I just listened to Kirkman on WTF this morning, he said the same thing on there. I'm not that privy to market trends. I do know that Image is reaching new readers and expanding the comic audience. I don't think its out of the question for them to surpass DC. At the very least it's a good goal for a company to have.
This is hilarious. I can still remember being a kid in the summer of '89 and watching a review show that deemed Burton's Batman as "too dark".
I re-watched that last year, and if anything, I found it too silly.
My point exactly. It's all relative. Anyone not wanting to take their kids for moral reasons should be more forward thinking. Because 26 years from now people will be saying the same about Batman V. Superman.
@lennykanze: I didn't understand what you were asking, but reading other people responses I get it.
The idea of "legacy heroes" is hardly a new one. It's always been more a DC thing than a Marvel thing. Not sure why Marvel has decided to take up this tradition all of a sudden. I'm assuming to diversify their IPs.
