I'll tell you what turns me off, because movies and other tie-ins can in fact generate interest and motivate me to head to the comic store to check out the books. Then I get there and find a dozen different titles varying in number range from #1 to #600+, and I have no idea which one to buy. More often than not, I'll buy none, or fall back on something a little easier to grasp (Walking Dead, Fables, etc)

The market is absolutely over-saturated. If they want to generate interest, maybe they shouldn't relaunch 52 new titles at once. It's mind boggling. How can you expect a comic to sell well, on its own, when there are 51 other titles (from one company alone) vying for attention?

Marvel and DC release more and more spin-offs and mini-series in the hopes of generating more revenue, but all they're really doing is turning people like me off to the whole thing.

I wish her death, and every other hero death, remains permanent.

I still think DC is missing the problem with comics these days. Here is the perfect opportunity to start over and do it right, but even now, if I want to follow Batman, I have to buy 7 books a month!

Marvel did the same thing with their Ultimate lines, I believe, but those only worked when they were simple. Just one Spider-Man title, one X-Men title, until the inevitable crossovers...

I've only read a smattering of Batman books, and I want to read more. I always feel the best way to read any series is in order of release, and I wonder if it's at all feasible to do with a character like Batman. There's no way I'm starting with his very very beginning, but maybe somewhere after like... Crisis on Infinite Earths, or something, where the story resets.  
 
The only lists of trades I can find list them in order of storyline, which obviously isn't always chronological. Any idea where I can find such a list, or where I can start?

I can't help but to do this: fantastic! Yes, now I did the Best Buy quest. But really, quests on WM are fantastic.

It does seem a bit like Teen Titans Try 2.
