Infrastructure.

It would cost them millions, 10s of millions to reinvest in a new printing mechanism.

(I assume there's a factory the size of ten football fields, Somewhere full of massive laser printers.)

Do they even own the "printing mechanisms"?

So jumping ahead. We have to get Peter's consciousness into something that can fight. Ergo, it's either a mechanical construct like say an LMD, more robotic like a Spider Slayer(look legit fighting Spiderman afterall) [...]
Well, Slott did take the time to briefly feature Alistair Smythe in one panel in #700...

Yes, because the problem with comics is high-quality, glossy, paper with dynamic artwork and a realistic range of colors. Go back to the pressed-pulp recycled paper and 4-color, rough artwork!

It's a problem, not the problem.

And as much as I detest Manga, the black and white format printed on cheap paper has worked quite well for them. Being more affordable means more people will buy it.

The other problem as mentioned is the focus on superheroes comics, mostly thanks to Marvel and DC.

Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

That was a good story, but it's pretty obvious this death isn't permanent from the get-go. He's in the gold Ockbot. Still, I think the premise of Superior Spider-Man is a good idea and I'll be curious to check it out.

I love the total freak out over this. I don't even read the comic and I know he's coming back. Comic book "fans" will complain about freaking anything.

Re: Amazing Spiderman #700

Doctor Octopuses Death throes this last year was amazing.

This is 11th hour bullshit.

Amazing will return when they relaunch it with Peter's return in a year or so

Anybody with a brain knows that this won't be permanent. So why bitch about it like the world's ending. Jeez...this will be reversed. You wanna complain about the execution...fine. But acting like this is permanent is lame. Comics fans can be such whiny little bitches sometimes, can't they?

Yeah, obviously Superior will run for 2-3 years, then when the next movie comes out, ASM will resume.

The comic book industry needs to ween itself off superheroes (I'm not saying stop doing them) and needs to start charging more acceptable prices, even if this means a drop in paper quality or an end to coloured comics.

This comes up over and over - it would now be more expensive to go back to cheaper paper because the equipment to handle it no longer exists.

It's not confusing at all if you've been reading the book and not just the spoilers
And if new people happen to show up their supposed to just go back to the back issues?

Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of a jumping on point?
Would you start watching an arc-based TV show halfway through the 3rd season, and then bitch that you don't know what's going on without having to go back and watch the previous episodes?

Really hate this attitude about arc-based writing. It's the same piss-poor excuse Sci-Fi gave over their treatment of Farscape, which also led to their idiotic broadcasting of Firefly episodes out of order.

This is the 21st Century. There are detailed reviews and plot dissections available on the internet if you can't be bothered to pick up back issues or wait for the trades. The rest of us shouldn't have to suffer for the sake of the moron who starts watching the film halfway through, and then annoys everyone else in the room by spending the rest of the time asking stupid questions.
