  1. Poll: Exactly. That's what's interesting about these...

    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...
  2. Poll: Of course we remember. Milestone wasn't just...

    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...

    That's all true, but what is isn't what should be.

    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.

    I'm no expert on Kryptonian...

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

    I'd reference the Birds of Prey as another team that's minority-majority without feeling like a ghetto used to get the characters out of the way....
  9. Poll: Vibe *could* be fantastic in a DC multiverse....

    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...

    ?

    Batman was just an example of how poorly the direct market sells. Bats is the barometer the whole direct market uses to measure sales (unless Diamond changed their policy recently); it's at the...

    I'd like to see weekly digital releases for 99 cents (probably 5 pages per issue, to keep production costs roughly the same as they are now unless a better method is out there), coupled with some...

    You didn't like Naomi? You monster! :D

    I mean, you're not wrong about Bendis but Naomi, I think, might have what it takes to stick. It's early yet, and we'll have to wait and see how season 2...
  14. Poll: That was one of the things I loved about Naomi so...

    That was one of the things I loved about Naomi so much. Sure, there's some recognizable archetypes and tropes in there, but for the most part her story is all her own. She's not a thinly veiled...

    That's the hope, right?

    Digital can't be the *only* option any more than the direct market should've been the only option. But the industry desperately needs to expand & diversify its production...

    I think if Sideways' book had continued, he'd have been able to establish himself as a different enough character from Parker to be fine. Plenty of characters at DC and Marvel are just copies of the...

    Responded more than 2 years ago, way back on page 3. And nothing has changed. I'd still vote for John. I still think Kyle was the best GL during the Marz era. I still think Guy just gets better and...

    Or that too. :)

    A few other pro/cons for digital.

    Pro: storage space. I have dozens of long boxes full of comics. They take up a lot of space and are in my basement. And as nice as that basement is, I still have...

    The high cost of digital is definitely not doing it any favors.

    But beyond that, the distribution schedule doesn't help either. Same day digital has the same flaws as the direct market; slow...

    Well, I gotta agree that Gorilla City doesn't get enough development, it *is* an interesting concept that DC could do more with, but saying it's a viable substitute for Wakanda is.....no. Just no....

    I think Infinity Inc might actually be generation 2 actually. Which would make them older than we've usually seen; peers to the League instead of the New Titans generation.

    But I don't recall...

    Digital plateaued but I wouldn't call it stagnant. It didn't become the rival for the direct market some people thought it would be, but it also hasn't been pushed or advertised very much either and...

    Well technically the Nightwing from Kryptonian myth had an affair with the married Flamebird, which lead to her husband going from a god of creation to a god of destruction.....

    So I suppose we...

    WB may have also just set it out as far as they thought was reasonable to ensure the pandemic is in fact over by the new release date. No one wants to have to delay the movie a second time. :p
