Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Sad to see Slott's run end. He did quite well with the time he had. Part of me thinks he might of not wanted to rewind to Pete being the down on his luck normal joe again.

I think Dan Slott's delivered some of the best Spider-Man in decades, but I also do think he's hung in there a little longer than necessary. Not "Bendis staying on the Avengers after Siege" unnecessary, he's delivered good material and really sold the "Parker Industries" idea without compromising the heart of the character, but it does feel like the time is really nigh for him to move on and I'm glad he's doing so. His first true Peter-as-Spidey versus Norman-as-Goblin saga will be a strong one to go out on, and if his next project can be another Silver Surfer quality book, we'll be the richer for it.

 

Mad as heck about Hawkeye, though, that's literally one of the best things Marvel is publishing right now.

Gwenpool, I think we already knew was coming. America... I can't say I'm upset, since it basically threw out everything I liked about the character, but it's a shame for those that liked it.

 

I dropped Captain Marvel once it became evident that Stohl wasn't getting to write "misanthropic human disaster Carol Danvers" whether she wanted to or not. I'm a little surprised that it's still going if GOTG isn't, honestly.

Gen X with that legacy title only having one or two of the legacy team members until near the end pretty much killed it I think.I would have liked more of the old team reuniting than Quentin Quire and the weird mutant crew. Oh well time for someone else to get stuck with Quire now.

Finally made it up to the local comic shop for the first time in a few months. 

 

The cancelled comics? Weren't even being stocked anyway. 

 

They had four shelves of lenticular covers and four shelves of assorted $1 issues though. 

 

 

Picked up the first four issues of "Punisher: The Platoon". I've heard good things about it, so I decided to splurge and take that risk.

Sounds like Charles Soule and Saladin Ahmed have both referenced upcoming Marvel projects, and I can't help but shake my head and wonder why these weren't ready to announce before they had to put out solicitations for last month. (Which is where everyone learned of the big slate of cancellations)

Seems to me like Cebulski is pretty much making 15,000 physical copies the official line in the sand, with anything that dips below it being in danger of cancellation. 

 

My question though is if he's simply looking at sales figures, or if he's asking questions as to why those sales figures are as they are. I'd hope the latter, as that would help him figure out a better strategy to keep titles from dropping that low in the first place.

Looking at the numbers for November, She-Hulk was over 36,000 so that's an outlier. Also, to drop Generation X and Gwenpool, who were both above 14,000 while a title like Ms. Marvel hangs at 15k just seems petty.

Also, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is at 10k, and that doesn't seem to be going anywhere. (At least it better not.)

But if this is accurate:
Monsters Unleashed
Secret Warriors
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl
Royals
U.S. Avengers (After No Surrender ends)
Black Bolt

Are all sub 15k and would in theory be on the chopping block.

Also Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel are within spitting distance.

EDIT: Okay, She-Hulk was just "Hulk" in October and sold 16,970; swapping over to the old name and numbering scheme must have boosted its numbers or something.

EDIT2: Oh wait, Secret Warriors hasn't been in solicitations for a couple months now and Royals even longer.

My understanding is books like Squirrel Girl and Ms Marvel sell extremely well both digitally and through Scholastic tpbs to kids neither of which tratitional rankings account for, which is why they remain while books above them on these charts are canceled.

Basically they sell great, just to audiences that these types of numbers don't measure.

-ZacWilliam, Monsters Unleashed is the one that interests me. I really like that book (I'm a few issues behind because I haven't seen an issue on stands recently) but even really liking it (its just kinda a fun old fashioned kinda comic) I expected it to have been canceled by now. Maybe the trades of the Monsters Unleashed event did really well through Scholastic and gave it a foothold in that market before the regular book launched...
