Circulation[edit]

I believe this would be a good candidate for a new section after fictional history. I would have added it myself, but my google-fu is failing me and I can't find the graphic novel in my collection.

We have two data points. 1) I believe in the Born Again arc by Frank Miller there is a conversation between Ben Urich and J. Jonah Jameson about exposing the Kingpin. Jameson utters the line "The Bugle is a gun loaded with X (I believe six but can not confirm) million readers. It is time to aim it at the Kingpin." 2) In Spiderman 3, Jameson's assistant Hoffman lists a number of papers, including the Times and the Post, that outsell the Bugle.

In addition to confirming these data points, the section should compare the numbers to circulations of actual papers at the time to put the Bugle into context, ranking it as the number three, four or whatever selling paper in New York City. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.9.157.248 (talk) 04:47, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Ponderings[edit]

Would it be appropiate to note when the Bugle -fell over-? I've read all the Damage Control issues and apparently the entire building did in a Spider-Man issue. In Damage Control, She-Hulk was shown trying to lift the thing and she almost, but it fell over again.

I hope the coffee pots were empty at the moment, things could have been stained.

Or when villians inetionally went after the staff? I'm not talking about J.J.J. being kidnapped by Venom yet again, but there was the whole seige during Inferno. And during the Onslaught debacle, a Sentinel intentionally went after the building.

Just idle ponderings.

and what about Doc ock AND that poison Lots42 23:59, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Dailybuglelayout.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Dailybuglelayout.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 22:45, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Other Bugle[edit]

In America's Best Comics #30 (April 1949) on page 16 a newspaper appears in the top right of the page and it's called the "Daily Bugle." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.186.204.36 (talk) 02:06, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

I think there was a "Daily Bugle" mentioned in a few Looney Tunes that actually pre-dated Spiderman. WAVY 10 21:22, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Two Things[edit]

What's with the sound effects in the DB picture? Who is shooting what? And didn't Ken Ellis, the reporter, chase Venom down all the way to California? Didn't he witness a lot of symbiote murders? I think a sentene or two more on Ellis would be noteable. Lots42 (talk) 10:28, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Merge proposal discussion[edit]

Since the Front Line is a short lived aspect of Marvel Comics it should be merged either to here or to Ben Urich's page since there is no chance it will get any better. -67.171.250.39 (talk) 17:09, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Merge The Front Line article is a stub with not much there, and since Front Line has now become the Daily Bugle it will probably not expand further. Front Line should have a separate section within the article to explain how it started and how it was different before it took over the Daily Bugle title, but I think it should be in this article. Spidey104 20:53, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
Merge Front Line with Daily Bugle because of what 67.171.250.39 and Spidey already said. Kurt Parker (talk) 18:51, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
I redirected it. Definitely doesn't qualify notability guidelines as a seperate article. A section can be made of it here on this article if you like though. Jhenderson 777 14:51, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Note for later[edit]

Just in case it needs to be added in, one of the Front Line/DB interns is heavily featured in one of the Marvel Apes graphic novels. http://www.amazon.com/dp/0785139915 Lots42 (talk) 11:14, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

what's out of date?[edit]

The out of date tag has been on for about 18 months, but there's no reason given. Could someone more knowledgable review the article and remove it if it's been fixed? Argento Surfer (talk) 16:09, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
