    Careful Dave. They might make him Warrior again [hopefully with a modified look and powerset that isn't easily abused] at some point. They'll only be able to justify both Real World and In-Universe for having so many Earth GLs for so long. Guy and Kyle are the expendable ones in this current "Diversity" push.

    These articles give the long-term picture. The first shows the sales from 1950-1987.

    The second numbers are from 1991 to 2015. Marvel's bankruptcy gave DC a chance in the late 90s that it couldn't capitalize on, and the status quo soon reasserted itself.

    Pretty sure DC was within 1-2% of Marvel at the beginning of the New52 cause every #1 issue [even for the shittier books] sold out of their first printings.

    This isn't the first time it's happened. I think around Infinite Crisis DC was slaying as well as the Death of Batman era later around Final Crisis.

    True, but DC has pulled within striking distance of Marvel for the first time in a half century. Take away Star Wars and DC would be in the lead.

    I figured a six issue story is a six issue story. Doesn't matter how many pages. As the sole writer I'd imagine you get paid for the whole thing and in the artists' case an issue by issue basis. Some pages barely contain any dialog, you gonna pay that writer the same thing the artist is getting for that one page?

    A writer likely gets paid for the whole story, the artist by the page or by the issue. If editorial is telling the writer everything to write and not really letting them do their job, then they're probably making less money and getting twice as aggravated while looking into going over to Image...
