All the political gak aside, I'm looking forward to this. I might actually see if I can buy it in my local comic shop.

Courage and occasionally honor.

Where do you get the digital sales info? I'm not aware of anyone who publishes the information although admittedly I follow the subject peripherally.

All sales data is coming from Comichron, both physical and digital.

I wasn't aware that they published monthly data on digital. I've only seen that referenced in year reviews in passing. Are the exact sales figures per issue behind a paywall or did I miss it?

Most come from ICV, so I don't think so, but digital sales seem to include all digital sources (meaning it's not only digital comics but Amazon and stuff, I think).

That said, that's only US sales. The rest of the world also buys comics

Right behind you.

Biggest problem there is that you're assuming it was "for a quick buck and as a middle finger to their fanbases".

I'm only peripherally into comics(most of my purchases are trades or the "Klaus" stories from Boom! comics), but even I was aware that what you were describing was part of a built-up arc.

Hell, the Thor stuff is supposed to be part of the next movie if I remember right. It wasn't just "ermahgerdladythor!" or "ermahgerdladyironman!". They were different characters, effectively, taking up the mantles of heroes that existed.

Hey all, lets keep the topic on Marvel and Marneus Calgar, I've removed a whole bunch of politics/identity posts & responses that really have nothing to do with Calgar's story being told by Marvel. It also really doesn't help when people drop controversial language and bunch of links and then say "oh don't respond to this"

Art styles aside I'm about burned out on HH and other novels. I wouldn't mind some literal mind candy to rot my brain with, even if the demographic they are shooting for is the YA group. I've probably read worse.

I'm curious about how this reflect on US comic books though. I may be biased, because my country is apparently the second biggest consumer of manga (the first being, of course, Japan), but here it's Manga >> Franco-Belgian bande dessinée >>> Comics.

France is a bigger comic market than either the US or Japan. However France's comic industry leans more heavily towards adult/young adult Fantasy and Sci-Fi rather than children's superhero comics.

Here manga is really big too, but I feel that in general we're a bit more eclectic: we read everything and anything.

I think there’s a huge split here between comic fans who are more accepting of styles and looks, knowing from many comic lines what things look like, and then 40k fans who don’t (as much or at all) delve into the comic world).

Then people riling for no reason, with the will they be in mcu, or marvel games etc (which is all irrelevant as this is marvels comic arm, no deal with any other part of marvel (or should we say Disney) at all).
If there were we would see those shows being produced by one of Disney’s arms.

Potentially, particularly to those in industries of media, they know that the big things are coming in the film and tv, cartoons, and big promotion for 40k to mainstream.
They want to get the comic line in now as popularity will soar, and if they already have the comics, and several released, it would see a big surge in sales there too..

In your analysis, do you make the distinction between comics, bande dessinées and manga? It's really considered differently here, and things that are staples of the US comic book industry just don't translate over to bande dessinées. The usual bande dessinée is released directly as a hardback, with a creator-owned IP, and no shared universe. This makes for something very different from the shared-universe, corporate owned IP of comics. As far as I know, manga is somewhat in between comics and bande dessinée in this regard. They have less shared universe than comics, and series usually don't get multiple writers and illustrators, but they have a more serial release style, and a bit more corporate control over how a series develop than bande dessinée.

"Our fantasy settings are grim and dark, but that is not a reflection of who we are or how we feel the real world should be. [...] We will continue to diversify the cast of characters we portray [...] so everyone can find representation and heroes they can relate to.
