"He said event organizers had always treated him well, but “attendees these days are, in general, not our customers or they are not looking for books.” Many of his former customers can’t get tickets — known as badges (because Comic-Con is a nonprofit) — or have chosen to stop coming, he said."
"Much like Wonder Woman, I understand the symbolic reason it is important for Black Widow to have her own stand-alone film. She’s been one of the earliest members of the team and was the token chick, until Age of Ultron, for the Avengers team proper, as well as an interesting character in her own right. At the time, both DC and Marvel were being really crap when it came to bringing female superheroes to film. Then everything changed when Wonder Woman lassoed the hell out of the box office and became the only redeeming thing about the DCEU."

"The bidding for the first Batman comic is up to almost $200,000. But the first appearance of the Man of Steel has exceeded $500,000 already and is expected to reach $650,000 to $750,000, Eric Bradley, director of public relations for Heritage Auctions, told ABC News. "We expect this to be one of the largest comic book auctions ever held," he said, adding the total weekend could reach upwards of $9 million to $10 million. Bradley said auctions of vintage comics and original art have exploded in recent years because of Marvel Cinematic Universe films and those by Warner Bros. that include stars from the DC Comics universe."
