I’ve had people ask me why I buy so little from “independent” publishers (ie. anything outside of Marvel and DC) and to be honest, I’ve talked in the past how I think that superheroes are one of the few genres that I think work really well in comics.  There are a few, like sci-fi, that work decently and that’s why I may pick up some sci-fi-related comics from time to time, especially if I like the property, but much of the material that’s being put out by “independent” publishers doesn’t fall into the things I want to read comics about.  It hasn’t always been that way, there were publishers that I think did some pretty oddball things well, such as Crossgen, but those don’t tend to stick around long because there seem to be two kinds of comic book readers, the ones who only care about superheroes and the ones who want “edgy, strange and oddball”.  I’m much more on the superhero side and most indies just don’t do superheroes that well IMO.
