Hell, off the top of my head, and just on the limited stuff I read...
is hack slash a supe comic? Vlad isnt so human any more.
I am loving the tower chronicles from Legendary
The Last of the greats (I know its a mini)
Luther Strode seems to be doing well
Superbia got picked up for an ongoing
Danger club seems to be picking up steam
Out of all those books you listed, I think THE BOYS is the only one I'd consider a huge success in today's market. SAVAGE DRAGON is a fantastic book and I have nothing but respect and admiration for Erik, but the book's current numbers aren't very strong.
And don't get me wrong -- there are some great books on that list, and I commend anyone willing to swim against the tide by trying to do an independent super-hero book in today's climate.
It's just not something I, personally, have a huge interest in doing at the moment. I still might -- there's one project kicking around my head that I might pull the trigger on -- but as I said, I'm having more fun playing around in other genres that I haven't spent nearly as much time in.
Maybe I am misunderstanding, or ignorant of my perception of Vince... but did you just say you didnt consider Robert Kirkman's invincible a huge success in today's market? I didnt know that there was a larger success outside of The Walking Dead than invincible. Most Kirkfans around this board claim to be bigger fans of invincible than walking dead. I thought Hack Slash and TMNT were also doing well in today's market?
I hear you that doing an independent sup comic outside of Vince is pretty impossible, though doable as it has been done and strode seems to be doing wellish... and I wasnt suggesting you do that more; I am just saying success outside of the big two does exist.
Now I am going to do what I can to difuse the situation, but I am pretty sure Capuga's head is going to explode if he reads the above.
(just kidding cap)
