    Dark Horse still has Hellboy and his various spin off character books I think.

    Can you provide the link to this? Would like to read the article that came with it.
    The graph you mean? Sure, it came from Comichron here.

    If you were referring to movie estimates, aka Avengers beating out Star Wars, here are a few sources:

    Is it the guy who had a crusade against any Nova comic that wasn't solely about Richard Rider?

    They have a lot of video game licenses, MST3K, American Gods, and the Black Hammer universe as well. Berger Books has been doing well for them and they have a very healthy relationship with Chuck Palahniuk as well as Evan Dorkin, to boot. G. Willow Wilson and Christian Ward have a new book dropping this month via DH, too. Disney seems to like them.

    This rumor is kind of dumb, if anything, they should be shutting down the marvel cartoons not the comics.
    But either way, still dumb.

    Apparently that is happening for the most part, they've reportedly stopped production on the current Avengers and Spider-Man cartoons. There will still be animated projects, but not as many.

    Yeah, the only current cartoon with any plans past this year is Marvel Rising (I expect we'll hear about it's fifth storyline when Heart of Iron is out). There's also a Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur series planned, but that's at an external animation studio.

    I don't understand how comics serve as a test ground for new stories and characters. Isn't the population that reads comics much smaller than the population that watches the movies? Just because a character or story doesn't resonate with comic book fans doesn't automatically mean it will resonate with general audiences. What am I missing?

    The population that reads comics is much smaller than the number of people who see movies, sure, but the same is true of the number of people who read books as opposed to the number of people who see movies. But you see the worth of novels being published, yes? And you understand that a popular novel can be adapted into a successful film that will reach millions of people who seldom, if ever, pick up a book, right?

    So just apply the same thinking to comics and comic book adaptations.

    Just because most moviegoers didn't read, say, Brubaker's Cap run, it didn't stop the Winter Soldier movie from resonating with them. And that movie only existed because the comics already told a tale that producers knew would make for a compelling, exciting film.

    Considering many of the movies are already taking story elements and characters from this past decade (Black Order, Carol as Captain Marvel, Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, eventually Kamala Ms. Marvel, etc.), its clear they do put some stock in continuing to do new ideas because you never know which is going to be the most popular.
    Current Reading List: Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider, Sonic The Hedgehog, Absolute Carnage, Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man, Gwenpool Strikes Back, Runaways, The White Trees
