If I was trying to expose the general masses to DC or Marvel I'd go for team books.

Avengers
Heroes For Hire
World's Finest
X-Men (one of the bajillion)
Batmn/Superman
Teen Titans
Runaways


Interesting.

Avengers spotlight - Maybe it's Cap, Iron Man & the Avengers one issue. Then Hulk, Iron Man & the Avengers.Or something like that. Or maybe there's an Avengers digest (with Avengers, WCA, Thunderbolts, etc) and a Solo Avengers digest (some combination of Cap, Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye along with non-movie characters).

X-Men spotlight - Same deal. Probably a lot of Claremont's work featured. Then do a Solo X-Men digest, which will probably have a lot of Wolverine in it.

Spider-Man spotlight
Spider-Man Team Up - Where Spidey has different costars in every issue (at least 1big name, like Cap or Wolverine) OR where the villains team up. Or maybe they combine the spotlight & team up concepts into 1 digest, I dunno.

FF spotlight/team up.

Superman Spotlight
Batman Spotlight
Flash/Green Lantern Spotlight/Team Up
Wonder Woman Spotlight/Team Up
Green Arrow Spotlight/Team Up
Justice League Spotlight

I like the suggestion of using the comics based off of Batman TAS, JLU, Batman Beyond and other cartoon tie ins.


Good ideas, but I see that as with the others, you point to the recent animated stuff.

So for you all, this would be a kids only market? No adults?

You were asking about the ol' grocery store type of selling situation. Adults tend to buy their stuff and get out. You have bored kids who are staring at the candies and National Enquirers while parents are loading stuff on the conveyor belt, cha-ching. Impulse buy.

Problem is, and has been, fighting for the prime real estate on store shelves by the check out counter. Not everyone can compete with Soap Opera Digest.

Actually, they were pretty prolific until about 20/30 years ago. All they really did was focus more with the brand on Archie, while publishing under other brands with other material.

DC could do that with Superman and Batman while Marvel has Spider-Man.

I was also meaning for the news stand market too. Basically, where comics were being sold up until the mid-80s. But that place is a good one to start given what you've said.

Up here... the fight seems to be using bikini'd celeb women to hold the real estate of the racks. So different and still :lol:
