Re: Wha-wha... wh wh wh what?!

Movies should do away with the MPAA like comics did away with the comics code.

It was weak and out dated, and comic books have never been better.

Well, comic books are also a dying medium, since the failure to attract children during the 80s and 90s has led to market stagnation, though the two bits of data may not be connected.

...

Just sayin'.

Re: Wha-wha... wh wh wh what?!

Comic book sales were at an all time high in the 90-93 era, with books like X-men shiping over a million copies a month. Now we're looking at about a hundred thousand for the largest monthly shipping number.

They did drop the comics code about 7 years ago, and the growth in comics has been AWESOME! I would never call it a dying medium, because the last few years have been great for comics, but it was scary for a while around the end of the 90's.

I have never liked comics as much as I do right now.

On topic, MPAA is lame! Go Star Wars.

I really don't see the MPAA going away, as it's only been in the last decade that we've had ratings applied to music and video games...

Wow amazing that Paragoomba cannot understand why people have to follow rules


There are alot of these types of rules that are in place and have not ever changed like how you cannot drink alcohol on camera in commercials and stuff.

Re: Wha-wha... wh wh wh what?!

I actually preferred comics in the '80s and early '90s. Darkhawk was one of my favorites, as well as most of the Daredevil issues throughout the '80s. Of course, most of the GI Joe issues in the '80s were the best. I quit reading them around the mid to late '90s because of all of the gimmick covers and loss of traditional comics artwork/paper/cost. Part of the appeal of comics for me was that they were a cheap medium that was fun.

Wrong, wrong and wrong.
The height of comic sale was in the late 40's when single issue 4 sold anywhere from 10 to 40 million each. This included all genre not just supitheroes.
The comics code wasn't dropped by the 2 major players it simply stop existing. In other word it closed up shop. Yes there was an office where all comics with the stamp were shipped to be approved.

Comic sales are not growing they shrinking at at rate of 2% to 4% per year after several years of stagnation. What is growing is the sales of graphic novels or trade paperbacks.

In 2001, Marvel Comics, the world's largest comics publisher, withdrew from the CCA in favor of its own ratings system. As of 2007, DC Comics and Archie Comics are the only major publishers submitting comics for Code approval; DC only submits comics from their Johnny DC and DC Universe superhero lines, but DC Universe titles are sometimes published without Code approval.
Also, everything I've ever read about the modern comic book industry claims that th late 80's early 90's was the biggest comic books ever were.
