I promised myself that when I got my first paycheck, I would buy more trades and hardcovers in one sitting than I ever have.
(From left to right: Waid’s Daredevil Volume 1 TP, JLA Deluxe Edition Vol.2 TP, Marvel Zombies TP, Batman: The Black Mirror HC, Joker HC, The Walking Dead Vol.9 TP, Hitman: Local Heroes TP, and that World’s Finest one I’ve never heard of that I got for free)
I’m getting kind of tired of people on Tumblr complaining about DC all the time. I know that I’ve posted my concerns and disapointments about things that they’ve been doing in the new 52, so I’m definitely not trying to say that everyone should just suck it up and take whatever is given to us. There comes a point though where you have to see things from DC’s point of view. We should remind ourselves that they’re not some evil organization that’s trying to ruin everything we love about comics; they’re just a company trying to sell they’re product in the best way they can. Picking apart every.single.thing that DC does and vilifying them as some supervillain that’s out to kill the fun in your life is just really pointless and false. I honestly feel that there are some people that will pick apart absolutely anything that DC does, just because they’re mad that DC decided not to bring back they’re character or something.
Of course, you’re entitled to your opinions and are allowed to complain about as many things as you want. I’m just sayin’ it’s annoying.
Honestly Liefeld, just because Slade’s origin story is the same now in the new 52 doesn’t mean you had to copy each panel from the original Judas Contract story verbatim. I’m all for paying homage to Marv Wolfman and George Perez, but you could have been original about it. Pure laziness.
I hope DC has learned their lesson and they pick a better person to helm Deathstroke in these coming issues. Hell, they could even bring Kyle Higgins back. Genius idea to replace him by the way DC and with a person like Liefeld too. Huge Mistake. Kyle Higgins was doing a tremendous job with Deathstroke, best I’ve seen in years. I almost feel like DC gave up on his run before it had a real chance to shine.
Get your shit together DC and stop sweeping Deathstroke under the bus!
From this week’s Justice League #0. Let’s go through the list of things we can observe here:
-Hub City still exists and is The Question’s city of operation -He fights street crime -Classic ?-notes -?-mist -Blue trenchcoat and fedora -Paranoid detective, likely inspired by JLU interpretation -Seemingly nonsensical babbling, harsh speech bubbles, similar to Rorschach
So far it looks like DC’s new Question is a combination of Charlton, old DCU, JLU, Watchmen, and their own new take. I’m extremely pleased with this. Let’s hope he gets his own ongoing series like Phantom Stranger.
