"He's gorgeous and dead...."

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.

Shrug.

Maybe because the people who like the movies can't read?
