Comic fans were promised something new and different with DC Comics Rebirth. A relaunch, not a reboot.
Unfortunately all they’re getting is more of the same. I wonder when are comic fans going to stop falling for the okie-doke?
No, DC Comics Rebirth is not a reboot. No, it’s just a Re-hash of the New 52 Basically DC’s editors are just putting lipstick on a pig and calling it salmon. Throwing up yet another middle finger at DC Comic fans.
Yeah, the original Superman is Back. But he’s in the New 52 Universe. Along with the New 52 Superman who will be Clark Kent. And we get a whole host of characters like New 52 Black Kid Flash in Wally’s classic costume shoehorned into the New 52 Universe. And more new costumes.
Again, lipstick on a pig’s asshole. Same shit, different day.
And sadly many comic fans are ready to plant a kiss on those pig’s ass cheeks. Not understanding how DC Comics continues to shit on them.
DC Comics editorial says they want to change. That they understand how they’ve alienated comic fans and in the face of all the losses. That they want to reconnect with comic fans.
But it’s clear they JUST DON’T GET IT.
Giving readers the exact same universe with the a few old characters sprinkled in with some new number one issues is just another SLAP in the face. Proving nothing will change at DC until there is an end of the Didio Era or DC goes bankrupt, whichever comes first.
What DC’s Editors are doing is no different than an abusive husband does when he beats up his wife. After he finishes beating the shit out of her he says he’s “sorry” and offers her “apology gifts” like jewelry or expensive clothes. After She accepts the gifts and the co-dependent cycle continues.
Dan Didio, Jim Lee and DC’s editorial team continue to beat up on comic fans by pushing their New 52 Universe down their throats. Then when they walk away for five years and DC starts losing money and market share they offer DC fans the Original Superman and a couple of characters as an “apology gift” for the disaster known as the New 52 Universe.
An attempt to get DC Fans to return to the co-dependent relationship they had with his dysfunctional DC Comics.
I’m hoping many comic fans don’t take the apology bait and buy those new #1 issues that are a part of DC Comics Re-hash. Because all that’s going to do is enable DC to remain a dysfunctional and damaged brand. The more comics readers buy the more co-dependent they become. And life is too short to allow anyone to abuse you.
If DC’s editorial can’t respect comic fans then they don’t deserve their money. Simple as that. Create products the customer wants and the customers will come back.
DC Comic fans have said from day one all they want is their CLASSIC DC Universe back. And they should accept no substitutions. Vote with your wallet and let DC’s Rebirth be stillborn at the first issue. Comic fans, you deserve BETTER than what DC has to offer.
