    Didio era DC was never very good with long term planning or dealing with the consequences of their ideas. It was like the cat with ADHD constantly chasing the pointer.

    DC publishing never cared for the JSA. They were just cannon fodder for Carlin in Zero Hour. DC editorial's idea of the JSA was the ultimatized Earth-2 book. The fact that the tv show is doing the...

    But that's not true. She was in Lemire's Justice League United and that was back when Johns still had some pull at DC and not just doing random one-shots and writing more stuff for Image like right...

    That was the party line at DC that time and the justification Jeanette Kahn had for CoiE. I don't think we should take it at face value anymore than Didio's various self-serving justifications for...

    Less edginess and more like the ongoing is just continuing what the Gaiman mini established more than 15 years ago including all the implications of the Eternals being hardcoded with the directives...

    They can have children (with humans and deviants). They are just not Eternals. There's only 100 Eternals due to the machine and the Celestials. It ultimately makes them more distinct. For Eternals to...

    You are going to be waiting awhile. All the DC related people that care about Stargirl/JSA are all busy with other projects.

    I am sure Williamson will eventually get the bump considering he is editorial's favorite right now. But Bendis is on Justice League precisely because he is the only one approaching A-list at DC who...

    They should just give the Future State universe to Morrison to play around with.

    This mini is basically a bookend to his run on Action which was about a young Superman.

    It was Northrop Grumman. But DC was never as media savy as Marvel.

    It looks better than the last two Matrix movies, but that's a low bar.

    Daniel Cherry (the brand manager of DC) was a former esports exec at Activision. I think we are definitely seeing his influence here.

    I think it shows DC has very little confidence in their current ongongs to spin-off a conventional crossover from one of them. Instead they are just milking crisis for a cheap buck. Part of the...

    The A-list at DC clearly have no interest in doing mainline events. They might have been able to salvage Infinite Frontier. But that's simply beyond the current crop of b and c-list writers.

    Totally agreed. And I am a 2000s fan. But the stuff DC put out during the Jeanette Kahn years outclasses the newer material not to mention just being much influential like Animal Man/Swamp...

    Likely because higher ups have an axe to grind with the remaining editors from Doyle's days on the BL due to the whole Bat-dick kerfuffle, undoubtedly the worst self-inflicted wound at DC.

    He has basically all but blamed the editors (there was a lot of turnover in the Batbooks since his days on Detective). Apparently the current ones are very controlling over existing Bat-characters to...

    We are stuck with 50+ batbooks precisely because the New 52 people mismanaged everything. Superman had once upon a time 4 ongoings devoted to him not to mention Superboy/Supergirl/Steel. GL had four...

    The problem is that many of Gaiman ideas such as the entirety of reality being a result of people's collective beliefs/dreams (which goes back to the dichotomy of the Endless defining their opposite...

    That's probably not true at all. If anything the two most probable reasons are a) Didio didn't like the current direction of the DCU and thought the current titles were trash and b) Diane Nelson...

    So where's the Watchmen or Sandman or Nu52? Nu52 was a creative black hole. It had maybe 10 tolerable titles with the other 80% being mediocre trash.




    That's the editor's job to keep them on...

    The problem is the "decent" stories were buried under a mountain of horrible stories and mismanaged titles. Nostalgia for New 52 has a certain selection bias here where the terrible stuff is...

    I think GM not staying longer on Action really killed the momentum for the New 52 Superman. Superman absolutely needed a stable team with a 4-5 years long run to develop the supporting cast, the...

    No because DC was much stronger creatively during the post-Crisis/pre-Didio era. You had O'Neil running the Batbooks. Bryne/Wolfman/Stern on Superman and Perez's defining run on Wonder Woman as well...
