There has been a lot of discussion recently about Marvel's current business model and practices, from page counts to pricing to writing for trades, decompression, cancellation of mid-level titles, number of titles featuring the same characters or teams, etc etc. To help streamline things I am starting this thread so our valued CBR posters and Marvel fans can voice their opinions on the current state of Marvel Comics. Please remember to respect other opinions and follow the rules of this forum. This is not a battle ground nor a place to bash Marvel or it's employees. Perhaps through cordial conversation we can find understanding and answers to some of the questions that have been raised.
