DC vs Marvel?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)

I haven't looked at or for comic books since I was a kid-but is the comic book going the way of other printed media, where it will only be available on line-either currently or in the near future?

Not yet, and not in the very near future.


Physical comic book sales have been pushing against the tide of declining sales in other print media for some time now, with 2012 showing a 15% increase in sales year on year, and 2013 showing a similar trend.

The future of comic book reading is certainly tied into digital, and many other publishers are discovering this too. Image Comics, the third biggest publisher, has revealed that 15% of its total comic books sales are from digital.

Perhaps digital comics will attract back those traditional readers who wandered away from their comic book stores many years ago.

There are more comic book titles available in print now than ever before.

The one thing about comics which I was a late-comer in discovering or having any understanding of or appreciation for, that would be the one thing which I hope isn't lost no matter what media the art of telling a very large part of the story with pictures instead of words, possibly even the majority of the story. Still-pictures, not moving-pictures.

The only one I like is Batman. Superman is okay for the sheer entertainment value, but I find the concept of him getting his superpowers because our sun is yellow to be totally ridiculous.

(I'm basing this entirely off movie adaptations because I've seen literally every one of those but haven't touched a comic book since the 1980s.) Batman is the only DC character I like at all (I find Superman's near indestructability very boring and the character himself kinda lame), but I like Batman more than all the Marvel characters. If I were listing my top 5 favorite comic book adaptations, they would all be Batman except "Deadpool." Ironman, Guardians of the Galaxy, some of the other X-Men movies and the first "Avengers" are fairly enjoyable, but I don't have any strong interest to watch them over and over again like "Dark Knight," "Dark Knight Rises" and the Burton "Batmans" (plus "Batman Forever" is a guilty pleasure because Jim Carrey is so "over the top"). One of my friends and actor in my movie was also in "Ant-Man" so I have a special affinity for it.

I am an Iron Man fan all the way!!!

The actor who plays him might have a teeny tiny bit to do with it....but I'm not sure. ;)

Oooooh, this is complicated.

Back in the day, I've always liked Marvel more than DC, but liked DC too.

Nowadays, I like the Marvel's movies way better than the actual comics. Marvel's comics aren't what they used to be. I don't like the way that they are handled. Their characters are way more familiar to me because they aren't getting replaced by sidekicks. I'd rather for them to create NEW diverse characters than change up existing characters to cater to a flighty new audience. The lack of continuity is also a turn off. Currently, I like DC's comics better than Marvel's.
