June 4, 2012 5:59 pm Seriously, what happened to the Joker's face? Are we ever going to get that story resolved?
March 12, 2012 5:55 pm I love Green Lantern, but I'm dropping this. I'm SO tired of color lanterns.
September 19, 2011 3:56 pm If I see a Lantern with a color other than green I'm out.
September 19, 2011 3:52 pm You're overthinking it. Just got with it. ;)
September 19, 2011 3:38 pm I really wish Marvel would drop this double shipping of books initiative they started. DAREDEVIL is the only Marvel book I'm currently reading because I can't afford the other marvel books I would enjoy because of my budget constraints. That being said, I can't complain about back-to-back weeks of Daredevil.
June 6, 2011 3:08 pm @spacegrass I still have a hardcover copy of KILLING JOKE sitting on my bookshelf that says it DID happen.  Did your copy evaporate into thin air?

Batman Year One was the comic that got me reading comics full time.  Not only is it my favorite Batman story, it's my favorite comic period.

I love Ghost Rider, but as an earlier poster said Jason Aaron effectively ended the Ghost Rider story for me.  I think this is where I walk away.

May 12, 2011 9:38 am @stuclach:  I should clarify -- My statement was merely an observation, not my opinion.  On average most comic fans hold the opinion that the DCU is confusing and that Marvel has better characters.

And yes, there are loyal DC readers, just not as many as Marvel.
May 12, 2011 9:17 am Marvel sells better because they have something DC doesn't -- brand loyalty.  Because of price hikes most readers have dropped DC and independent books in favor of the core Marvel titles so they can stay in "in the know".

DC does well in the top ten because most readers will dip their toes into the DCU, but only a small minority will buy the mid-to-lower tier books that don't "matter". 

Sadly, DC will always play second fiddle regardless of price of quality, because they have a reputation of having an impenetrable "universe" full of "cheesy" super heroes.
