I think they didn't do that because the 90s were the dark ages for comics and comic properties and it looked like superheroes were on the way out with Marvel and DC suffering because of the crash, and comic book properties (like the Phantom, Shadow, Batman Forever) not really doing well either financially or critically. They didn't seem like they were worth buying.
