DC maddens everyone by cancelling CMX manga line too

As if DC couldn't do enough to anger their onetime fanbase by destroying their mainline universe with superheroes, they've even managed to anger manga readers by terminating the CMX line they'd launched. And with their track record this past decade, I can only say they deserve whatever bad reception they're getting. Interestingly, they didn't even publicize or promote it well to begin with:
We are of the opinion that DC never really gave CMX the love they deserved—they didn’t give it much publicity, and the books were impossible to find in bookstores.
Does this company want to succeed even with satellite brands and lines? Do they want to make money? I guess not. What is the use of launching a line for special brand distribution if they're not going to put any genuine effort into promoting it? This tells just how poor their management is, and that they're wasting a lot of money on something they don't even care to make a convincing success.

Never even heard of these.

"Greed is Good"...

Sorry, flashback to the '80s. But, it does make it clear that it comes down basically to money.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
