According to Bleeding Cool lead rumormonger and fellow cancer to fandom Rich Johnston, DC Comics has been spooked by its sales slump and is close to abandoning the principles of its DC You relaunch to return to its previous strategy, DC Some of You. Johnston says that DC editorial, and these are actual quotes here, have been telling creators to "stop Batgirling" and "go back to meat and potatoes." Concentric circles were just too confusing. Instead, we'll just have one circle. Maybe a square.
Johnston says that this new directive will manifest itself in ways such as Superman ditching the 90s jeans and t-shirt look, but we're actually more concerned with how it will affect unique books like Black Canary. Ironically, Batgirl herself will not be affected, as that book is doing well. Johnston suggests that comic book fans want their diversity in small doses, where it can be "special," calling readers "a lot more conservative than some people give them credit for."
But don't expect a return to the pre-Flashpoint universe. According to a report earlier today, The sales of Convergence weren't so hot either. We're talking Nu52 all the way, baby! The Nu 52 is back! Nu Nu 52! Wooo!
Meanwhile, comics luminary Rob Liefeld and his friends have other ideas for how to save DC Comics:
#FireDidio, eh? Et tu, Rob Liefeld?!
