Loved it, too. Especially the Pantheon days. Man, I loved Gary Frank's artwork. It was so cool that they reunited for Supergirl in 1996.

Dale Keown and Gary Frank back to back runs were the best period IMO.

How realistic is it to expect to triple the sales numbers of any book without a crossover or some other gimmick attached to it? Just on pure storytelling alone?

His March 2nd entry:


I checked with John Jackson Miller who knows more about comic book sales than just about anybody. And he said that since 2001, unit sales on comics are in fact on the increase. The numbers he quoted are as follows:

>2001 66.92 million copies
>2002 73.72 million copies
>2003 73.02 million copies
>2004 74.14 million copies
>2005 76.13 million copies
>2006 81.85 million copies
>2007 85.27 million copies
>2008 81.34 million copies

>Granted, 2008 was a drop off. But it’s ridiculous to try and pin THAT on the internet with the struggling economy.

>I should not have made the assertion that sales were dropping without double checking. stand corrected.

>PAD



Good he admited he was wrong, but I find it funny now that the whole entire purpose PAD had on attacking Scans Daily and thus sending the wrath of Marvel Legal department down upon Live Journal them is now mute.

PAD should have sent scans daily a thank you note as opposed to a letter from his corporate lawyer.

Agreed. His short run before Pak and after Jones is also spectacularly awesome and has one of my all time favorite Hulk stories in it. The single issue one where he hunts for a murderer. It's spectacular.

Surely none of that has to do with comics becoming really mainstream thanks to movies and such over that same time period. :P
