    Yes the comic shop or traded in the bookshop. All that stuff is gone now when I go into comic shop and that's the readers fault because the books all existed at one time

    In the 80s you could pick up comics that had the full spectrum of sexuality in graphic detail. Then they slowly starting disappearing from the shelves and new titles stopped appearing. People talk...

    I too thought vertigo hadn't had a hit in ages but actually they gave Tom king his break into comics and he's gone on to shift at least 7 million units for DC which is way more than any other writer...

    I think Shawn James should try telling himself to do some basic fact checking before anything else.

    "That kind of material is now mainstream across all genres"

    If only... I can't find anything today in floppies to rival vertigo at its finest.

    Seems very odd to relaunch it alongside black label (or after?) then say.. oh we are cancelling it to sort branding and age limits out. Hmmm... quite the u-turn.

    Sales looked pretty weak but I...

    Had to Google this. Now that is a proper comic book concept - that could be genuinely funny and cutting if done properly / or a complete car crash. Either way it's a win though.

    A reboot would kill the company after nu52 and rebirth in my opinion. Cant keep going to that well.

    Good stories will be enough to add readers. Writing across all publishers in floppies at the...

    I've been enjoying the Commonwealth arc. I dropped off years ago but a binge reading of 50 issues and I was back in again. Rick was pretty much finished as a character - I still only half understand...

    I'm only surprised they attempted another shaft film with Samuel L Jackson after his previous attempt.

    I just find Marvel to be a very cynical, exploitative company.

    I'm sure others feel that way about DC but since the 90s my own feeling is that Marvel take no pride in their work.

    Compare the price of say a copy of Nexus in the early 80s to price of book now. It's pretty much inline with inflation.

    It was $1.50 in 1983 which is about $4 today.

    As a reader I wouldn't want that and if I were publisher I wouldn't either. OG vertigo was books by weirdos for weirdos. It was drugs, sex, magic, the occult, the stupid stuff etc etc. Batman has no...

    If you have x thousand dollars you are willing to gamble then no company can offer the deal image offers or the potential rewards.
