    They won't for the simple reason it's an IP farm. Even if there are more bloodbaths down the line, they're not shutting down the actual DC comic division.

    They can probably outsource the actual costs of publishing via licensing to other comics companies; but they won’t sell off the IPs

    While that is true, the thing is if they aren’t interested in making content with those IPs they might not care about having a farm.

    If that was true then the CBR boards wouldn't exist.

    The only thing that will be safe so far are tha bat-books. Everything else is probably doomed if Zaslav gets his hands in the comic departments.

    This was hyperbolic but poorly phrased. What I meant was that I doubt the comics division is high up on zaslav's chopping list, pretty sure he's focused on rehauling hbo max because this isn't the first we're hearing of his ideas for less scripted content on there.

    But even if the comic division was axed suddenly, there's still some big comic fans in position of power and influence at wb, so I doubt they'll let it stay dead for long.

    I'm just questioning what the point of buying a company with thousands of IPs and scripted shows just to not want to do scripted stuff.
    It seems rather... what?

    Let's say they're shutting down the comics division then I want the money to go to the game and animation department since those are their strongest and least divisive output

    Aren’t they planning on selling off their games division, or at least gut it like a fish

    There are rumours, but I think nothing is confirmed?

    Wasn't 2021 the most successful year in comics history?
    love is the real "success."
