Thor’s Comics Column writes: There’s a Comic Book Out There for Everyone [archive.org]. Given that 1.67 million people went to see the universally-panned Catwoman on its opening weekend, but only 1/4 million people bought the highest-selling comic book, clearly the issue isn’t quality. “Thor’s” theory: awareness. If more people knew comics weren’t just about superheroes, more people might buy them.
Immediately following: a list of recommended comics. Interestingly, the list includes Planetary, which I included in my own recommendations two days ago.
- Creature Tech
- Box Office Poison
- The Coffin
- Scud, the Disposable Assassin
- Terminal City
- Selina’s Big Score
- Human Target
- Fortune & Glory
- Hopeless Savages
