Re: What about the comics?
Even when there was a separate comics section here in the batboards hardly anybody visited and contributed to it. I know because I used to check it out and it was always a ghost town even when I did post. So most people weren't encouraged to keep going there and I'm sure just gave up on it if they were even interested in the first place.
Me personally? if I want to talk about Batman or other DC Comics I just go to the comics section here on SHH and post in the DC forums there. But even then the traffic there is slower than most other sections in this community. It gets even worse if I want to discuss comic books not published by the big 2.
The fact is 90% of the people who post on SHH are just interested in superhero movies. Where as to someone like me superhero movies are the least interesting elements of these characters. But then I'm hard pressed to find lengthy discussions on comic books on here by proxy of most posters here NOT being regular comic book readers so I just bite the bullet whenever I'm on here.
I read: Saga, Thief of Thieves, The Manhattan Projects, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, Harbinger, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, Shadowman, Green Lantern, Superman, Action Comics, Batman '66, Detective Comics, Batman & Robin, Batman, Red Hood, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Justice League Dark, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, All-Star Western, Earth 2, World's Finest, Daredevil, Superior Spider-Man, All-New X-Men
