    Pretty much. DC is a publisher that sometimes prints comic books I want to read. That's pretty much what I like about them.

DC keeps me for now on their $2.99 books but going to $3.99 will lead me to drop them too as I did recently with Batman and Detective comics (extra content doesn't mean much if you couldn't care less about the extra content).

    So make mine DC until they go $3.99 line wide and then make mine actual print novels. Like I said, if I can end a 30 year run on a book then ending a less than ten year run (my current Green Lantern run) is nothing.
    Too bad the 2.99 price point is basically a sham. They are totally stiffing you on page-to-cost ratio at 2.99 for 20 pages of story. I'd much rather get more story pages for 3.99 and get a better value for my dollar.

    The characters. I just have a stronger affinity for them than I do Marvel's. Aside from Spidey, I've never felt the tug of any of their characters the way I do DC's.

    I agree. This whole "I'm dropping their titles because its $3.99" is quite frankly stupid and pretty soon with the way the industry and the economy is going I won't be surprised if DC ups the prices to $3.99 and I'll still probably buy some of their titles. Less probably but not enough for me to go all crusader against a brand which is one of the reasons why I love indies. They might cost more than 2.99 but they offer better quality or better quantity or sometimes both

    Why? Because I think the writing, artwork and characters are all generally better than the competition.

    Apart from that, no reason.

    It had superheroes that weren't like Marvel's and the universe seemed more grand. This has all changed now of course, but I still like Aquaman. Can't find him anywhere else.

    (Wow, am I really saying that the best thing about the DCU is Aquaman? Yikes. lol)
    Marvel : Moon Knight, Savage Hulk (6/25), Original Sin (5/7)

    DC : Aquaman, Aquaman & the Others

    I like DC's iconics more than I like Marvel's. Why Marvel or DC? Because superheroes.

    Lots of things.

    I grew up watching the Superfriends in the 80's, so there is that whole childhood happy memory thing going on.

    I didnt start reading comics until the early 90's, and I really liked what DC had going on in a lot of their books back then. Marvel on the other hand, seemed to be nothing more than issue long slugfests, half the time against other heroes. The heroes didnt seem overly heroic by comparison because of this, and didnt really inspire me or trigger my imagination. Picking up a DC comic, I could see Superman travel through space, or see Flash run through time. Marvel on the other hand, just had a bunch of highly flawed heroes fighting a lot of villains.

    The scope is bigger, the characters are bigger than life, and most of the time I prefer the writing. Not always, and I have certainly gone through periods where I dont read much DC at all, if any. But for the most part, I think DC has more creative and imaginative story lines, with characters who feel like they fit giant cosmic Crisis stuff better than say, Wolverine or Spider-Man.
