Not as bad as some would believe.

    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.


DC did that in the 90's and it didn't matter. "Superman Returns" came out and they even had a storyline similar in concept but different in execution and it didn't matter. Marvel did that in 2000 with "X-Men" and 2002 with "Spider-Man" and it didn't matter. That's why we had "R.I.P.", "Civil War" and "Back In Black".

It's the hype of the film that translated into sales in 79 and 89. DC and Marvel both did the research.
