Comic sales are down, from even a year ago.
And yet, comic movies couldn't be any hotter.
I've spent years trying to figure that out. Movies have zero effect on comic sales.
I have no explanation. So I shrug.
The quote in yesterday's Bulletin from a girl standing in line for the Batman movie about Heath Ledger, "He's gorgeous and dead...."
I suppose you could say something similar about Robert Downey, Jr. 'He's gorgeous and almost dead..."
As good an explanation as any.
