...

    The comics code required that police and other authority figures be shown in a good light at the time. So it's not like the status quo for Superman was any different than any other character. It was...

    The O'Neil soft reboot was likely the first overt attempt to fix what was "wrong" with him. I think it really didn't become a problem until Miller turned him into a joke with Dark Knight Returns....

    I'm sure it is in no small part because it was when I got into Superman, but Tom Grummett is more or less the "default" image I see of Superman when I think of him. His issues in the...

    Is there literally any evidence of out of market advertising having any impact whatsoever on comic sales? Ever? Black Panther had a billion dollar movie and its selling in the 20k or teen range...

    And that assumes issue number is the common denominator as opposed to time on the run, which actually is a about the same for both right now. Rebirth also had a line wide relaunch behind it, was...

    How much of that could be attributable to a drop off of the speculators ? Superman and Action were in the low 40's by February 2018 as well, but were charting in the 20's at that point.

    I don't think it is actually. He revealed his identity to Melody Moore telling her he'd be revealing it to the world in a day or so and if she can keep it quiet he'd endorse her. Then the invasion...

    By the Apokalypse arc is was ranked at 35 and 36 with 47.8K then 45.4K in sales (for the 34th and 35th issues). Action got a boost into the 20's in that time frame with the lenticular covers for Oz...

    Doesn't really change the reality that the entire market has contracted significantly. If you look at the rankings over the years, the sales numbers that would put a book in the back 50 in 2013-2014...

    The market almost looks like it's at the point where if it's not a big event, AAA tier creative team, or Batman/Spider-Man, 30-40K is doing pretty well.

    You click on the "fused" tab in the Comichron chart and it combines the covers. Otherwise, since the variants have a higher cover price they are counted separately.

    It's been a while since I watched it, but he has some of Clark's & Lex's memories. He's presented initially as being quite childlike, but he has flashes of memory from Clark and Lex's lives. For...

    Buffy recast Willow after the first pilot. I think even most recently Stumptown recast Jake Johnson for someone else.

    They either must be really confident in the script and cast they have...

    I voted good. I really like Hoechlin and Tulloch as Clark and Lois. Hoechlin really nails a take on Superman that I have enjoyed. It's a quiet confidence, kindness, and a little edge from his first...

    It's not bad. It's set in its own continuity that is really odd for anyone familiar with the mainline stuff, but for a YA book it's pretty standard stuff. It did well enough to warrant one or two...

    An Into the Spider-Verse highly stylized CGI animated movie would be spectacular. I don't know that live action would do it justice.

    If you look at it through the idea of various “brands” the 5G concept could be the “future” brand to the classic takes. I don’t think it necessarily means it all has to be consistent top to bottom,...
