I bought a Vertigo GN the other day (Joe the Barbarian). I read Wonder Woman in trade or at least I'd like to. I also buy up any Jack Kirby stuff they release.
Exactly, this is what makes us different from DC's attitude. Batman is still one of my fav books and I'll keep reading it as long as Snyder makes it awesome. If DC did something great tomorrow, I'd say how cool it was. If they offered us an interview with someone, we'd do it. We aren't going to cover something good just so we get something in return, but we also aren't going to cover something bad just because they wanna dick around.
Most of all, we don't need to do anything because, chances are, the same genius that made this dumb call will keep screwing up other stuff until they get fired anyway.
That's fine. The way I see it, they are still a company that puts out a product and their practices will warrant how I consume the product. I don't see this blacklisting as fair, so why should I continue to buy their product? Is not a necessity and I have plenty of alternatives to choose from.
It's like Sprite. I love it, but the company that makes it is a shitlord. Therefore I don't buy it.
Granted, DC and the OH isn't the unethical mess that is coca-cola, but still, they don't want to hear negative opinions from consumers so why should I consume?
