The sales numbers for the comics direct market have been less than stellar, which have caused some to say that it is time for comic fans to make a stand. “Ask not what comics can do for you, but what can YOU do for comics.” All true comics fans must rise up to do their share to save the comics market. But do comics really need saving? Tune in to hear Just Bill’s two cents on the subject.
It’s that time once again… time to see what comics managed to stay on Just Bill’s Favorite Comics Rack throughout 2010! Which publisher leads the pack? What previous Rack-worthy series have returned? What new titles have graced the rack in 2010? Listen in to find out the answers to these questions and more!
[Note: Some issues of Detective Comics featuring Batwoman also made the rack this year, but due to the fact that this episode was done TWICE, it was accidentally skipped and omitted during the actual recording.]
