I shall. Just had to catch up on Hickman's Fantastic Four. I'm picking up a stash of comics tomorrow & will put both FF titles at the top of the pile.

Just read Fantastic Four & FF. Very good, got that sense of adventure the FF should have. Look forward to seeing where the exploration leads & it's great to see Medusa & She-Hulk making a regular appearance.
Going to catch up on the other Now books & see what's doing it for me.

Check out Hawkeye. It's easily one of the best things on the stands right now.

I've missed Hawkeye (probably put off by the costume change I'll admit) but think I'll have to try the trade. Back issues seem difficult to find & expensive. Don't understand why some comics less than a year old suddenly rocket on price.

It's a sad state. I wonder if they will do a reboot reboot.

And here I thought every book from every publisher routinely loses readers from issue to next issue (not just DC).

Yes, FF has been great. Plus having Allred on a monthly again is amazing.

At least this made it to #19 unlike the other 52 books that have been cancelled much quicker. On a separate note, does anyone think they should make a movie of this book-it could have an anti-Twilight spin to it.

This really bites!

Ok, lame joke...but I really like this series. One less title I'm getting from DC. Interesting business model...I mean, yeah, I get keeping the higher selling titles. But couldn't sales on the craptacular Justice League floats critically acclaimed book with (agreeable) lower sales? (Wow...check it out...I still have an ounce of idealism left in me...crazy!)

Except for the The Walking Dead, that is usually the norm. But some titles lose 1,000 readers from issue to the other and some titles lose only 100.

A better question is will Didio's ego allow a reboot of the current reboot?

Well, if every comic loses readers from issue to issue, then they would go out of business. All we're saying is that DC is on the downswing at the moment.

Fair point. If DC keeps going downhill, (as I suspect they will) something will eventually have to give, either Didio or whoever employs Didio. Question is how they should reboot it. If they tried at this point, would it do more good or more harm. Perhaps more importantly, how should they reboot it? Would it be best to simply revert, or should they try to mix and match the old with the new?

The question is, at what rate comics lose their readership. Because 99% of titles lose readers month after month, that's why all the renumberings and tricks like that are so common: to attract new readers.

That's the second time of recent I've heard somebody say that comic books lose readers every month, but that can't be true, can it? Wouldn't the industry have died completely?
