    I used to be a staunch DC supported until September 2011 and the New 52. The only thing I purchase from them now are certain Showcase Presents anthologies. As far as comic book movies...Marvel's approach has beat DC hands down!

      I won't support their treatment of long term readers (46 years for me) by spending my money on something I don't like. The Showcase Presents anthologies are black and white reprints of Silver and Bronze Age stories.

      I agree. They seek an infinite commercial pursuit and forget about a good nice ending to old time heroes. Heores should grow with you but also die as their generation moves on.

    I don 't collect Marvel or DC anymore. Here in Australia the comic book let alone the graphic novel are priced as precious items. What's more, they don't deliver in terms of action or excitement. They have all become very commercialized and very standardized.

    I grew up a Marvel fan back in the 1960s and I was a Marvel fan up until the 1990s. There was an issue of Daredevil. Throughout the comic book he was on this roof chatting with the Black Widow. That was it. Nothing else happened. After that issue I decided to call it a day for Marvel. 

    Nowadays I prefer Frew Phantom comics. I especially like the material that has its origins in Europe. The artwork is good and the story doesn't have to meet a strict standard. The hero doesn't always have to win or even survive (a son will take over the fight). Historic events are touched upon. Environmental issues are addressed. Phantom...Ghost Who Walks...Man who cannot die...guardian of the Eastern Dark.

      Some years ago, DC and Marvel shifted to a new business model of single story arcs that would be reprinted in trade paperback form. They use decompressed storytelling so that very little action happens any single issue. Boring!!!

      Agreed Jayfort. Do you get the Australian Frew comic books of The Phantom, David?

      I am surprised. It's not a bad buy nowadays.

    Used to like them pretty much the same with maybe a slight edge to Marvel. Since the New 52 I like Marvel much better. I'm still getting the Green Lantern books which seem to have been largely unaffected by the changes but other than that... Make Mine Marvel.

      Seems the New 52 lost its adult public.

    I use to love reading comic books. I stopped when I started college, except for the occasional one that might be lying in the barber shop or whatever.

    I was always a DC reader. Superman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, and all the others were favorites. I did not read Marvel because, first they did not get the television exposure that Superman and later Batman got, so I knew little about them and DC had the Doom Patrol and a few others that sort of filled in for the Marvel super heroes.

    I will say that the Marvel characters have presented very entertaining movies. The Superman movies have all disappointed me as well as the Batman movies, witch the exception of the Christian Bale series that stayed closer in line with the original story line.

    So, the short answer is DC.

      Batman has a nice collection of short films from different artists that I enjoyed very much.

    I like Marvel more, better characters in my opinion.
