Wait wait, I can't tell which is supposed to be the poor persecuted minority anymore, is it the people who like DC or the people who want the old DC back?

I wonder how deep the roots are on new dc readers? Cause I'm a former dc guy who pretty much only reads marvel and Star Wars now. I never thought that would happen.
As for the product, dc has some good creators, and some stuff works, but a lot of it? Pretty much everything wild storm, for starters, bleech. Ravengers? Death stroke? Plus the art. I hate image 90s art.

Yes. It's sad that rumors of behind-the-scenes drama is more interesting than most of the current story lines.

I have found myself reading more DC since the reboot, mainly because I didn't have an attachment before and so was able to objectively take advantage of the jumping on point. Love All Star Western, Demon Knights, Justice League Dark, most of the Bat Books, Superman, Superboy, Teen Titans, Wonder Woman. I even enjoy Justice League, but only because it's so bad its good. Still can't get into any Green Lantern stuff, just never liked the character. But for the most part, I'd say DC is doing better for me personally now than ever before, despite any jokes I might make in front page articles about them.

What issue did he leave? I either didn't catch up to that yet (I'm behind by a few months) or I didn't notice.

Cornell's last issue was last month. I don't think 16 has come out (or it's in my stash for this week waiting for when I leave work)

Books I had subbed to since nu52:
Justice League Dark (dropped around issue 6, picked up again when Lemire was put on it)
DC Presents (I love the one and done format. Dropped it after the Kate Savage Arc.)
Demon Knights (AMAZING CAST, crap storytelling. Think I dropped after 6 issues of them sitting in the same town.)
Dial H (One and done heroes...nice)
Resurrection Man (slow. dropped at 6)
Animal Man (trade-waited this one)
Earth 2 (dropped after I realized it wasn't going to be JSA)

Trades I am looking forward to:
Phantom Stranger

The second half of Resurrection Man I thought was better than the first half.
Earth 2 while it's not JSA is still fantastic. The last issue with Steppenwolf. Whoa! :shock:

Actually what's really sad is how much you people talk about DC (and Marvel) nowadays. Now that I think about it.

I am trying to be less negative these days. I will say that for me, it's as simple as the fact that I am starting to move on. When the DCnU started, it was a hard transition to me because I liked so many of DC's characters. Now, I barely recognize most of those characters so I had to ask myself one simple question that I applied to each character and book that I was reading: If DC got what they wanted and this was a completely new universe with completely new characters without 50+ years of history, would I want to read these books? The answer, in most cases has been a pretty overwhelming no.

GL was the last DC book I was regularly interested. I read it in trades. Then that whole Blackest Knight thing happened and I was just like "Maaaaaan I waited all this time for this garbage?" and I never read a DC book ever again.

Except the Kirby Omnibuses. In fact, those are the only things DC is putting out that are worth a damn.


I didn't think ANYBODY loved Gucci Mane. Why does he always sound 80x more compelling on other people's tracks than his own?

Because only there can you contain his icy cold raps.
