roy (and lian)
with another new hair color?
to match his suits
Pffft, I concur.
sigh. ikr?? i’m preemptively lamenting the wasted potential of this reboot.
yeah anna and i were just talking about how they could like fix roy’s gross problematic backstory (by making him native!!!) but they won’t. (they’ll probably fix lian though. i hope.) and like
they could fix steph robin but they won’t
they could change high-profile characters to non-white non-straight and non-cis but they won’t
endless shit they could fix and fucking WON’T
man i’m just thinking about how great this could be if dc could actually be trusted to make good decisions
think about this, if dick is robin?
if dick is going to be robin?
theyre probably going to skip jason todd
they won’t skip jason they need the case to break at every dramatic moment
they’ll skip steph though
I would like to write an article in which I talk to comic book fans about the recent big DC announcement (see here) where they plan to relaunch their entire universe with 52 brand new #1 titles.
Are you a new(ish) comic book fan who sees this as an opportunity to get into comics, or try some new books? I want to talk to you.
Are you an old comic book fan who sees this as a headache, or possibly the most brilliant move a company has ever made in the world of comics? I want to talk to you.
If you have any interest in participating, please e-mail me at Matthew@MultiversityComics.com ASAP. Thanks.
DC Entertainment’s Senior Vice President of Sales, Bob Wayne, issued a letter to retailers addressing the announcement. While no prices were discussed for the new books or their digital counterparts, Wayne addressed the question of narrative continuity:
We have taken great care in maintaining continuity where most important, but fans will see a new approach to our storytelling. Some of the characters will have new origins, while others will undergo minor changes.
More on this as it develops.
WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN DC
“Some of the characters will have new origins…”
Oh god! Someone hide Donna!
ok i have to go to stats now but
before i go HEY DC I HAVE A REALLY GOOD IDEA
how about you alienate your fans especially the ones who don’t fall into the white/straight/male/etc. ~ideal fanbase~ with a pointless reboot
for no reason other than like
