March 4, 2013 12:25 am Marvel will be talked about when they are producing great books to talk about, The bias thing is silly,, they read the books they enjoy, and I'm sure sometime in the near future Marvel will have a bunch of good books to talk about, but right now isn't that time.
February 3, 2013 7:52 pm The dawning of a new era. Really good start guys.
November 19, 2012 7:19 pm Sorry for being confusing. I know we are comparing image against Marvel or DC books, What I'm trying to say is that even though there are differences in producing the comics at Image compared to producing them at Marvel and DC, the higher price at Marvel and DC isn't justified per the fact that the big 2 can (and do) create books with a lower cover price and still make money on those books. I understand why they add an extra dollar to their best selling books, it's good for the share holders short term profit, It's just too bad that Marvel or DC can't look at it the other way and make the best selling titles the least expensive, trying to grow the fan base and get new younger readers to read those books.
November 19, 2012 7:09 pm "Economies of scale" like in your iTunes TV example, doesn't seem to be working at Marvel or DC, since the best selling books are the most expensive.
November 19, 2012 7:00 pm "Do you mean other than the economics of producing a Marvel and DC books vs. producing an Image book being completely different?" Completely different yes, But something that is done all the time, Marvel and DC have plenty of books that are 2.99. At that price that books supports the writer, artist, colorist, letter, editors, and publisher, and who ever else is working on the book, and still makes a profit on top of that. So if that is the case, Why would lower selling books be less? and higher selling books be more? That answer is Marvel knows that people will pay the extra buck, so they make the books higher priced. Its a way the corporation makes more profit, it has nothing to do with the actual cost of producing the issue.
November 19, 2012 6:51 pm 3.99 for 20 pages of story and art is too much. And that is what marvel has been giving us. Then again, I had no problem with the price jump of Prophet because there are more pages and it's worth paying more to keep the series around.
November 16, 2012 2:27 pm This book is amazing.
November 13, 2012 2:40 pm Wow, really surprised that people didn't follow the Lori getting eaten part. They showed the bullet in the ground right where her head would be> We see all the blood and mess where Lori's body was > They show a zombie, which was very clearly a male with short hair, Also the pants were obviously too small, and it was delirious because i was full, so it was easy to tell that the Zombie just ate Lori. IMO
November 13, 2012 2:28 pm I though it was very clear that Carl shot her in the head, Rick found the bullet in that spot stuck in the ground. Then he sees a zombie that is super full and freshly fat, It was very clear that the zombie ate Lori.
November 13, 2012 2:24 pm Who was the dude(in the comic) that was locked with all the zombies and we thought he was dead, but then it turned out he killed them all with his hammer, and then after that he was Rick's right hand man. I think they might try that story line out except with Carol. At least I hope they give that storyline to carol.
