Stir the Pot Saturday: Week 19
Welcome back, everyone! Just a quick reminder of what our goal for each and every Saturday is: Stirring the pot is the act of causing trouble for the sake of your own amusement. So we here at Comic Booked would like to formally invite you to discuss, debate, and start some shit talkin’ about the characters, the creators, and the storylines given to us from the industry we all know and love, hate, and love to hate. So let’s quit wasting time and start the mud (or web) slinging!
This Saturday’s question: Would the comics industry survive without the “Big Two” around?
If DC went away, would Marvel survive? If Marvel said bye-bye, would DC pick up the slack? If one, or both, decided to call it quits, would the industry as we know it survive? Would companies like Image and Dark Horse rise from the ashes of the superheroes and their creators? Would web comics take over? Would anthropomorphic, fantasy, humor, and war comics finally get their time in the spotlight? Do you think one company would buy up the rights and keep the legends going strong? Or do you think something much more outlandish and creative would happen instead?
So go forth and debate! But be sure to back up your responses. Don’t be scared. And don’t give up. After all, no one likes a quitter. And you’re not a quitter, are you?
