"I wasn't thinking purely about superhero comics, and the only comic that I mentioned in my initial post was WALKING DEAD. Remember that only half of the so-called Golden Age is dominated by superheroes, while the other half is best known for…"

"Yes, Vertigo started retaining some rights on the creator-owned stuff, mainly licensing to other media. As I understand it for new projects creators were cut out of negotiations for film and TV rights. So that's not really ownership, is it?…"

"If you're looking for broad trends, I'd point to the rise of creator-owned projects and imprints. Vertigo began in 1993--but by 2000 it was almost entirely dominated by creator-owned series (as opposed to revamps--including Y:The Last Man…"

Significant Comics Serials or Concepts since 2000

I quit buying comic books on a regular basis in 2005, having reasoned that I had so many that I could never reread even the ones I liked more than once.But of course the medium continued to develop, arguably becoming more "mainstream" than ever.What are the most significant serials or franchises to have developed since 2000? WALKING DEAD comes to mind, though I didn't care for the one I sampled.See More

"The 1967 appearance of Bat-Mite in WORLDS FINEST #169 *may* be even more telling. I was surprised to find out that that one was a very early script by Cary Bates, whom I didn't remember doing anything in the 1960s."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
