    Those low Jimmy and Lois numbers break my heart. I so wanted them to do well.



    I'm not sure what to make of Legion's sales. On the surface, 75,000 does seem like a good number, but DC sunk so...

    Rucka confirmed as much in an interview. He said it never got off the ground and it wasn't happening, or something to that effect. But the point was, it's not limbo, it's DOA.

    I'd be okay with tie-ins in theory if it wasn't a maxi-series. Since Rucka only has 12 issues to work with I want 12 issues of pure unfiltered Lois story with out any tie-ins to any other events....

    My reservations with 14 are simply that Clark was about that age at the beginning of Smallville. I want to see different ground covered. That said, if they want to get Jon in on the action I...

    The one thing that makes me unsure is the timing. Would they be casting for a pilot filming in March now? I feel like pilots don't usually cast this early, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Most likely for a pilot.



    What's the source on this? Not questioning, just curious.

    Uh, no. Jor-El essentially kidnaped Jon...twice. Once during the Oz Effect when he was trying to destroy the world. Sure he was crazy and brainwashed, but this was the only context either Lois or...

    I would not be surprised if Legion #1 pulls in a decent number. DC has been pushing the heck out of it, even going so far as to offer free Legion rings with the first issue. However, any success the...

    So it seems Action's 11,000 unit boost last month was more likely due to the card stock variant than Naomi's presence, unless speculators had interest in Naomi's first appearance with Superman, but...

    True, but it's still sold better than many (non-Batman) first issues we've seen in recent years, and most likely it will level off higher than a number of ongoings.

    Yeah, it's selling better than a lot of DC ongoings. So my feeling is that it's more that DC doesn't want to than DC can't.

    Keep in mind this is before the card stock variants come into play. Batman 78 didn't have one, but Batman 79 might join the top ten before the end of the day.

    Plus, Jon as a kid seemed to be more appealing to modern youth culture. If DC thinks Legion is going to do a better job of that, they may be in for a rude awakening.
