Take a BIG whiff of that corporate DESPERATION.


MARVEL COMICS

48.17%

DC ENTERTAINMENT


24.02%


IMAGE COMICS


10.99%

I knew something must have gone bad for DC to be DESPERATE like this, I didn't think it was this fuckin' bad.

The New 52 has hurt them in the long run, hurt them really, really bad, how bad? Bad enough the could lose there slot in the "big 2" if sales continue to drop as radically as they have in the last 5 years.

Pre-new52 there was a fanbase that lead to consistent sales that rarely ever flagged below a certain point, but after the New-52 and the realization it was a universe of fucking nothing you care about DC has realized they sawed the bottom out of the boat.

Sales are lagging farther behind than they ever have, "DC Rebirth" is a DESPERATE ploy to get fans back "HEY REMEMBER TED KORD!?!.....anybody? HELLO * echoing back* hello hello hello..."

DC has had a Deadpool expy before, actually--it was in a Batman/Superman annual, and he was explicitly a version of Deathstroke from an alternate reality whose personality just happened to match Deadpool's, and he said he went by a different name that started with "Dea-" but was stopped before he could finish it.

Lo and all the hardfought "diversity" earned by completely destroying your long term sales was washed clean and white as every character who currently has a Rebirth title.

Just HARD BOOT THIS UNIVERSE, SET THAT SHIT STRAIGHT TO "REAGAN'S IDEALISED 1950'S" BECAUSE THIS MINORITY SHIT IS KILLING IN US!!! (yes DC, that's the right take away here, you fucking numbnuts.)

No, see it's the opposite, it's about DC not being able to have it both ways, you can't chase your old "white, cis, male" fanbase off with pitchforks and fire then turn around and chase your new "inclusive, diverse, LGBT" fanbase with pitchforks and fire and expect the old ones to come slinking back.

It's clear management feels untouchable and are disconnected in the extreme, management, in particular Dan Didio, Jim Lee and most of all Eddie Berganza the rapist need to go, they are a blood clot in DC's brain.

Until that happens DC is gonna continue hemorrhaging fans, that's what the desperation of Rebirth is, they have no idea who they are or who their fanbase is.

Marvel is actively being more disgusting than DC when it comes to comics, but the key difference is that they can afford it, they have and actual casual audience thanks to the movies that they can draw on, they can afford to experiment and fuck with things.

DC is very poorly trying to copy them, Rebirth is literally the same business model copy pasted from Marvel's All-New All Different after DCyou catastrophically failed, except instead of being "All-New, All-Different" it's "Same old, Same old" as DC wants to put the floor back in the screen door submarine that is the New52, DC has nothing, not a casual audience, no more diehards after the new52, and Rebirth is some bizarre appeal to new fans that they are putting everything back the way it was when they hated them. They are losing fans faster than before the new52 and trying to copy Marvel is the worst possible idea.

Marvel is greedy and smart, DC is greedy and FUCKING UNIMAGINABLY CATASTROPHICALLY FUCKING STUPID.

Honestly I'm not even sure why they need to make a movie for each of the Justice League biggies aside from Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg.
At least Marvel Studios has the good sense to pick the heroes for their movies in such a way that they can make each one a different genre and have a superficial sense of variety to them.
But in DC's case it sounds like they're just deciding to give each on of their frontliners a movie whether or not it'll hasten superhero fatigue and cause the whole bubble to collapse in on themselves.

It might turn out shit, but I will probably pick up Blue Beetle and Birds of Prey. Ted Kord and Jaime Reyes is an idea I have been fond of in the past. It reminds me of that short-lived Earth 42 idea on /co/ in the past. As for BoP, I unironically love Black Canary's new costume, and Huntress' is ok too. Also, Batgirl's current costume has grown on me, even if I prefer Babs as Oracle.

I mean, it's no Season 3, but at least it'll hopefully tie up all the loose ends from YJ. And the shorter running time should curb a great deal of Weisman's excesses so he'll wind up delivering a sharper product.

Aside from the little details like three Jokers and the fractured continuities and such, the Big F’n Deal here is DC dropping the bombshell of Dr. Manhattan having something to do with either the creation or the fracturing of the DC Universe. It both folds Watchmen into the proper DC continuity—something that’s fucking unreal in its own right—and comes off as a desperate move to generate interest in/high sales for Rebirth.

Because buying single issues helps it so that it isn't just the one paperback.
Low single issue sales are what kill series, and a comic book based on 60s Hanna Barbara adventure cartoons that have been turned into jokes by Adult Swim is not a guaranteed top seller.

I never said that those stories existing was bad, hence "good stories". They stand the test of time. And yeah, the dude saying "poisoned the well" isn't a good way of stating it. It's not the stories fault's, nor is it the creative teams who spawned them. It's more the people who read them and write grim dark drew because they missed the point. I guess what the point is is that even really good things can inspire bad stories. It doesn't make the stories themselves bad, but they are a source of inspiration for better or worse.

And it brought at least one guy back who was driven off by the new 52.

None of this even guarantees success and given DC's track record, it will probably fail, or at the very least not so as well as they hope.

Among the Elseworlds, I really like Secret Identity. Kurt Busiek is one of the top Superman writers of all time, in my book.

Speaking of which, there's also a book by Tom De Haven called "It's Superman!", that's a 1930's period piece that's kind of a prequel/backstory to character prior to his debut in Action Comics.

I kind of liked it but yeah, it was the worst Batman cartoon and it didn't use what it had as well as it could have. There are a lot of lesser known characters that could be used, but they need to be done well, the stories have to be good, and the animation has to be good too. I'm just still bummed my favorite Batman story hasn't been adapted yet.

As for DC Nation, I really wish it stood more of a chance as I enjoyed many of the shorts and the shows they aired around. But yeah, that block was doomed in retrospect.

Really? I hate that only twist. I thought New 52 Superman was doing fine and the old one coming back to show him how A Real Superman does things, then immediately doing the same exact stories except also sometimes being a complete pill of a middle aged man showed off how very powerful the notion of angry nostalgic fanboys could be. Superman is now back to being My Dad and I hate it. It's so much regression, and so unnecessary.

I thought having Superman be less glorified and less of a fuddy-duddy middle aged depressed man was a good turn for the character, and while only Morrison's Action Comics did that just right the rest I didn't think were any worse than what Superman was doing before the reboot. Killing him off to bring back pre-FP Superman doesn't "fix" anything, it just solidified comics and their fandom as a bunch of fanboys who always cling to the past and good old days.

>“The biggest challenge [of 52] was actually, wisely, kept from us by [editor] Steve [Wacker]. EIC Dan Didio, who first championed the concept, hated what we were doing. H-A-T-E-D 52. Would storm up and down the halls telling everyone how much he hated it. And Steve, God bless him, kept us out of the loop on that particular drama. [Editor Michael] Siglain, having less seniority, was less able to do so, and there’s one issue of 52 near the end that was written almost totally by Dan and Keith Giffen because none of the writers could plot it to Dan’s satisfaction. Which was and is his prerogative as EIC, but man, there’s little more demoralizing than taking the ball down to the one-yard line and then being benched by the guy who kept referring to COUNTDOWN as ‘52 done right.'”

Which is why Waid is banned, because Didio is the worst cunt.

Hard to believe we once had hour-long Justice League episodes. That's something that will never happen again.

Actually, it was anounced even longer ago--2006. It was supposed be the third DC Animated movie, after Superman: Doomsday and Justice League. 2008 was the year it was put on hold, and apparently remained there until last year.

So from what we saw of the immediate post Death of Superman in this merged universe the thing that Clark feels is missing is Conner Who'll pop back in to help wipe the floor with these guys.

Hey! Thanks, Mr. Gazoo!

Yea this comic ends soon which is sad. But damn glad it does so on such a high note. One of the most solid runs of a book I've ever seen. Will buy the Trade without question.

All the Superman stuff is really solid now. Can't wait to see where the adventures in the city lead young Jon.

I don't think I like what they did with Barda's eyes, also she's too small.

Plot twist: She actually gets mind-controlled into declining a role in porn.

Why does an obscure anime from the 80's called Black Magic M-66 know how to write Lois Lane better than modern writers?

(Caution NSFW due to adorable nudity.)

Because a shitload of modern writers would not know what to do with a nuanced female character who has active agency over her own life if said character was dumped in their laps.

I want to make a hard hitting political intrigue story around Superman being completely outclassed by a natural disaster and Clark Kent being overwhelmed by the resultant mismanagement, government incompetence and disgusting aspects of human nature.

I want the Kevin Carter side of the Superman universe,

Gotta be more specific, Marvel's version overtakes any search, at least give me a company.

When I said "book", I meant "prose novel".

Both the Majors having an editorial shakeup.

Hope this is a turning point for them both.

They might make a DCAU Justice League reunion movie if it gets enough traction.

If this would FINALLY mark the last time Conroy does the Batman voice, I would be all in.

>breaking the law and blatant bias in journalism are now a-okay according to Superman

Egads. Bendis’ Superman is going to be one enormous AMERICA-tier run that’s never going to end

Am I the only one who actively avoids a book now when Bendis gets a hold of it? I stopped giving a shit about X-Men at that time, I stopped caring about Guardians of the Galaxy when it was rebooted with Bendis at helm, and now Superman will be another book I won't ever bother checking.

I mean circa 2005 or so with the New Avengers, his style was okay as it was fresh, but it became just poor by the end of the decade. And even then I only liked it because I wasn't reading Avengers before that to begin with (he axed a lot of the cast on purpose, ignoring entire storylines).

Superman as an immigrant...
Only by the most technical definition, which is a perfect example of how this is going to go wrong already.
