INQUIRE ABOUT ADVERTISING ON TROUBLE WITH COMICS

* Jezebel.com asks “What do women want from comics?" I think they just want them not to suck, which the vast majority of Direct Market superhero comic book fans actually seem to prefer.

* DC is finally collecting Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s Flex Mentallo, and in a deluxe hardcover, at that. Wonder what that will do to the market for back issues of this long-out-of-print and well-regarded mini-series. At Comics Worth Reading, Johanna looks at the long and storied history leading up to this week’s announcement. (I first heard the news from Kevin Pasquino, who has some thoughts on the subject at his blog.)

* Marvel has announced new titles for bigwigs Axel Alonso and Joe Quesada.

* Stan Lee has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Presumably Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko will get theirs next month.
