Image, IDW, and DarkHorse should make some kind of coalition to up their sway in the market. They're about 90% of what's good in comics today. DC and Marvel are just stale, Convergence, and Star Wars reflects that perfectly.
All the new readers in today's market are being attracted by the creator owned books. I've gotten a few people hooked on comics, and none of them even want to touch DC or Marvel (Excluding Vertigo).
I only have two books from DC left on my monthly list, as a big DC fan since childhood. Wonder Woman and Batman. I'm about to drop Wonder Woman, and having the same thoughts for Batman. Haven't touched anything Marvel for the last year, the movies are enough for any Marvel fix I need.
All my top titles are Image right now. I only have a few Marvel titles going (one just ended) and one DC (Fables but that's more Vertigo and that's ending too). I only buy trades, so that's what I look at on here. And the people I got into comic like creator owned stuff too. Just got someone to read Invisibles.
