This, from a place that still hasn't achieved statehood.

They'll expand the multiverse in February, in preparation for Final Infinite Crisis in March which will bring everything back to one universe in April in preparation for a line wide reboot with all titles restarting at issue 1 in May, which will set up the reintroduction of a multiverse in June with all titles going back to their original numbering in July as DC prepares for Infinity Crisises in Infinite Universes in August, which will set the stage for a complete reboot in September with the limited maxi series Infinite Infinity Crisis in Infinite Multiverses in October, where the universe will be rebooted each issue, as the get ready for Infinity5G in November, where the multiverse will be rebooted every page of every issue.

Exactly.

DC has always sucked, but in the last 20 years, they've gone completely off-the-rails. Are there any new readers of DC comics? I think the only people buying that crap are 50-year-old manchildren.

Marvel isn't any better, but at least they don't stink of desperation.

I don't understand why they're so obsessed with continuity. You end up with these superhero comics about superhero comics. It's no wonder why young people read manga instead now.

realmolo: Are there any new readers of DC comics?


My best friend is 23. She started reading comics when she lived with me four years ago, because they were sitting around. She liked the Doom Patrol and Harley Quinn TV shows and tried to start reading those DC comics last year but was sufficiently turned off with what's going on that she gave up almost immediately.

This from someone who  collected and read all of the Marvel Battleworlds Secret Wars stuff a couple years ago.

DC needs to be taken away from everyone involved in running it. Maybe we could take up a collection and get it sold to Kurt Busiek or something.

I loved Doom Patrol so I started reading them and HATED it.  I blame Gerard Way, but I knew who the characters were (based on the show) and the comics still made no sense to me.

As for the DC movie-verse, I think they learned something from Crisis in the Arrowverse and said "We need to do more of THAT"

Yes. My son. He's gotten really into The Flash thanks to the CW TV show and wanted to see how it is in the comics.

So, of course he goes for the DC series with the most tie ins of continuity and reboots and the like thanks to multiverse and time travel shenanigans.

Luckily, he's mostly going by trades, so just started with the most recent Flash volume 1 trade, which collects the Godspeed arc from immediately post the Rebirth reboot of 2017.

That's all way too complicated for it's own good.

Given the number of short-arc spinoffs with their high-selling characters, both Marvel & DC stink of desperation.

I've grown tired of it. DC's become a mess, Marvel's success with the MCU has left doody deposits all throughout their comic work, and so I find myself driven to indie comics.
