"The other reason all advertisers chase Males aged 18-34 is their potential for being lifelong customers. Advertising is not aimed (primarily) at the people who already are lifelong customers. As a group, Males aged 18-34 have a high amount of…"

"The demographic that all advertisers are chasing is Males aged 18-34, who (presumably) want stories about and featuring people their age.  It's why some shows with good ratings get canceled--they aren't reaching that target…"

Captain Comics replied to The Baron's discussion Movies I Have Seen Lately
"Just watched Shadow of the Thin Man. Even as old as this is -- and show so cheaply -- there are still some gems to be found. But you have to overlook the eye-rolling "Mammy" who is the Charles' servant."

By Andrew A. SmithTribune Content Agency Are you as eager for Alien: Covenant as a face-hugger scuttling from its egg? As hungry for the latest “Alien” movie as a Xenomorph’s second set of jaws? Ready to explode into the theater May 19 like a chest-burster making his debut? Then you might be a candidate for the many Alien books published by Dark Horse Comics. Here’s a quick overview of the latest offerings: ALIENS 30TH ANNIVERSARY: THE ORIGINAL COMICS SERIES VOLUME 1 …See More

Captain Comics replied to John Dunbar (the mod of maple)'s discussion DC's Omnibus line - Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age collections
"So, Showcase #100 featured every character who had headlined Showcase. What was the deal with JLA #144? Was it every character that had a series the month before Brave and Bold #28? Not sure that covers Rex the Wonder Dog."

Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.

Thank you Captain. I hope to be on your site for many years to come. I hope I can gleen as much information from your site about 1980s comics and politically incorrect ones. Thanks for having me.

Hey Captain, Someone named Ann who joined just two hours ago has tried to "friend" me, and wants to form a long term relationship with me! Lucky me! Can we investigate & ban this come-on? Thanks.
