Given how much of comic-book creation is done by essentially telecommuting, I'm not sure how much it matters where they are.

I'd be interested to hear Karen Berger's reasons for keeping them in NYC though. Was it just personal taste or did she (as I rather strongly suspect) have a good reason for it?

The commenter who mentioned that most of DC's creative interactions are telecommuting captured the overall relevance of this move.

Plus now the execs get to be closer to WB to play their face-time politicking (my brief foray into the world of executives taught me that these guys do most of their scheming offline, hence you need to be hanging around the office to overhear and interdict.

And, on the bright side, if the Taliban or Iran ever gets its nuke, they can rid America of the totality of its artistically bankrupt entertainment in one fell detonation....

Really, guys... you seriously all want to pack in to Los Angeles? Hell, move to Barstow. Property is cheaper, traffic is better, and it's a 30 minute flight to Burbank..... HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE CAN YOU PACK INTO LA BEFORE IT SINKS???? :smt005 :smt005 :smt005

Yup. We've decided to isolate Dan and the Gang away from the important part of the U.S. population. So we're shipping them off to La-La Land! The people there are already a lost cause! :P

It may have seemed like a good idea, but these things are just not cool all thrown together. :P :wink:

Or... if it's the DCU... If you do... have them hire me to do the job. You and me. :-D :wink:


Coincidentally one of the cartoons Didio is accused of fucking up before being brought aboard to DC.
