She Geek Critique – Why Marvel Rules the Box Office

Brace yourselves – this week I’m going flat out Marvel vs. DC. Yes, I’m a Marvel chick, but to reiterate what I’ve stated in past posts, I do not hate DC. The majority of the characters and plots in its comics simply don’t do it for me. Marvel just does a better job of satisfying my tastes.

Yes, they are obviously competitors in the same market, but it’s always been a little bit more than that. The products they sell may be the same on a basic level, but there’s always been a “mine is better than yours” attitude between the companies and the fans of their work. And for the fans who, like me, love finding out about behind the scenes details, there’s a great new book on the history of these two comic book giants.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Bam!
