    I mean, there’s always a chance but the odds are so astronomically small that it’s basically zero.

    The stuff they put out is just bad. The art isn’t good enough nor does it come out fast enough and it cost money vs manga/manhua/manwha, which normally has better art, more attractive characters, etc.

      Is there any way for DC to get the 18-45 male demographic back or is the company screwed?

      unironically western comics are fricking doomed.
      >reject your original customer base in favor of general market appeal
      >alienate your customers by moving away from your company origins
      >fail to adapt to the industry.

      not even memeing here, but the whole Marvel Vs DC and western comic infighting has somehow caused them either ignore asia or underestimate them to the point where they have little to neglible foreign appeal, and now even in their own home turf they are losing ground.

      im no analyst but it could be a variety of things from the constant rehashing of characters, stupid story structure, and incompetent leadership. This isnt even about them inserting agendas into their stories, but rather the general comic continuum is garbage.

      there's hope out there though, take for example East of West, Invincible, The Boys, etc. it seems the go to format now is grimdark graphic novels. thats something to be said because the cartoony all ages appeal of mangas and shit from japan and now korea points to that it SHOULD be possible to have a popular story that isn't about killing all the heroes or someshit.

      its a damn shame and ill out myself here as a massive basement dwelling loser, but i genuinely weep for the future of comics. every now and then theres some good issues but the general trajectory is trending down. im not talking about "social justice", "diversity", "lgbt agenda" nothing like that. just general good old fashion writing.

      whoever is allowing the garbage getting pushed through is a saboteur destroying the industry from within. it's not even about "capeshits" its about that they can't seem to do ANYTHING ELSE. they are so creatively bankrupt they have nothing to offer. and its a shame they are sitting on a goldmine of artists, content and storytellers.

      there should be no reason why western comics can't produce good content at the level or better than the top mangas. no excuses at all. other than they give zero fricks.

        The real culprit is companies like BlackRock. I don’t think it’s a DEI thing as much as a “we don’t need new comics, let’s cut that expense and just use the properties in movies and TV” thing. If they own everything then they don’t really need a DC Comics, just the IPs. So, right now they’re letting in anyone who will work for peanuts and not giving them much oversight, knowing it’ll get below a threshold and then they pull the plug. By doing it this way instead of closing the division down they can give the impression that they tried and it failed rather than them firing everybody and a campaign being launched against them. The slow path will be most beneficial for them in the long-run.

          >. If they own everything then they don’t really need a DC Comics, just the IPs.
          agreed and they really are doing their best to absolutely fricking trash each and every single IP. unironically the solution IS new comics, new stories, new art. and to do it with purpose, push it with purpose. because that seems to be happening, those motherfrickers release a one shot, or 1-5 issues, and call it a lifetime. no advertising, no run up, no continuation. oh and btw that new story? its actually just a reskinned batman, or a DEI ironman. its fricking moronic.
          I'll say it again, theres too many talented writers and artists out there for them to be spewing this much garbage. it doesnt all have to be heroes and capeshit, japan and korea has shown us you can literally make a succesful manga about god damn sports, frick man.
          I just want to know how the frick they make the decisions they do, how can they fail so extravagantly and still keep a job.

          because as much as i agree with you that they just want to cut costs and get rid of everybody while maintaining IPs, i also want to say that money is the driving factor, and if they knew or understood they could make a lot of money by pushing new content they would.
          they just don't because from their understanding its not worth the investment. which is crazy because we get new content out of asia all the fricking time and it explodes. every year theres 4 or 5 hit anime/mangas/light novels that comes out of the blue being lead by some random japanese drug addict or a korean homosexual.....why can't we do it?

        I don't even care about writing really, since I think lots of comics, for basically their whole existence, have been written by a bunch of hacks. My problem is the look, I can't stand the look of the modern big two coloring process, its all so flat and ugly and it literally all the looks the same, you can have the most beautiful, unique pencils, and then it just turns into this ugly samey blob with the color.

      Right, sure, and if it's a failed business venture because feminists don't buy comics, then that's a failure of the business practices of the comics industry, and not anything that feminists are doing. The comics would be just as bad if history had gone slightly differently and the comics were pandering to far-right tradcaths or something. It'd still be shit even if Iron Man was preachy about the need for a white ethnostate instead of Captain Marvel preaching about the need for more girls in STEM.
      >outing yourself as a troony
      Saying it more isn't going to make it true, I was pointing out an overused trope that I see used a lot with absolutely no basis, and you're literally just doing the exact thing I was describing. We all gotta quit it with that because if you make everybody a troony, nobody is. How are we supposed to take them as a serious threat if we keep pretending everyone is a secret troony? That's basically just saying you've already lost.

          But you're literally just making my argument that the issue is the business practices of the comic book industry, not the fault of the target of their failed practices. If they were trying that hard to court, say, first-generation asian-american immigrants as they were trying to court white feminists, the stories would be just as preachy and fake. The issue is bad writing and transparently exploitative business practices, regardless of what group they're targeting, these same business practices made all the bloodpouch slop of the 90's, it's just that then they were trying to appeal to edgy teens, and it happened to be at a time where that was more profitable because of an economic upturn. The stories and the characters are bad because of the people making the stories, not the audience those people are trying to court.

                Because they genuinely feel that way. You don’t have a genuine opinion , you’re just arguing to argue. You’re trolling, in other words. Just because you disagree with some people doesn’t mean you should troll and derail an entire thread .

                But you're literally just making my argument that the issue is the business practices of the comic book industry, not the fault of the target of their failed practices. If they were trying that hard to court, say, first-generation asian-american immigrants as they were trying to court white feminists, the stories would be just as preachy and fake. The issue is bad writing and transparently exploitative business practices, regardless of what group they're targeting, these same business practices made all the bloodpouch slop of the 90's, it's just that then they were trying to appeal to edgy teens, and it happened to be at a time where that was more profitable because of an economic upturn. The stories and the characters are bad because of the people making the stories, not the audience those people are trying to court.

                Right, sure, and if it's a failed business venture because feminists don't buy comics, then that's a failure of the business practices of the comics industry, and not anything that feminists are doing. The comics would be just as bad if history had gone slightly differently and the comics were pandering to far-right tradcaths or something. It'd still be shit even if Iron Man was preachy about the need for a white ethnostate instead of Captain Marvel preaching about the need for more girls in STEM.
                >outing yourself as a troony
                Saying it more isn't going to make it true, I was pointing out an overused trope that I see used a lot with absolutely no basis, and you're literally just doing the exact thing I was describing. We all gotta quit it with that because if you make everybody a troony, nobody is. How are we supposed to take them as a serious threat if we keep pretending everyone is a secret troony? That's basically just saying you've already lost.

                Manga is Cinemaphile, this is comics, Cinemaphile. Y9u don't get what you described in comics, because comics are a revolving door of chucklefricks contracted to write one half of a quarter's books and then the next chucklefrick comes in and undoes it or editorial revamps everything because the EIC's dog died of ligma last week so Soupersandwich Man's dog dying of ligma is retconned now.

                Pretending to be moronic does not equal being correct, anon. I have informed you of what you want to read if you want stories by a single author. Unfortunately, your repeated childish cries for the western industry to work that way, will not make it work that way. You could also potentially try some Euro comics.

                But US comics simply do not work the way you want. They utilize a revolving door system, very few US comics are a single creator writing the whole way through. But you already know this.

                Yeah, exactly! That's all I want too, but then someone writes a good story that happens to star an asian woman and every conservative I take the time to listen to says it's "woke garbage" because underneath that claim is the additional asterisk that it has to be starring straight white people

                >That's all I want too, but then someone writes a good story that happens to star an asian woman

    Sure.

    1. Lower the price for a floppy from $5 to $1 (merchandise should be the focus of profit).
    2. Digital subscription should be $2/month, and include every comic.
    3. Hire better writers, hire better artists, and give them courses that teaches them how to draw and write comics.
    4. Know the audience and drop the political pandering.
    5. Introduce a (real) canon and timeline.
    6. Adapt into high quality cartoons.
    7. Expand the industry as a multi-media franchise with high quality moves and videogames.

    The actual answer is that neither big two company can survive as long as it keeps its current parent company. WB and Disney shareholders couldn't care less about comics and comic publishing. They're not going to demand changes that make the publishers more profitable, because they're too focused on movies and merchandise and theme parks and shit. As things are now, the publishers will just keep being subsidized by their parents until losses get so bad that they either get shuddered or sold altogether. We can only hope it's the latter and that they're sold to a private individual or a dedicated publisher

    the only reason they had that demo in the first place is because they aged their titles out of the 8-18 demo deliberately for decades, and now they're stuck with the 45-70 demo instead because time is a straight line

    I think the company is screwed. I'll give my own worthless anecdotal take. I know a few dudes who used to be into comics who don't follow them at all anymore and zero ladies who were ever into comics. On the flipside I know plenty of guys and girls who are into anime/manga. I also live in the commiefornia central valley and am in my mid 20's and most people I know are also at that age range. You'd think in a place like california there'd be more ideologues but there's not. So my demographic isn't reading comics, kids are reading manga and sure as he'll aren't going to get into comics with the way they are now (activist writers inserting identity politics into shit) so I honestly think the comic book medium is fricked.
