Bracketology: Dressed for Success -- 6th Round (the Final Four)
Doug: A potentially-lively discussion was brewing in the comments section of last Sunday's Bracektology post, so I'll move it over here for today's topic. Thanks to Inkstained Wretch and Garett for the immediate impetus. You can see a reprint of the exchange below -- let's use these comments as a take-off point for today's interaction; and thanks for playing along!
Doug: Question -- which company had better art in the Bronze Age, Marvel or DC?

The Marvel bias in the final round is pretty striking. I wonder how much of that is based just on Marvel's strength relative to DC in the Bronze Age? I mean, Marvel just sold better back then so does that give it a stronger nostalgia factor? Or did Marvel's sell better in the first place in part because they had better costume designs?o
