It's not like we're the only ones who have taken shots at DC and believe me several groups and people are already have. DC's main issues are internal and that's what they should be worried more about rather than criticisms hurled at them on internet forums. This is a company that doesn't know how to market most of their characters outside of Batman, has shitted on people like Alan Moore, Denny O Neil, Chuck Dixon, Mark Waid, Dwayne McDuffie, Karen Berger, Gail Simone, Joe Quesada and many more who have done lots to help the company creatively and artistically, can't properly resolved a decades long lawsuit with the families of the guys who created Superman, hired the guy who ruined 2 cartoon franchises and then brought on the guy who bankrupted Marvel in the 90's and believe that rebooting their whole universe is going to solve their sales problems in the long run. DC, if they had sense, would take time out and find out the root of why there are so many criticisms hurled their way as some of them they bring on themselves. What DC needs to realize is that until they learn how to make better business decisions and act more professionally towards others, their problems are going to persist.



I read that and thought... what would Herald then have to complain about? No more white whale for him...

Also, the lawsuit was due to A- the greed of the families and B- the greed of that one lawyer. They had no case and a handful of left leaning judges ignored the law to try and hand them money.

Otherwise, summed up well... though the list of people shitted on should include the fans and a number of other creator including some still working there.

I'm trying to eat/drink healthier so I've given up Cokle Classic... 2 weeks and 3 days without... but I just cannot get into any of the diet/zero drinks from any company. Tastes like shit.

I'd rather go without than be reminded there's a better alternative just 1 row over at the store. :-(

I drink a lot less soft drinks now, but I still have to have a soft drink if I'm having popcorn at the movies or eating some pizza.

Black Coffee is a great low-calorie drink. (shocking I'd say that, right)

As I read this I'm sipping on a black coffee.

The hardest thing about giving up coke has been when eating popcorn, pizza or a hamburger!

In the two weeks and three days I went from 220 lbs (well within my ideal weight range for my age and height) down to just over 211 lbs. Quite happy about that.
