Heh.

DC should just sell their characters to Marvel. Maybe they can bring them back to life.

I'm kinda 1/2 joking here.


Well we'll see how Wonder Woman does in Fearless Defenders. :lol:

I know. They really would.

Yeah, DC is bleeding readers. Except for Batman, every other book is losing readers.


I really want to read Wonder Woman, but with the way DC is experiencing all these creative fluctuations these days, I don't want to invest in Azzarello's run only to have Howard Mackie take it over months after I start picking it up.

It's not bad. I'm not a huge Azz fan (Batman run...) but his quirky writing style really works for Diana. Cliff Chang's art helps too.

I hope he stays on for awhile.

I wasn't a fan of "100 Batmans" but most everything Azzarello has done I've loved.

I kill another book with my excessive trade-waiting on books that need sales stance. You're all welcome.

DC has so many Marvel 90s guys that your prediction could come true... to the ruin of us all.

I want to as well, but I'm terrified they'll screw him as they've done almost every writer they have eventually.

I just downloaded the first New 52 issues of Wonder Woman and Flash. I'm excited to read them, but not sure if I'll continue beyond that.

Shame about I, Vampire. I came to it late when I got a run of issues on eBay and have enjoyed it since.
It annoys me that lesser known series don't last. I'm no businessman but can't sales of the more popular books support those of less so?
Soon all we'll have to choose from Marvel & DC will be X-Men, Avengers & Batman...
I seem to be going against the flow here - I used to read more Marvel than DC but now this has reversed. I read a lot more of DC's output now. Marvel seem to be trying to inject realism into their comics something which couldn't be more out of place in the world of superheroes. They also seem to be grittier & more downbeat which just doesn't interest me. About to drop another 4 or 5 Marvels.

Read Fraction and Allred's FF. Makes every DC book look like 'grim and gritty' stuff by comparison.

I just picked up issue #2 yesterday. OHMYGOD IT'S SO FUCKING GOOD. Where has this Fraction been since Invincible Iron Man #25?

Already reading it. I wonder what happened to make Fraction's work go from awesome (Casanova, The Order, Invincible Iron Man 1-24) to fucking awful (Uncanny X-Men, Thor, Defenders) to sublime (FF, Hawkeye) in the course of 5 years!
