The NZA Posted January 6, 2003 Share Posted January 6, 2003 Alright, I've read a bit on this on a national level, thought I'd ask around the board: Despite some status with recognizable pop-culture icons (many of which getting big-budget movies these days) and a number of good films based on the non-superhero ones, many people, after discovering my interest in comics, reply "Yeah, i used to love X-Men back in the day! Haven't read it in years, though." This is ruling out those foolish enough to view the medium as a "little stock market" (read: they're not worth a lot), but many proceed to ask how the favorite character is doing. Despite a movie in that character's name and an easily approachable starter book (i.e., the Ultimate line), people simply don't pick them up. Common reasons are price, cultural view (Us Americans still see these things as childish, often), lack of availablity since they left the direct market (Comics are often only found in specialty stores), etc. So what's your reason, and whY? C'mon, this could be interesting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
