Amoebas schooled Herald. Herald didn't even answer some of the questions. He went off on ridiculous tangents.

The funny thing is, I agree with Herald's points on some of the answers, just not the reasoning.

Well done, Amoebas.

Must have been reading a different post than I did. And I'm sure there's a trope for that... :wink:

Herald: I have also been here. I also held my torch and pitchfork high -- and what did it get ME? Noticed by Dan DiDio himself! I don't see any of the DCnU's happy fans getting put in a DiDio comic as a villain, a hero, or anything else, without being close pals with someone in the industry or winning some sort of contest.


I applaud Herald for his openness and good nature at being portrayed as a potentially stereotypical flaming super-villain :lol:

I think these guys both did a good job with this. It was fun to read while editing.

This was like watching Bill Maher and Rush Limbaugh go at it. Two opposing sides taking extreme views where the truth sometimes lands in the middle or sometimes one way or the other enough to give their opinions hope.

That being said I'd probably lean more toward some of Heralds less inflammatory responses when viewing the long term success of this reboot.

PS And I did not know Herald was in a comic. :lol:

I was too (but it was because they liked me :-D )

That's me they're talking about in the bottom left.

Herald holding up that Harold Winer appearance as a badge of honor is pretty silly. It may have lacked some class on the part of DC, but it didn't change anything either. It just got him known as the most annoyingly anal comic geek of all time.

Great read indeed, especially Herald's cameo! That was priceless and really indicative of DC's insecurity. Herald wins, hands down. I can't wrap my head around the DC mindset at all, or it's new fanbase. After reading this debate, I'd chalk up DC's "success" to marketing a trendy product that appeals to a hipster fan base who would rather be a part of a social niche than enjoying comics for what they are.

It reminds me of the fans in the 90's who collected and never read any of their multiple foil embossed issues. :smt011

Oh please. Didio's response was fucking brilliant and done in a way that Herald has no option but to play along with :lol:
Tell me that if someone spent years relentlessly attacking you, insulting your intelligence and job ethics, and demanding your head on a stick that you wouldn't do something in response.
Hell, look at the Maury Povich-quality poster-vs-poster bitch-fests that add hours of entertainment to this site on a regular basis :lol:

Let's not rewrite history. Herald doesn't play along with it. He is butthurt by it. I think he called it "classless."

Wait.....the Harold Winer character was later killed off after his debut? Issue? :lol:

edit: nvm he actually made a fair few more appearances than I expected:

Sue Dibney
He referred to draining the female Doctor Light as "rape"
In the Spectre Final Crisis story he was ready to rape a gang of teen girls dressed up like the Teen Titans

I think after Identity Crisis he became the western equivalent of Rapeman.
