And you're right that the opinion of one does not speak for the masses, but, obviously, those masses must be agreeing with some - or all - of my statements or else they'd still be reading The Spider or at least trying it.
But, I understand you are reacting because you love the pulp heroes and write a blog on the Dynamite Pulp Heroes, so you're looking at this through pulp-colored glasses and are biased. I don't have that same bias because while I want these books to succeed, I know the publishing industry and know that bringing in characters that are 60 years old or older to an audience of 20-30-year-olds can't generate enough sales to keep these books going -- unless you put top quality writers and artists on the books. Mark Waid might bring in a bunch of new readers to Green Hornet (a much more marketable character having had a TV show, two previous comic series and a movie), but you'd have to put Frank Miller on The Spider to even get most comic readers to care.
There's just too much out there demanding the comic reader's bucks for this to make it big unless it has something else BIG going for it.
