I’ve been mulling this over for a few days now. Probably a consequence of:
- So many people on here (and elsewhere) indicating DC spec is a waste of time
- Seeing how very few non-Batman DC titles feature in the monthly top 50 sales
- My LCS guy sadly telling me there was no chance of obtaining a Black Adam retailer incentive as he now orders so little DC
I’m more of a collector than anything else, and as a kid DC was my company. It has so many great characters, such a rich history and brilliant past innovation. So, to me it is sad to see it struggling so much. It has become a distant second to Marvel in the movies and comics, and using CW has limited its TV success as well.
I really do believe it can (and should) sort itself out and make so much more of its IP. The question is, how will it do so, and does the current ownership even care?
