    Sales for Black Bat is low, but we can only hope that Dynamite is making a solid profit off of it despite the low sales. If the book generates cash than it will probably go on, but I guess time will tell....

    Yeah I usually am not a fan of Bendis either. I think he could be good on Hornet though, because his Daredevil run was amazing.

    What do you think of Ron Fortier's campaign to get Dynamite to let him write Hornet?

    I agree, Daredevil represents the best of Bendis' Marvel universe work. The crime genre/street-level characters seem to be his forte. Powers is pretty good, too. Bendis is really good in the characterization and dialogue departments, and he is a master of working "the plot hook" that reels you in and keeps you reading. His major weakness is in resolving his big story arcs - his climaxes are usually weak and unsatisfying, and poorly thought-out logically (with an over-reliance on the cliche of a 'shocking' death of a character). More often than not, his climaxes aren't really even endings per se, more like segues into the next big event or story direction. Maybe that's why his Daredevil is so well regarded... he never ended it himself, but tossed the ball into Brubaker's court!

    I REALLY hope Fortier's campaign succeeds! And there are a lot of good and very experienced writers out there that haven't lost their chops, but are no longer being employed by Marvel and DC. I think those are an untapped resource that Dynamite should take advantage of, given that their page rates are going to be much lower than the 'marquee' names out there. Yeah, the big names are an automatic draw for audience share, but balancing that against the cost factor and availability, and the fact that DE utilizing these older writers will draw audience from the same segment of older readers that fondly remember some of the classic characters DE licenses, I think it's a good bet. To the younger readers who don't recognize these older names, it's no different than using a younger upcoming writer who hasn't made a reputation for himself yet.

    Yeah, regarding Fortier I totally agree. I would add that I believe he wouldn't be doing this if he didn't think he had a really good story to tell, which is most important, in my mind.
