WHAT’S ALL THE HUBBUB, BUB?
Timed to coincide with the release of (All-New Marvel NOW) Black Widow #1, Widow Week is a tumblr celebration of all things Black Widow! Share gifs, graphics, meta, fanmixes, fanart, crafts, thoughts and #feels. The above prompts are just a jumping off point— any participation is welcome. I’ll be tracking the #widow week tag and reblogging here on FYBW all week, January 5th-12th. Please spread the word!
no problem! tbh I…forgot what year this was and I was searching through 2012’s sales numbers I totally understand why you got a bit confused there
The title has also been steadily shedding readers, even allowing for the post-Brubaker, post-“this is the first issue it will be worth money must buy extras” frenzy. It’s one of Marvel’s oldest books, starring one of its two or three oldest characters (Cap is behind only Namor and the original Human Torch at this point for longevity), and it’s what, selling about 35,000 copies each month?
Worse than the sales figures, though, is this simple fact: there is going to be a new Captain America movie coming out in April. The fannish interest has been building steadily, and the non-fannish buzz is that this is going to be a very, very strong entry in the MCU, possibly up there for quality with Iron Man and the Avengers. A lot of people who haven’t picked up a Captain America comic book are going to stop by the comics store or the newsstand and take a look -And will probably put the book down without buying it, or maybe - *maybe* - pick up a trade paperback of the Winter Soldier collection that Ed Brubaker wrote almost a decade ago. This is especially true for women, teenagers, and girls who want to see more of Natasha Romanoff (they’ll go to her new book) or Sharon Carter (who won’t appear at all because not only is she dead, NONE of her alleged friends or co-workers has mourned her except in relation to the pain that Steve is experiencing thanks to her death). I also don’t think female readers will particularly like the fact that Jet Black (what a horrible name!) is supposedly around 14-15 and dresses like a stripper in a bondage club, and has breasts that the average 20 year old would envy.Is this really what Marvel wants its fans to see when they like the movie and want to read the comic? Really?
priyaaaaaaaaaaa you don’t want to see that trust me
Okay but seriously Deadpool Kills Deadpool and Hawkeye are brilliant. Like, say what you want about Captain America sucking and I won’t correct you because you’re not wrong, as much as it hurts to say that, but there’s no shame in losing to Deadpool Kills Deadpool.
I can’t speak to Afterlife With Archie but now I kind of want to pick it up.(via
Um, you mean it is selling lest than one of the best comics of the year (hawkeye) and hugely popular character (Deadpool) handled by a very smart writer (Bunn) and Spider-Man who is always a cash cow. There is also always a big drop after the first issue. Captain Marvel dropped by almost 50% and if you think that KSD isn’t just killing it with Carol then I’m not even sure what to say to you.
I’m not saying Captain America is amazing right now but your facts aren’t really backing up your point. It’s fine if you hate it but the sales aren’t horrible, Jan sales look to be at #23 over Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk and Thor. It’s not in any more danger than any of those.
uh I don’t…know where you’re getting your numbers? I’m looking at january of 2013’s sales and cap was #23 so you may have gotten your year wrong there?? cap is at #55 in october 2013, behind iron man, the indestructible hulk annual, thor, and deadpool. sooooo yeah.
Petition to keep Black Bolt’s crotch arrow tho bc it’s an A+ crotch arrow
