I get all my indy stuff in trades. With other stuff....I'm not interested in coming into a book mid-run or forking out more money for. Its more or less why I drift in and out of this thread when there's LONG runs where the books are stuff I don't get and then other times it is stuff I get which results in me sticking around for a while.
While a book may be good and worth checking out, doesn't mean people will do it due to primarily 2 things: $$$ and hesitation at picking up something new over a more familiar name brand. That IMO is why Daredevil got that many reviews over those indy books that are pointed out. Yea it sucks, but there's rational reasons for deciding to not commit to picking up something despite the praise it gets.
Then there's gratuitous stuff like Batwoman with provocative covers that sicken me.
OK I lie, I just decided when Rucka left the character so would I.
