DC Not Sure They Bought a Pig In The Poke With Bendis

According to Bleeding Cool word got out that DC was having second thoughts about the signing of Brian Michael Bendis. Sales on the Superman books are strong but not much higher than the numbers the Dan Jurgens/Peter Tomasi/Patrick Gleason books were. Considering the size of the contract and the hype around Bendis they arenít selling as well as the Tom King Batman book. His creator owned titles are the only creator-owned titles published by DC so the company gets the books out but have no ancillary rights so if they are optioned for TV or movies DC gets nothing. So to some at DC Bendis is seen as someone hired by Diane Nelson, the former President of DC, and nothing more. He was getting his own imprint but rumor has it that the imprint is on hold for now.
