    Yes, but you must remember, Scott isn't just an artist. Especially these days, he does double-duty by coaching and instructing writers - such as John Rozum - that he is paired with on how to better craft their stories.

    Greg Land was decent afterwards, but that was when he still was a penciller not a tracer.

    I enjoyed the series as a whole, except for the Bruce Jones run. I thought Wolfman's run was decent as well, if not too thrilling^^
    Wow, I've always been a fan of McDaniel's work.

    -almost as many were looking for Baman: Contagion and Cataclysm, the two events leading into No Man's Land (which DC is rereleasing)

    -a couple of people looking for Knightquest: the Search because of DC leaving leaving it out of the Knightquest TPB

    -Sold a Sword of Azrael TPB for $25 ($10 cover), which wasn't included in the recent release of Knightfall.

    -Bane books were hot in general. I wish I had brought more.

    -I sold only one of my nine Bedlam #1s for $5, an NYCC cover went for $40 to the same person.

    -Sets of Revival- #1-3 went at $25, 1-4 for $30

    -Lots of requests for Annihilation/GotG material, which Marvel isn't keeping in print. I didn't have a lot, moved a GotGv3 for $35.

    -Civil War is evergreen for Marvel. Lots of people looking for both single issues and trades.

    -In a weird one, three people asked for Haney-era Titans, including a teenage girl.

    -New 52 back issue sales were decent, I unfortunately didn't have the stock to fulfill all the requests.
    marvel's pushing annihlation and gotg hard on digital.

    I got the original issues.. but it would be nice to have Nightwing in trade too. I loved Dixon's writing and McDaniel's art, even if many seem to dislike his style.

    It is absurd to me that DC should not keep in print this series of a fan favorite character. It's Dick Grayson for shit's sake. How much does DiDio and company hate Dick and Chuck?!
