Winter Soldier Ongoing

I'm looking forward to this to say the least. Brubaker has been one of the best things to ever happen to the Cap mythos, and the fact that Bucky didn't bite the bullet in Fear Itself was something that I was definitely relieved by.

quote:
The recent revelation that Bucky did not in fact die during Fear Itself has led to this -- a new series starring the character, written by Ed Brubaker, the guy that brought him back in the first place. When Brubaker writes the Winter Soldier, magic tends to happen, and Eisner Awards tend to be won. Now he's got a whole series featuring Bucky and Black Widow as super-secret spies (so secret, in fact, that the world at large still thinks that Bucky is dead). Thanks to advance solicitations, we know that Dr. Doom plays a major role in the opening arc. With art from Butch Guice, this is poised to likely be one of the best-received new Marvel series of the year, along with probably being a relatively huge commercial hit. So this week might be a good time to get on board.


Brubaker. Bucky Barnes. Black Widow. Dr. Doom?

I'm in. thumb up

Ed Brubaker is Cap's best writer ever, and he's claimed Barnes as his character like no one else.

Good first issue, I hope this sticks around, unlike... Almost every other book.

if it doesnt sell near marvels standards you can probably kiss it good bye. its the in thing now so they can double ship their popular titles. its one of the ways they're keeping on pace with dc.

Keeping on pace with DC? I am pretty sure marvel out sells DC and is significantly larger company.

pre-flashpoint, yes, but ever since the reboot, dc has had a lead and they put out less comics to boot. last month marvel beat them by 1 percent or so,. but they didnt factor in the issues customers traded in. top 300, dc won. plus they beat marvel in the trades category as well.

Dude the reboot just started this year. Your post seem to imply DC regularly out sell marvel. It does not. DC is trying to keep pace with Mavrel not the other way around. They have better sales at the moment does not negate the fact they are a much smaller company who are trying to keep up with the much larger marvel. Marvel does not need to worry about being out sold by DC for a few months. There like friggen more then twice the revenue value of dc.

Also what a shocker dc reboot is out selling marvel at the moment. Of course it is, reboot always sell well at first. That will quickly change and marvel will again out sell DC. I bet anything again there revenue will be significantly higher then DC. in fact maybe even multiable times higher like it been for years.

Lets see some status here. I find that extremely hard to believe. Marvel has been making significantly larger revenue then DC since before the eighties. In many years making twice and even more then three times the money of DC. They recently were bought out by a billion dollar company in Disney. So I find it very hard to believe DC made more money then Marvel last year.

I'm not talking about money. Although, DC made more revenue per book, because they sell less books. But DC outsold Marvel in units last year, mainly because the relaunch was so huge.

January reports are in and DC swept Marvel in the top 10. They also took the unit share, while Marvel took the dollar share. But that's because they have more books sold at 3.99. While DC is holding the line at 2.99. One of the reasons many people are switching over to DC, because they can't afford the price increase.
