White man
Black man
Straight man
Gay man

Green Lantern has a life
This time, no wife
Say! What a Hoot
Look, another reboot

Yes. Some last a while. And some do not.
Some are good. Some stink and rot.


Yea, that didn't work, but you get the point; DC is rebooting ...again.

Sorry, DC is "revamping"...again, this time under the banner of 'DC You.' From well-known public relations firm, Newsarama:

In June, DC Comics are launching dozens of new titles and revamping many of its key series -- and now it's announced a new advertising compaign [spelling mistake in original] to help spread the word. "DC You" is described as a campaign that "shines the spotlight" on the new storylines, and "reinforces the company's commitment to creating a diverse offering of titles – something for everyone."

Wasn't that one of the points to the New 52?

"With the New DC Universe, there's a story for every kind of DC Comics fan. There's a story for you," says Amit Desai, senior vice president of marketing and global franchise management, DC Entertainment.

Will Wally West be a Flash?

"The DC Comics slate rolling out this summer truly offers a comic book for everyone and our new advertising campaign – 'DC You' – celebrates this bold, new direction."

Why is offering a comic book for everyone "new"?

The four main themes of "DC You" will be Characters, Talent, Stories and Fans says DC

What in the bloody Hell were your themes before now? Fuck All, DILLIGAF, Retcons, and Raising Prices?

"with these advertisments [spelling mistake in original] appearing across the publisher's comine [spelling mistake in original] line beginning May 20 and video ads online beginning on June 3."

G-ddammit, Rama / DC press release people, hit fucking F7! You are actually paid for this bullshit.

Fuck it, just...

Hey, look, covers





"DC You" starts June 3rd

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
