Hear! Hear! The "Big 2" would almost definitely have lower sales overall(especially Marvel) without the completists, but it would also be easier to pick out the quality books. Unfortunately, it might cripple the industry even more. The only thing that comics have over the rest of the dying print media is collectibility. I've always been a reader who rarely cared about bagging them, but those type of people throw a lot of money into the industry.
