Am I just a cheapskate who can’t afford $10 month?Initially, it looks like Discovery pulled in 8.1 million viewers. Up against football (even a terrible game) and the instant classic "Who shot Biggie and Tupac" on Fox, 8.1 million is decent.Also it's been pre-sold elsewhere. For example, in the UK it's a "NETFLIX ORIGINAL".
I have seen a production cost range anywhere from 6 to 8.5 million per episode (which may be wrong altogether). So if roughly half the initial audience signs up for the streaming service at the $6 rate, you cover the estimated production costs at the lowest end of the scale. Not including advertising costs.
4 mill viewers x $6 a month = 24 mill
6 mill an episode x 4 episodes a month = 24 mill.
One of my favorites. Love the classic floating head covers from Buscema and the bullpen in that era.
My #5 oldest comic (that was bought off the stands for me before the age of 5)...
Avengers #60, on stands 11/12/68
Pencils: John Buscema
Inks: George Klein
(Per GCD, there were alterations on Ringmaster's face and arm by John Romita.)
This is the earliest Avengers I had as a kid. I actually don't remember owning the individual issue, but there's a family picture where the top of it is peeking out from under our toybox. However, I still loved this story, as it appeared in the Avengers Treasury Edition. I bought that Treasury off the stands a few years later.
Not my original copy below -- likely, the original went into the trash before I was old enough to focus on saving my comics.
Definitely a better costumeI'm about 3/4 of the way through. I think they could have replaced Finn Jones with this guyThe colors are right at least.
and the show wouldn't miss a beat.
