Very interesting, KC.

A really strange and funny part to my story?  I became friends with this tech guy who was working on a project involving changing computers.  He was one of the guys who was let go.  About a month later, I saw him again....doing the EXACT same job!  He had gotten a new job at a Consulting Firm, and ended up right back at CitiCorp on the same project he had been let go from!

And the company was paying 1.5 times for him.

No doubt. 

Is there any wonder America is in the shape it's in??  God knows I'm no expert, but when you run a business and don't think any further ahead than 1 day, and every single action is based on saving money and cutting corners, you're gonna run into problems.

Not sure how accurate this is, but I do think DC would be making the right move concentrating on fewer titles and making them better.  Marvel needs to do so as well, to a larger scale.  War of the Realms has an unhealthy number of spin-offs.

I definitely believe in Quality over Quantity.

Totally agree about War of the Realms.  I was just checking out solits for some of that stuff.  It just goes on and on!!

To a large degree, I believe DC already has.  Action, Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Hawkman, and the Justice League books are all excellent.  All weaving a bigger tapestry in the DCU.  I still love Red Hood and Shazam has been quite good too.  I think all these books survive the cuts except maybe Red Hood and JL Odyssey.  I think some of the bi-weekly books go back to monthly and some of the monthlies become a series of ongoing minis like Naomi.  I also think we see more limited series in general.  Big name writers will get even more work.  Big name characters will get more exposure.  But I don’t see much attrition in the top tier DCU books.  Likely victims may be under performing Vertigo books and other imprints titles.

So with the announcement that DC Universe will start putting up books with a 12 month lag time I had to make some decisions.  Are there any titles that I can't afford to wait on?  I'm going to finish Doomsday Clock, Adventures of the Super Sons, and Heroes in Crisis (even though I very much dislike what they did to Wally) naturally.  Batman, Flash, JL, and JL:Dark will stay on my pull list for a time, probably until the authors change.  Everything else I figured I can wait a year on.

What about you guys?  Is the 12 month lag for DC Universe too much?  Marvel Unlimited is only 6 months and I'm finding I can wait for anything 6 months.

Not sure if I can ever go digital on comics.  While it would certainly be nice to have access to DC’s full library, giving up floppies and certain trades isn’t gonna happen for me.  The year lag time isn’t much of a factor either way.  Even if I were to try and go digital, I’d read something on Newsarama or Bleeding Cool and go out and get the book.  Nature of the beast to me I guess.

I'm actually going to do a little digital.  I never thought I would, but after checking the prices of certain back issues, digital is a lot cheaper.

Just as a matter of convenience and cutting down on storarge -- digital is very appealing -- especially for back issues. I holding a comic book in my hand, but I do like seeing comic book art on a monitor.

The storage thing is a very solid selling point.  Thumbs Up

Just compare having a large collection of vinyl records and comic books to owning the exact same stuff all digital.

I just filled up my 40th drawerbox of comics and I'm out of space.  Now I'm thinning the herd to make room for new stuff.  Selling a comic I have access to in digital format is more appealing every day.

I went digital for a few months but I missed the floppies. Plus if I'm spending four bucks on something I want it to be something I can hold.I like digital though for when i go on vacation and can read a library of comics on my Ipad.
