what does the success of the movies have to do with people wanting to read comics again?
Because it's THE SAME DAMN CHARACTERS, so if they're STILL selling wildly in movies, but not in comics, in spite of the fact that they WERE selling wildly in comics, then the problem is not with the economy, but with the comics. In this sense, Quesada's earlier success will actually be his ultimate downfall, because the movies are now more successful than they've EVER been, even in a down economy, and yet, the comics are floundering, in spite of the fact that Quesada himself once achieved impressive sales successes with them. All of the excuses that you're making for why comics can be expected to do poorly now have NOTHING to do with the down economy, and thus, they should have been expected to hinder sales as much BEFORE the economic downturn as AFTER, expect they DIDN'T. So, "kids read less" and all the other excuses obviously didn't stop Quesada from succeeding BEFORE the economic downturn, and the movies haven't stopped succeeding AFTER the economic downturn, so the fault lies with NEITHER your excuses NOR the economic downturn, but with THE COMICS THEMSELVES.
Really, though, you just want him fired.
And you're just an apologist for him, which means there's no point in talking to you.
