    What I like isn't popular, but I'd certainly like it to be so it can stop catering to such narrow demographics.

    Anyway, no one is blaming comic shops; we're scrutinizing the distribution model...

    Justice League 3001 lets you jump in just about anywhere and is really fun, funny, character-driven DC superheroics. One of the few I feel is worth the price tag of an individual issue as well.

    Keep the secret ID outed.

    Focus on journalism and populist angles through the adventures of both Lois and Clark.

    This may rub people the wrong way, but only trot out the large-than-life sci-fi...

    Oh, also -- I'm trying to get out of the monthly comics game, but Vol. 1 trade pre-ordered, and I'm someone who hasn't yet read the series beyond previews.

    Oh, I know. That's already a pretty joyfully cynical marketing tactic.

    I really hope that as soon as (hopefully not for a long time) the writing's on the wall for it, they just go all out with...

    1) God oh god, please buy Justice League 3001. It's so good, but it's good in a traditionally character-driven superhero mode and doesn't often make these lists. It's the most fun book at DC right...

    Completely agreed. I think being outed is a positive step for him as a journalist, long-term, and should simply be his new status quo as they find a way to return him to his career.

    I'd really...

    deCampi avoided directly mentioning names in order to avoid libel. But that Berganza's name has since been tangentially connected says a lot.\

    While the bit at the end may have been slightly melodramatic, this was my favorite issue of the month (Yang's Superman not yet out) by some margin. It seems to be bleeding right into the next arc (or...

    Late thirties to early forties is my take, too, though it's based less on real math and more the fact that that universe ends (at least in my mind) with Morrison's holistic take. That puts Batman as...

    While this is a silly thread, I'd like to put out a serious guess that Mirage's Turtlemania (gold cover) is among, if not the, rarest indie comic with an active secondary market.

    I'll counter by pointing out that I imagine Azzarello, as someone who lists Maus before Watchmen, was likely quite sincere in his praise for the book.

    They're actually doing an Avengers crossover? I was really hoping that would happen with all the other pulpy '60s crossovers going on. When was that announced?

    I still think that would work, and better than their current system.
