Where the shelves are just heaving with sword and sorcery fantasy fiction by Christie Marx.
I don't read Batman (And given that i won't read it until there's a creative change, and now Snyder is getting his mates jobs on the d-list books, means I probably won't be for a while)
I've never heard of Strange Talent of Luther Strode. But this attitude of hiring an indy writer off the back off a hugely hyped, but low selling indy book and giving him a z-list book sure worked out well for Nathan Edmonson, so I give team seven eight issues, before he's replaced by Rob Liefeld.
where do you think new writers come from?
Indy books are like the minor league, and minor league teams have nowhere near the sales of the MLB, but acclaimed players work their way up to the majors - and that's the way it works (mostly) in comics
Bendis had many hyped, but low selling indy books before Joe Q brought him up to the majors - same with Snyder's low selling book, Moore's work in the UK, Morrison's early work, ect
