These days almost all new comic titles have trouble finding its audience. JB's new Doom Patrol also seems to have also encountered this problem. Though most of us who frequent this board are JB fans, its likely not all of us are currently reading Doom Patrol. Let's try to create a win-win excercise that will help D.P. and any other comics which would benefit from more readers.
Post up the name of your favorite "in need of more readership" book. Doesn't matter which genre or publisher, so long as you think it deserves more people enjoying it. Then one of us Doom Patrol readers will agree to try out an issue of the book*. In return you try an issue of Doom Patrol or the Blood of the Demon.
Let's use this thread to also say how we liked the other's comic, and whether we will continue on with it.
A few more rules to keep things fair (which also apply to BotD)
- Current readers of DP cannot suggest a book to other DP readers.
- Non-DP readers can suggest only one title. If you want other titles to be considered then please ask friends or fans on other boards to participate and suggest those titles here.
- A DP reader cannot accept a suggestion of a title he / she is already reading.
- The "comic swap" is a one-to-one exchange. For example if Jim suggests MutantMan and Frank accepts the suggestion first, then Jane cannot also accept Jim's suggestion later on. A different person will have to propose MutantMan for Jane to accept.
* "Try out" and "reading" means buying it from a retailer. Not from the secondary market, reading it at the shop, or downloading a bootleg !
** There has been a troll posing as "Joe Zhang" on other forums, trying to disrupt trading. Please note that Byrne Robotics the only board I post on as Joe Zhang.
