If only DC published more Batman titles. If they were all number ones,they'd be in the lead every month! :lol:


In Marvel Months, you can replace Batman with Wolverine and get the same result. ;)

Perhaps. But sadly, Marvel hasn't been pushing any of their cosmic characters as successfully as DC has with Green Lantern. DnA are doing great work on Marvel's cosmic titles, but they don't get nearly as much attention as the X-books or Spidey (which is a damn shame).

Wow! I will have to LOLtron this later. When's the last time this happened?

Another good question, has the industry gained sales, or has Marvel lost some?

You can at least rest easy that the second issue won’t be #1 until months from now. :P

Honestly, if the best Marvel can come up with is "Fear Itself," DC's got a good shot to win more times than they lose next year.

And I agree with much of the Bleeding Cool analysis. Marvel's flooded the market with crap and those books just sit on the shelves. I hope Alonso can turn it around. Better Marvel books means more competition which usually helps the market in general when both of the Big Two bring their "A" game.

Fear Itself just sounds really, really uninteresting.

But who knows.. could turn out to be good. On paper, though.. yeesh!

Heh. If I were to be serious for a moment, I would say he leaves the Marvel line better than when he took over, but not as strong as he could have left it. In large part due to the glut of overpriced inessential minis and the way Marvel tried to force the $3.99 & up pricing on books that couldn't support the increases, and in combination with the economy caused readers to look to those books first when trimming their pulls.

Personally, as someone who is currently reading more DC than Marvel, Fear Itself is more interesting to me than 'War of the Green Lanterns' and while I'm not sure about Flashpoint, I will buy it regardless and it's nice to see a Flash related event.

Stuart Immonen is reason alone to buy Fear Itself for me, there are very few artists as good as he is at the moment, and that's at any company.

No interest in Fear Itself whatsoever.
