Dc must surely realize now there is a sizeable number of fans who hate the reboot. Why not create 4 original universe books? Another reason to pump out another bat book at any rate

because that's pandering to the fanboys which is what dug dc into the hole they were pre-reboot.

it wasn't the reboot itself that killed them, it's how badly concepts that were perfectly fine were butchered in the new status quo. look that the bronze tiger article zechs did to see how a cool character got turned into a pile of shit.

The only fanboys they've been pandering to are named "Geoff Johns", "Jim Lee", and "Dan DiDio"...

...and that's part of the mountain of proof. Nobody asked them to tamper with Ben Turner, or Amanda Waller, or any of the rest of the characters they've crapped on.

And therein lies DC's problem. The reboot changed so many much-loved characters to such an extent that they were no longer the same ones the fans cared for. At that point, people started to realise that they were better off either just dropping the New 52 books and sticking with their back issues or making their voices heard. DC, sadly, have no intention of listening, and the big sites are far too craven to do anything but capitulate to them.

Just looking around, the most recent DC topics are:

Preview for Batwing
Preview for Action Comics
Discussion on Vertigo
Superman Unchained variant covers
Jason Todd's penis (okay, maybe this one doesn't count)
Bronze Tiger's reboot
the new Justice League issue

would all of these be separate topics @ CBR? Or, if they turn negative, do they go in the megathread (that would just be crazy & unwieldy)?

"Oh, hey, speaking of JLoA's cliffhanger, what do you think of Bronze Tiger?" "Hey, Vertigo fans, check out these Superman variant covers!" - That CAN'T be accurate... can it?

Yes, like all good businesses, DC understands that instead of catering, (pandering), to your hard core consumer base, (fanboys), you really need to piss them off instead. Yeah, alienate your most dedicated customers, that's the ticket!

Buried Allen's response to a CBR poster linking to our article: :lol:

It's an interesting conspiracy theory. Would probably make for a great novel, movie, or comic book. One thing it isn't, though, is real.

I came up with the idea myself between dinner and the evening commute home from work, a day in which I'd already had to round up a number of threads that were, more or less, pursuing the same general topic ("I don't like the New 52"), which has been the purpose of this thread for...almost a year now. I didn't even consult the other two forum moderators, nor Jonah Weiland, let alone anybody from Time Warner/DC Comics. It's actually a flattering idea, really, but not any truer for it.


Action Ace asks:
This reminds me, did they ever identify the jack booted thug that told the Outhouse "reporter" that DC wasn't talking to them? I need to send that thug a medal. :-D
:lol:

And another poster responded to him:

Actually, DC forbidding their writers to have interviews with a site is creepy in general. This whole recent "nondisclosure agreement" business strikes me as just a tad evil.

Bah. I'm just rereading Red Son. About 1000 times better Superman story than we've had in...what, five years? Ten?
