    Honestly, it sounds exciting. But I was excited for "Dark Nights Metal, and I felt it ultimately fell real flat. Like there was no real ending and all the big flashy points were just flashy points....

    I'll also add that the hardcover omnibus is really only a Marvel/DC format, so don't hold out hope for something like Paper Girls to be collected like that. At best, some creators will have the...
  3. After reading and collecting for 8 years now,...

    After reading and collecting for 8 years now, these are my thoughts:
    -Trade paperbacks are most affordable collected edition, but not worth buying if you plan on keeping the single issues. Gutter...

    In my dream world, a series of 3 or 4 JSA films would be great to tell some period piece stories, but you're right that it would probably not be enough to do them justice in one. In reality though, I...

    I'd buy a Mark Russell-Bill Sienkiewicz "The Question" book even without a solicit. But if it includes Bandit the dog as well, I'd probably buy 2 copies! Also, I'll buy Detective and Flash no...

    When, in recent history, has Batman not been the star of his own book? In fact, it's pretty standard practice these days for there not to even be a mention of Robin in an issue of "Batman." And for...

    Wow! So this time a year ago, we were talking about Iron Man being front and center of the All-New All-Different Marvel Universe. Today we realize that never happened and guess what, there's...

    Don't worry about being a noob. You're interested in comics, which is a great place to be! To clear it up for you, the issues like Batman: Rebirth #1 are going to be one-shot issues only. Then...

    Excellent points, Brian! I had not connected all of the dots, and I was just thinking of the fact that the sales numbers don't always match up. I truly admire the business savvy of successful comic...

    It's always enjoyable to get the thoughts of everyone in the industry - especially retailers. I appreciate that Brian always calls it like he sees it. I have to disagree with him on two points...

    A serious problem from the reader perspective is the shear number of titles released by both Big 2 publishers. Not only does this create competition with other publishers for my comic dollar and...
  12. I didn't mean to imply that comic companies...

    I didn't mean to imply that comic companies shouldn't push their product to earn the most money they can. It's definitely the way the industry works. What I take offense to is the glaring attempt to...

    This is such a transparent attempt to boost sales numbers. If the intent was purely to get disinterested readers back into certain titles, they would have kept normal Marvel branding. But by using...

    Fair enough. It's just scary to imagine what would happen if the Big 2 dropped every stunt and gimmick. I don't believe the industry would survive a scenario where readership drops to under 50...

    It is possible then, that you are just maturing past superhero comics altogether. If you aren't reading Marvel books and are going back to "pre-Flashpoint DC pulls", then current Big 2 comics just...
