This month, I'll be attempting to examine the impact of comic book movies on their comic book counterparts. Does a successful comic book movie translate to more comic book sales? Is that growth sustainable? We'll be looking at these topics and more all month long. First off, we'll be looking at the character Bane and whether you know have a little more respect for the villain after watching The Dark Knight Rises. There's no facts or figures to examine with this one, just take the survey to let us know your opinion.
