Forget about all that there is to see at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, what about all that there is to buy? Prepare to shout at unsuspecting vendors “Shut up and take my money” (which The Beat doesn’t condone) after you see some of these standouts among the piles of convention exclusives. Just about everyone […]
It was one year previous, May 2016, when the DCU Rebirth Special dropped, and the following month when Rebirth started in full. Which would make this a good time to take stock and see what sorts of effects Rebirth has had on DCU sales.
Finishing up our look at the May sales band charts, it’s time to contrast the relative health and performance of DC and Marvel… and we’ll throw in Image just for giggles. Standard disclaimers: The numbers are based on the Diamond sales charts as estimated by the very reliable John Jackson Miller. These charts are pretty […]
So how’s DC doing? Gently sliding to the right. They’re not collapsing and the DCU sales aren’t piling up in the dreaded 10K-19K category, but that upper list keeps shrinking.

…but don’t get too carried away crying sexism, THEY SAY it’s standard operating procedure at the still gun-shy about superheroes studio. THR reports that, contrary to what everyone has assumed, director Patty Jenkins was NOT signed for an option for a second Wonder Woman film (which is inevitable given the huge reaction to the first […]
About a year ago, I remember fretting to some colleagues that maybe the American public’s love affair with superhero movies would end just in time for Wonder Woman to flop, and that would be the end of female led superhero films. I know it seemed unlikely, but Wonder Woman’s treatment in Hollywood has been so […]
In the critical world, it’s not exactly high praise to say Wonder Woman is Warner Bros. and DC’s best film in the recent line-up, given the poor reactions to both Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad. So to get the obvious out of the way first: yes, Wonder Woman is the best, by far.
I’ve been tracking the woes of Warner Bros. for a while. Every year I make a pilgrimage to Hall H early on Saturday of Comic-Con to see what the Superheroes are up to and every time I’m forced to sit through agonizing previews for surefire turds like Pan, The Man from UNCLE and Skull Island. […]
