    Eh, not many punters this month it seems. Perhaps we've finally reached a consensus? Things are bad to say the least. The sales of Champions and related books are a joke. While nobody seems game to...

    Well, the way I see it Marvel could have 18 mainstay books (your Spider-Man and X-men etc.) plus room for 2 experimental books on a rotating basis. If one of the mainstay fails, which is to say falls...

    Honestly, I think people would appreciate good Marvel comics more if they were still ongoing with new issues. It's a serious problem for Marvel when many potentially interesting books get lost in the...

    Older versions of young heroes can only work if their solo books make money and I just don't see that being viable in today's market. The kid heroes can barely sell books as it is and I don't think...

    Speaking in strictly general terms the reputation of Marvel at the moment is that they seem to be hiring directly from Tumblr. Getting a job a Marvel used to be something writers and artists had to...

    On the contrary, the lack of action in modern comics is a pointed criticism that Marvel needs to address. The advantage of comic books is that it's a visual medium, unrestrained by the physical...

    Someone should tell Marvel that they can't actually retcon reality. I'm going to need to see those other 999 issues before I start taking this whole farce seriously. Maybe for their next trick Marvel...
