Your wish has been granted. Hellboy is dead. Not comics-dead, but dead-dead.

However, being that he's a demon and Mignola's planning another year of stories, he'll likely be stuck adventuring in Hell itself.

Red Hood & The Outlaws (Aka Teen Titans) had a good idea, but they fucked up the characters. The worst offense: They turned Starfire into a complete slut with no long term memory. It is really bad. I recommend you all avoid it like a gas station bathroom.

Okay, so apparently the new Suicide Squad has Amanda Waller in it, except "The Wall" has become "The Rail."

I'm sorry, but I sort of LIKED her not having the same cookie cutter, 22-inch wait goddess figure. Lord knows it helped prove that Bruce Timm can draw more than one figure in animated works. It worked for her too. In short, this change bugs me almost as much as the character lobotomy on Starfire.

So help me if I find them messing around with The Endless and giving the same treatment to Despair.

I hate that Grant Morrison's only working on Action Comics now. He was doing awesome work with Batman. Oh, well. Maybe he'll have more time to work on original stuff.

New logo to go with the Reboot apparently...

Well, if the idea of the logo is to imply that they're now just another cold no-nonsense corporation and not a company that makes comic books, then by all means mission accomplished... Rolling Eyes

Context is everything:

The logo will vary depending on what comic it's attached to.

I'm actually really, really sad about the New 52 idea, but mainly, it's because I think they really had a lot of momentum with the One Year Later stuff and a lot of things they were doing in the comics (Dick Grayson as Batman, Spoiler as Batgirl, etc). I was really jazzed that the DCU, as a whole, was really moving forward and establishing a new mythos rather than just re-treading the same waters that it'd been doing forever, something that even Marvel seemed to be breaking away from (although we'll see how long it is until they pull something similar). As of New 52, plop, down the hole. At this point, especially since Waid is ending Irredeemable and Incorruptible soon, I think I'm just going to stop reading comics for a while and focus on RPGs.


Who likes role-playing games? Me. Way too goddamn much.
