NO JUSTICE SOCIETY! I gues this is neat, but ditch the very negative reviewed I Vampire and get us a Lobo series! We need a JSA. FIX IT!
I miss Supergirl’s skirt too.
I can’t help but notice the severally over hyped Grant Morrison is only on one book.
I’ll admit that I’m pretty excited about the “reboot”. In the end it’s a marketing strategy. Some of these titles have just been around FOREVER, when you start hitting numbers like issue 900, that’s intimidating to new readers.
As a comic book reader I fell into it at a perfect moment, Age of Apocalypse. It was a natural jumping on point, the Marvel Universe was in turmoil and everything surrounded it. The DC shake-up has more to do with their lack of ability to overtake Marvel and gain solid ground in new readership than it has to do with any one person’s ideas (despite what a few idiots on Twitter tried to convince me of) and as a whole I applaud DC for taking the bold stance they have.
Rock on DC!
I gotta say that this a good strategy, at this point in DCs history the amount of readers is so low that they can risk losing all of them for a chance to draw in a new crowd. Good plan.
Some of these guys needed a revamp (I’m looking at you Wonder Woman), but I’m also excited they decided to keep characters that are working right the way they are (Green Lantern and Blue Beetle to name a few).
All in all this seems like it should work, and even though a lot of these will end quick, it’s nice to see such a range. Westerns, War Books, Vampire romance, and super heroes of all types, this is a great way to pull in all those people who love the popular TV and Movies with stuff they will be comfortable with as well as creating a more unified universe using Wildstorm, Milestone, and of course the DC stuff we all know. They relaunched during crisis adding the Charlton and Fawcett stuff in a much more reasonable way. It worked then, hope it works now.
Who else has some thoughts on the reboot?
What about the “question”? I read his comics when I was younger. It would really suck if he didn’t get too.
