I was at my comic book store yesterday to play some Dice Masters and the employee that runs the store informed me that 30 Marvel titles have print runs under 20,000 copies and 10 of those titles are under 10,000. This just proves nobody wants to read about politics and SWJ issues in comic books. They want action/adventure.

If Disney didn't buy Marvel Comics, Marvel would be out of business right now.
Guardians of the Galaxy ripped off Farscape.

...No, this just proves that people don't want to read badly written books.

Yep, plenty of white male lead books in that group of underperformers. Foolkiller is the lowest selling Marvel book. No politics, no SJW strawman, just gory action and a white guy. Star-Lord selling 12k and it's actually getting good reviews for it's art and writing. And it's a book filled with action and adventure according to reviews. Black Widow, a book with not one hint of politics and is straight up spy adventuring and f***ing incredible action is only selling 17k. Ultimates, again another book packed full of action and hardcore scifi with no mention of race or gender or politics is only selling 17k too. s***, its evdn all about the cosmic side of Marvel you dudes are always clamoring about yet nobody is buying it. I guess, Vonvile is one of those dudes who sees the book with with 3 women on the cover and 3 blacks and mumbles "SJW" before passing it over on the racks lol.

How many regular dc books are selling under 20k not counting stuff like vertigo. Print comics are dying Marvel and dc just do not have the talent to produce good books any more.

This is all there is to this. There's way better options for those who either trade wait or buy digital.

Ultimates bombing really hurts. That book is amazing and I love the random shoutouts to old New Universe characters (Your team is called the Troubleshooters and there's a Spitfire on it? I see you.). There's hardly any books out there really touching on cosmic Marvel. Basically the only books that are are selling badly (this, Silver Surfer, Nova). US Avengers is another one on the bomb list which sucks as it's my favorite Avengers title at the moment.
