The single comic book issue and the newspaper are dying.

I think you misunderstood what I was saying.

I was saying DC could have used the hype of The Dark Knight film to tie directly into their main comics with a big event focusing on the classic style of old comics like Batman: The Killing Joke to get fans of the film to buy their comics.

I didn't say just because a DC superhero comic book film sells means without DC lifting a finger the main comics will automatically sell to fans of the film.

Well, this is kind'a veering off into other territory, but comics sell poorer now than they did 30-40 years ago because they aren't as widely available and don't offer as much POW! for one's buck.

Back in the 1960's, one could find Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, and Fantastic Four comics at any newsstand or drug store. Also, the material WAS "family-friendlier" because Mom or Dad would browse through said comics to make certain they were appropriate for little Johnny or Suzie to read.

If comics ever go back to the newsstands, I believe the CONTENT of issues will change. We won't see as much death or torture in comics as we do now. Heh. Comics may adopt the Comics Code Authority stamp again. \:\)
