In a way, though, that's just the reality of corporate advertising - if I allowed that to annoy me overmuch I would probably end up dropping every DC and Marvel book I currently pull. Both books' synopses and creative teams are interesting enough for me to want to give them a punt. It's nice that DC are trying something different for once, also.
Sure that's a reality, and I don't trust the messenger in this case. It's telling, though, that you say it's a reality of corporate advertising
here. You see, to me, that's very close to the same point I was just making.
(But in my case, I've long since dropped all DC & Marvel books and have no interest in the creative teams. If I were going to buy anything from DC, I'd try Matt Kindt's and Ales Kot's books, mainly to see if either one can keep any remnant of their own unique styles or just both get ground beneath the wheel.)
I would argue, though, that DC has
been trying many different things, to see what sticks. Most just haven't worked.
