No, it's like The Dark Knight Rises making more money at the box office than, say, How to Survive a Plague and it's something that happens all the time. Critical acclaim and popular appeal aren't the same thing. Why does other people enjoying a comic book you don't make you angry?When you look at a story like OMD/BND and then you see the company that put it out being rewarded with high sales you get angry. It's like Porky's winning the academy award for best picture over Casablanca.
I don't get that feeling whatsoever. Wonder why?You get the feeling that marvel is saying "Look, we did something horrible and we won anyway! Now we can laugh at all of the people who don't like us."
It's all about coinfidence and not landing in the quiet zones where both parties stop talking. That's why anytime I go into something like that I have a recent funny story in my back pocket. It's like American Express, you never leave without it! (is that American Express? I'm going to go now...)
