2 years : + 2.1%

That can't really be the reason why WW 32 sold so well is the Bombshell Variant Cover is it?

Anyone actually belive that the new Wonder Woman run might crash and burn? Like sales start to drop at a fast pace?

Is it like the average sales of Wonder Woman Solo around 30 000 as it is? (their was a boost in numbers is July I notice.)


I really don't know. I don't think that the kind of people who like Azzarello and Chiang would like the Finches more mainstream approach. I certainly won't be reading, just because the interviews with them have made the two sound completely clueless and uninspired, and I really hate Dave's art anyway. Whether or not it'll make up for that through new readers on Finch's name alone? Hard to say. Anybody who will be jumping on for that reason will be the same kind of fan DC has been pandering to with almost all of their line, so they may be stretching that section of their fanbase a little thin. Either way, I'm pretty sure DC will lose a big chunk of individual readers who enjoyed Azz and Chiang's more vertigo-esque approach.

Like Scientology!

Also, go away zryson you are a complete ass and I am glad I am allowed to tell you so here. Go back to SHH or wherever the mods refuse to let others point out your idiocy.

So you're using the Outhouse's more lenient moderating to continue and escalate a past fued with zryson? Just attacking him, really without any provocation other than you disagreed with him in the past, because you believe the mods here will let you get away with it?

I really hope they don't.

Sadly this happens with other people as well. Vendetta between two people always be carried over in other topics as well. Just look at the recent topic about TMNT reviews coming in.

Yeah, I saw that. What appeared to be a poorly worded post, due to lack of punctuation marks, was misunderstood and devolved into name calling. Ridiculous, because they were arguing the same point, but I understood where it was coming from.

B.L. just went to name calling because he disagreed with him in the past for no other reason than he can get away with name calling here.

*eyeroll* Normally I'd agree with you, but you really don't know the situation. Your belief in decency and civility is exactly the kind of thing this asshat has a long standing reputation for exploiting. It's not just the two of us. Really, I can bring it testimonials if you want. He is forum cancer.

I don't even know if we disagree on anything. My issues are behavior alone. Well, we disagree that he is some kind of industry insider who's in with the bigwigs, something he has repeatedly claimed when stating rumors (several of which have since been debunked) as facts.

But he's "civil" forum cancer so he lingers on because people don't believe he needs to be chemoed.

Well, responding in kind says more about you than it does about him.

And do not misunderstand me; I am not claiming some sort of sainthood here. I think everyone has had something like this happen to them at some point. I know personally, the only thing that saved me was a friend who had the courage to point out I had become my enemy.

EDIT: As Marcus Aurelius once noted, "The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury."

And you are continuing to exploit the lenient moderation of this forum.
