The Outhouse Congratulates DC Comics on Going 1 Month Without Doing Something Stupid

...that we know about.



Source: HDCDSST

Shocked fans around the world watched the Has DC Done Something Stupid Today counter this weekend as the reliable indicator of whether or not DC Comics has done something stupid passed an historic milestone, marking 30 days since the company last did something stupid. Of course, the month saw some close calls, as the company announced plans to move from New York City to Burbank, CA and revealed a new Red Lantern, but both stories, while holding potential for future stupidity, fall in the "too early to tell" category, and, in the interest of fairness, despite their track record, The Outhouse must give DC the benefit of the doubt on these things until they are concretely proven to be stupid. In fact, in some ways, the move to Burbank might even have some positive consequences.

The previous record for DC's time without stupidity was sixteen days, so the new milestone is truly a momentous achievement, and either indicates that the company is turning over a new leaf, or is simply holding all of its stupidity in reserve to be unleashed in a massive dumbpocalypse in the coming weeks.

Whatever the case, The Outhouse would like to congratulate Diane Nelson, Dan Didio, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, Bob Harras, and their entire editorial staff on not pissing off valuable creators with last minute editorial decisions that drive them off books, offending large swaths of people on an international scale with a Harley Quinn suicide contest, or otherwise mistreating employees, misusing characters, and committing boneheaded publicity snafus that damage the company's brand value for an incredible 31 days. Or, at least, for doing those things quietly so that no one is aware of them yet. It's a big step, and we're proud of them, even if we haven't been able to benefit from the increased website traffic that DC's unbelievable stupidity often brings us.

So, nice job DC. Now hurry up and do something stupid so we can make fun of you again.

Your Pal,
Jude Terror

I think they'll make it to the New Year before reaching stupidity critical mass this time. They'll be working hard at keeping it in check given the previous splurge, but the boozy Christmas parties and that post new-year's day hangover will make them drop their guard and it'll all spill out.

What if we make this into a game?

Everybody chooses a date and whoever comes closest wins?

(If we do that, I think they'll do something stupid by Thanksgiving/Black Friday)

They've gone a month without doing anything conclusively stupid. The pressure is building...

Never did I think that someone/thing NOT doing something stupid could feel like such a double-edged sword.

I'm guessing Jude has never read any recent "Supergirl" issues. That girl has anger issues. Becoming a Red Lantern makes perfect sense :lol:

Instead of day 52, can I call dibs on day 42?

People have been calling for it to reset the counter like crazy. We generally won't for something subjective like a storyline, unless it is racist or homophobic or sexist or something like that, and certainly not before the book has even come out. Despite their unprecedented stupidity, even DC comics is innocent until proven guilty.

So far Williams and Gaiman are silent about it, so it could be their issue and not an editorial/management thing.

Jeff Hayes I just think that if they're going to spend a year hyping something, then promote the heck out of the beginning, they might want to release it on time. Otherwise they risk losing anyone who wasn't already waiting for the collection.
