The biggest surprise in the December Diamond-NA comics chart is not that DC has five of the top six comics (and six of the top ten), or that DC & Marvel are in a virtual tie for market share (DC edges out Marvel for dollar share, while Marvel edges out DC for unit share), or even that DC is maintaining strong sales of both Dark Nights Metal & Doomsday Clock.

And oh my, but did he get some choice bits and explanations from those guys. It’s always better to hear it coming straight from the horse’s mouth, but here are the highlights of what was […]
Friday night at New York Comic Con, DC Comics hosted a special Doomsday Clock panel on the AT&T Main Stage.

Welcome to the Diamond Retailer Breakfast! Ever wonder what goes on at these regular-fans-can’t-get-into-panels? Wonder. No. More.
