Is There A Future For Comic Books?

Anonymous Patron writes "Despite the success of the recent crop of super hero films , it's no secret that the increased interest in those characters hasn't exactly translated into a dramatic upswing in the sales of the comic books that spawned them.

So, IGN.com asks why aren't more moviegoers flocking to their local comic book shops or online to start picking up the monthly adventures of the characters they just spent ten bucks to see on the big screen? One of the reasons can be traced back to the creation of the sell-thru titles back in the early '80s with the release of Dazzler #1 by Marvel Comics in 1981"
