Richard Willis replied to Captain Comics's discussion Axel Alonso out as Marvel's EIC
"I think the reason that Alex Alonso and his predecessors were replaced is because their strategies to increase sales to retailers* have caused extremely temporary bumps in sales because of huge crossovers, stunts, renumbering and collectible covers…"

Luis Olavo de Moura Dantas replied to Captain Comics's discussion Axel Alonso out as Marvel's EIC
"I am no expert, but I feel that the simple number of titles offered on any given month is a major reason why comics have grown so expensive in a per-page basis.  Stores, even specialty ones, will only deal with so many titles at any given…"

Captain Comics replied to Detective 445's discussion Marvel Legacy Spoiler Thread
"Those lists really are useful. I've read a bunch of Legacy titles now, and here are some thoughts. Y'all chime in: Invincible Iron Man: Y'know, I'm kinda glad I missed most of the non-Stark Iron Man issues. Iron Man without Tony…"

Richard Willis replied to Captain Comics's discussion Axel Alonso out as Marvel's EIC
"In the U.S., the newsstands/newagents almost killed comics twice. In the 50s they and their distributors were refusing to carry comics because of the public perception that they were bad for kids. This resulted in the Comics Code. In the late…"

"What retail outlets sell Marvel/DC comics in Japan and other countries? Are they priced reasonably? Are they only in TPB format? If they can figure out how to market comics in other countries why can't they figure out how to do it in the U.S.?…"

Luke Blanchard replied to Captain Comics's discussion Axel Alonso out as Marvel's EIC
"Why are comics more expensive today in real terms? Possibly creators are paid more, but I would have guessed modern technology had lowered the cost of printing. The print runs are smaller, but the publishers don't have to absorb unsold…"

Randy Jackson replied to Captain Comics's discussion Axel Alonso out as Marvel's EIC
"I wonder if they'll attempt too create different comics for different markets. For instance, Spider-Man comics aimed at the Japanese market, different ones for the Chinese market, etc. It sounds like Cebulski wants do do more than pay lip…"

Captain Comics replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Ranking the Silver Age Legion of Super Heroes
"I've always liked the Legion, but wasn't the superfan a lot of people were. For example, I don't think I've re-read anything since Cockrum left the book. So I'm always asking on this thread if the impressions I had at the…"

"The two books aimed for the Asian market aren't done in the Lee/Kirby tradition, and aren't really to my taste. The UK material they did back in the day didn't really appeal to me, either, nor did their Indian version of…"

Luke Blanchard replied to Captain Comics's discussion Axel Alonso out as Marvel's EIC
"It does seem to be the case that different countries have different style, genre and format tastes. Their different distribution systems might also reach different parts of their populations. Wikipedia's article "Marvel UK"…"

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.
