DC Comics Addresses JLA #4 Controversy [SPOILERS]

In a recent blog post, DC Comics has responded to the criticism of the the events in Justice League of America #4.



Source: DC Blog

Earlier this morning, we reported on DC's latest stupidity, "fridging" Catwoman by brutally murdering her in order to "get Batman's attention." DC has heard the outrage of the internet, and they have shown tact and maturity by responding with an article on their blog titled "3 Days to Save Big!"

"This is an offer that's simply too good to pass up," the article tells us, showing that DC really does pay attention to fans and listen to their complaints. "From now until June 1, you can get up to 30% off on great iphone cases and other great stuff."

DC also shows that they're not afraid to ask tough questions, nor are they going to let the inconsequential rules of punctuation prevent them from answering: "Got a graduate you need a gift for?.... then look no further... click HERE to save!!!"

True to their word, DC links to their online store, where concerned fans can purchase iPhone cases for the low, low price of $24.47.

For all the flack that DC gets, we feel it's important to recognize it when the company does something right. And if reducing the price of a cheaply manufactured plastic iPhone case from thirty-five dollars to twenty-five dollars isn't doing something right, we don't know what is.

Bravo, DC. Well played.

But then you'd be acknowledging that DC is like WWE which isn't the case. They're really WCW which means if they do buy Jude they'll probably promote him just for the first month than have him utterly squashed by Dan Didio who'll no sell every move Jude gives him. Then like always gives him the freaking boot and leg drop.

Making us once more hate Didio again even more.

But wouldn't Bob Harras also be entitled to some of the fan hate as well? Why should Didio get all the credit?

So in a few weeks when it's revealed that the real Catwoman didn't die the Outhouse will take the responsible action and be adding 6 days to the Front Page counter to negate the erroneous reset from yesterday ? :P

Are you suggesting that DC will last three weeks before doing something stupid again? If that happens, I will eat my hat. :P

Deal.
Now just to clarify, is this something legitimately stupid or another Outhouse-embellished-just-to-reset-the-counter-at-least-once-a-week stupid ? :P

IvCNuB4's definition of corporate stupidity is limited to the following:

1) Murder, but not if the victim is a) an employee of DC, b) an employee of Marvel, c) their spouse or d) someone else's spouse
2) Agreeing to share rights of a character with creators, thus jeopardizing DC's ability to exploit the same properties over and over.
3) Cancelling one of the following books: Justice League, Justice League of America, Batman
4) Agreeing to rescind the Outhouse's blacklisted status, as DC is too good, clean and wholesome to deal with the likes of us
5) Killing one of their white, male characters.

Do you accept these terms, Jude?

You do realize that I've written two about to go with three positive DC articles. And I'm the one who literally was cornered and hung out to dry.

....



I think I'm a masochist. That or an abused lover who looks past the abuse and only remembers the good times DC had hoping they'd change and bring about those good events again.

... I'm gonna get another shiner from DC now aren't I?
