Just wondering if other people are feeling anything like me about the current DC books.
The format of one short main character story and one back up story just isn’t working for me. If I buy Action Comics it’s because I like Supes; Wonder Woman for Diana; Batman for Bruce, etc. But at the moment I feel like I am reading half a main character story and then its time to wait for the next issue.
Just reading through my last month’s DC books has continually left me with a “er, ‘is that it’ feeling”. The new format just doesn’t give the stories room to breathe. Just not working for me, which is a real shame because DC has always been my favourite universe.
AT&T and Warner really seem to be messing up some great intellectual property they have. It really needs to be in the hands of people who care more. I can’t help thinking the dramatic reduction in staff and fee structures for creatives is behind this, rather than some grand plan to make the most of the characters.
Oooh, I’m really enjoying Batman! I started with 106 and this storyline has been fun. I have no preconceived notion of what a good Bat-book is, and no connection to previous stories in the series, so I’m just along for the ride.
Quite funny that the first two responses are about Batman books, as those are the ones I am yet to read. Action Comics and Sensational Wonder Woman are the ones that that I found a bit unfulfilling. At least there is hope when I get to the Bat-books. Thanks : )
Im pretty high on robin after reading the new one last nite. Really excited where that’s going. I’m not at all familiar with damien’s backstory and history nor do I know how a lot of older batman fans feel about him but I personally think he is someone to watch out for and will be buying up #655-657’s whenever I get a chance now. He’s badass!! And so is flatline. She is going to be the perfect rival for him.
Nightwing I’m on that’s Batman adjacent just got suicide squad because of titans crossover. all Batman or Batman adjacent titles. Oh and Far sector. No flash. No superman. No justice league. idk DC outside of Batman was never my thing. I enjoyed Nee 52 flash a lot. That’s it. I’ve bought spec books and flipped em. But nothing I’ve actually read.
