Smaller companies will likely never go away, they go for a niche audience and that's enough for them to survive. Now comics will likely never be as big as they were, to me they missed the chance with digital. They should've been there day 1 with tablets having comics very cheap, I'm talking like $0.99 or less per new title to get new readers. You can still charge the normal price for the niche market that buys physical but you get new readers online, tons of them. They've kind of gone that direction very slowly but its too little too late.
but i really think Digital is one of the things that's actually helping keep it all afloat?

ultimately, time will tell how things will go?

i was enjoying it in the beginning of the run, but then it just became one unenjoyable cross-over after another. a real shame!

The entire comic book industry outside of indies and smaller publishers needs to crash and burn.

Evan Shaner and Jesus Merino are definitely decent artists!

they'll probably be on one of the Superman titles?

Scott Synder reportedly no longer writing Detective Comics, but a third Batman title focusing more on the rouges' gallery. Apparently DC did not want Synder overshadowing Tom King's debut on Batman

For real!? The ONLY consistently successful Batman writer of the New 52 and they aren't using him?

Unbelievable.

i had a feeling Snyder wasn't actually going back to Detective once it was announced to be bi-weekly as well.

i'm glad he is getting a Batman book, and also glad it's not going to be pushed on us twice a month.

DC really burned him out!!!!
he's probably sick to death of having to jump through hoops for them, putting on their dog and pony show?

it all falls on Tom King's shoulders now.
good luck dude! you're gonna need it!

Man, Batman #50 was TERRIBLE.

Giant Bloom versus Giant Robo-Bat but it's BRUCE in this one? Terrible story... the only good parts were Bloom before he turned into Bloomzilla (he was actually a pretty interesting character) and the Joker/Bruce stuff.

MAN, that Joker/Bruce stuff.

DUDE I KNOW RIGHT???
i bought TWO frikken copies of that crap!!!! TWO!!!!!
i've been collecting this series since #1 and like to sometimes get doubles of major issues that i plan on reading the hell out of and still have a mint copy for my collection.
MAN!!! what a stinker!!!! >.<

the whole issue it was like Bloom just kept magically pulling new powers out of his POSTERIOR!!!

i don't think i'd be AS upset if we didn't get stuck with that horrible costume!!
i'd rather Bruce went back to the dang Zero-Year costume than that!!!

i'll be Capullo designed that costume as a parting joke???
like- "HA HA! i've leaving the book! now you're all stuck with drawing this hideous costume!!"
