about Hillary and Superman
Oh NOW I GOTTA debate you.
In yesterday's page, you said:
> "As I said a dozen times,
when you go to
Con and ask
> "Who's your favorite super
>at less than one percent,
know the fix is in."
a bad example because Superman is NOT that popular with the kind of
people who go to Comic Con.
The people who go to Comic Con are the
ones who show up at their comic shop every Wednesday for that
books and Superman just doesn't appeal to them currently. The
only selling about 40,000
copies a month (and to compare, this month's
issue of The Avengers sold around 160,000 copies).
Superman has only
had one really GOOD story in about 10 years, and fans tend to drift
from books they feel are just treading water.
In the last Comic Buyer's Guide poll, the top five character were
Batman, Wolverine, Deadpool,
Green Lantern and Spider-Man. Superman
wasn't even in the top 10. He has no appeal to the hard core
the publisher hasn't been putting out decent stories that comic book
fans care about, while the
creators of the comics that are at the top
of the poll have a lot of things that mainstream audiences
care about like big stories that fix past stories, revelations about
character's pasts and
crossovers with other books. You probably lost
interest just READING that last sentence,
but that is what appeals to
modern comic book buyers.
Now, with people who aren't comics fans (like you) Superman has
huge name recognition,
and the character is popular enough that the
Smallville TV show has gone on for 9 seasons.
But at Con, these are
the hardest of the hard-core, and they just couldn't care less about
Superman right now. Kind of like how casual rock fans say
from Def Leppard
is the best rock drummer ever, but musicians will name
Neal Peart without hesitation.
Perhaps you meant living drummers?
I suppose Peart was good enough to be John Bonham's roadie...
So, what does this have to
do with Kos's polls?
that Hillary came in at less than one percent were the "Click here to
and Kos's audience is the further left Dems who feel that
Clinton was a right-winger.
So, Kos's audience won't click on her
button, while the mainstream voted for her.
Kind of like how Ron Paul
won endless on-line polls,
but couldn't get more than 2% of the vote in
The Best Dressed Man In Comics
Cory, you were doing OK until the last paragraph.
Kos's polls were crooked, false and fake.
No way his readers are 99% Hillary haters.
Hell, I can't get 3/4 of my readers to agree the sun is
