    September 14, 2011 8:01 pm @Hawkboy, when I say adult, I just mean I don't want it to look like a kids book. Over the recent years DC has mostly relegated this characters to be for kids. Meanwhile they have batman kids titles and adult titles. I don't mind there being a kids title, but I really want something that I can enjoy as well. I'm fine with an all ages book. Just don't make it look like its meant for 6 year old's.
    September 14, 2011 2:26 pm A Mark Waid Captain Marvel would be AMAZING! I'd hope that they decide to do a more adult oriented book, or at least something that doesn't look like its for little kids. If they want to do a separate kids title as well that's fine, but we need an adult title.

    September 12, 2011 2:32 pm I pulled 21 books this week. I don't' think I've ever bought this many books when I wasn't at a con, in my 25+ years of comics.
    September 12, 2011 12:31 pm I'm at a weird place with comics right now. I'm actually buying more comics then I think I ever have before because of the new 52. At the same time part of me doesn't want to do physical books anymore. I may switch to all digital very soon . . . except for the fact that its much cheaper to buy physical books if I order online . . . man that's retarded.
    September 12, 2011 9:04 am Really good podcast. I liked the 52 discussion. I wish Josh had also had a chance to read all of them. It almost makes me think its a shame they weren't bought by Comixology instead. Then they could get all the issues with no problem for review. One of the things I was interested in is if Josh decided to pick anything up digitally. I believe he had made a comment before on a video show where he said he would love to go all digital. Personally I'm locked into all 52 for the first 3 months. I'll give them all 3 issues to sell me on whether or not I'll keep with them. Thanks to the DCBS 50% discount it makes it a lot easier. I just have to wait a little bit before I can read them all :(.
    September 10, 2011 1:29 pm If it is your sign I still can't see why you would have a sign like that. As someone that brings an 8 year old into the comic shop with me, it would cause me to just stop going to your shop. Perhaps some people don't mind what children see, but it really just seems to be part of whats wrong with the industry today (not gearing things more toward the readers of the future). Good luck with your store though.
    September 10, 2011 1:20 pm @Neb, with the new 52 DC set it up so owners could return most titles that they ddin't sell for a very small fee (it comes out roughly every 1 book they sell would potentially cover 7 returns) so there really was no excuse not to over order most of those products.
    September 10, 2011 10:16 am I mostly like the LCS I go to. The biggest problem is that one of the guys that works there kind of rubs me the wrong way a little. He's not a bad guy, but he's not the type of person I would hang out with. He feels a little bit like the Simpsons comic book guy. I think its gotta be hard to strike a perfect balance between being friendly and personable to being professional. I can see where the people working at the store want to be friendly and personable to get repeat business and generally make their day better. At the same token at some point in your conversations you are probably going to rub someone the wrong way at some point with you're opinions. Very tricky line. Recently because of the new 52 I've decided to check out DCBS for their large discounts. After ordering from their and mostly enjoying the experience I think I'll be doing it more often and only going to the LCS for things I might have missed. I'm ordering a lot more books because of the discount, so at least I feel like I'm helping publishers, but I do feel a little bad about the revenue lost to the LCS.
    September 10, 2011 10:05 am Maybe if you count Graphic.ly . . . but thats a stretch especially since Graphic.ly owns them.
