Default Re: Is the movie going to boost the GN sales considerably?

Comic book sales aren't being boosted by the films because the books Marvel puts out aren't very good. People who are moved to look at books at Barnes & Noble are going to take a glance at the content and put them right back on the rack.

That is what my brothers and I have done, and we were longtime Marvel fans as kids who love the genre and the characters. All of us gave up on comic books in the mid 90s because we didn't like what was being produced. The movies had a chance at luring us back, but the stuff Marvel is doing is pretty gawdawful. If they can't get people like us back, who've read thousands of comic books over the years, they have little chance of finding new readers from among the GA.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
