Thousands of DC sales prove otherwise.
Also, it's the LATE Mr. Toth. He died with these lamentations on his mind. Valid lamentations if you get past manga and indie comics.
All is not well outside your ivory tower.
derram wrote:Yes, and your missing my point. Sure things suck. I can't watch the majority of television programming for that very reason. But I don't think we should stop broadcasting the stuff. Hey, if it makes somebody happy, why not let 'em have it? It'll keep the dumber ones occupied.
Make Something Better. Don't just complain about how much things suck and then stroll down memory lane, "cause things were better back when."
derram wrote:I might be idealistic, but hell, I started with DC and Marvel. For awhile, I thought thats all there was, and thats because in the early 90's, when I started and then stopped reading comics, thats all I could find. However I got older, tastes developed and I found other things. I fell in love with anime and manga for quite awhile.
Change happens, I started reading comic books again about two years ago, thanks largely to the internet. And thats another topic all together, web comics are getting huge, why worry about a publisher, if you manage to get a fan base....
