Making Charts and Love Legitimate: Batwoman

21 Apr

The things I do to figure out sources of information for projects… yeah, I just mapped out all of Detective Comics Sales Data (focusing on the issues with Batwoman) for the last year +.  Hope you enjoy the nice comparison.  There are definitely some interesting things at work… like the sudden drop of viewers once Jock took over from J.H. Williams III.

Yay for figuring out how to write about comic books in Writing and Culture classes!

Now, it’s time to go and find some frames from her first story arc and her time in 52.  Joy oh Joy!
