gabzilla-z:

Questioned about Secret Six, the fan-favorite Gail Simone book that did not get a new #1 in the new 52, DiDio said that “Suicide Squad is filling that need,” and that will be where DC’s focus resides. Lee added that the spirit of the New 52 was to go forward and narrow the line to the most…

52 problems by Andrew Wheeler »

marcusto:

I wanted to make a Jay-Z 99 problems joke but that may not be proper. And there is the issue wondering where is the place for what and my friend Andrew Wheeler ( @Wheeler ) wrote a very well written article about the New 52 and the recent outrages surrounding the new issues.

\o/ everything I want to say this article says it best.

Thank god for people who can coherently put their thoughts on paper! <3

GHR KALJNIJKVL

Oh god, amazing. READ THIS.

Oh look.  It’s why I stopped reading mainstream comics when I was in the fourth grade.  This is a really good read.

Reblogging because seriously; this needs to be read.
… and I seriously need to get back into making comics.

THE DANGEROUS LADIES: Didio & Me »

dangerous-ladies:

So we were at Fan Expo 2011 in Toronto at the end of August — just a few days before Flashpoint #5 and JL #1 launched. I meant to write this sooner, but I’ve been moving and dealing with some crippling health problems since, so I haven’t exactly been in the mindset to write about this.

Just about…

This is really interesting. Mainly because they are just not doing enough to market the reboot. I am a fairly new reader to DC comics and there has been not much coming from DC that makes me want to read the reboot comics. I think I’ll just stick with the old DC and maybe start heading towards Marvel. IDK.

DC Women Kicking Ass: DC pushes back on "whining" by fans »

It’s hasn’t been all sunshine and roses in rebooting the DC universe. And I don’t mean for the fans who were some what upset to realize that some of their favorite characters were going to be changed or disappear.

I’m talking about DC themselves. The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and…

Wow, DC. Passive-agressive much?

Can always rely on Jim Lee and Booster Gold to tell it like it is.

how dare these people complain about DC repeatedly thumbing their collective nose at whatever tiny remnant of a female reader base they have left

how dare they

I was really upset that there weren’t more male characters in Sailor Moon.

I dunno, dude. If DC wanted their New 52 to have the kind of massive cultural impact it seems like they were expecting, it seems like a bad move to keep their books as hard-line male oriented. You can’t compare it to a single show marketed towards a specific gender and age group, because what DC are doing right now (or should be doing, anyway, if they want to catch up to Marvel and grab more of that sweet cross-media movie/merch money) is market to as wide of an audience as possible. That should include readers who are female!

BUT people at conventions and online are raising legitimate concerns, like: Why are a lot of female characters in DC comics so shittily written, or ignored altogether? Why are they so frequently drawn for covers in weirdly sexy poses that often don’t really fit who they are as a character? Why do so many have to play second banana to a male character in order to even make sense in DC canon? Why the hell IS there only one female character in the first issue of Justice League? How is that normal? 

I get that this is how superhero comics have always been, and that legacy and history have led to more “iconic” DC characters being male rather than female. I understand that a lot of people out there still think that men and women are entertained by entirely different things, and this isn’t always false. I believe, without a shadow of a doubt, that there’s always going to be fans of comics, and many of those fans will be fans of the superhero genre, and some of them are bound to be women and girls. Superheroes are such a huge thing in our pop culture. Even if you aren’t a fan, it’s nearly impossible these days to not know at least a couple things about them.

WHAT I’M JUST SAYING IS: If superhero comics supposedly aren’t specifically “for girls”, then shouldn’t they at least be “for everyone”? Female readers are saying they feel disenfranchised, and a lot of people are actually listening for once. If DC wanted to act smart, wouldn’t they try to seriously address this issue instead of dismissing and ridiculing their fans in front of the entire world?

Erase Stephanie Brown’s time as Robin.

I just want to talk about how stupid DC has been about this whole situation. Not only did they make Stephanie Robin just to trick to readers before they killed her off in a cruel and brutal way, but the entire set up of Stephanie’s death seems flimsy.

I'M ARROMANTIC: so I just found out why DC is doing their reboot »

homoerotics:

Warner Bros. realized Harry Potter was ending (duh) and there went their cash cow. one of my aunt and uncle’s friends who works in the comics industry got brought in to work on some of the reboot stuff, but whatever series he was working on (Lady Blackhawk or something) didn’t go…

This is why, now more than ever, they have got to appeal to a broader audience, like women and minorities, instead of just focusing on white males.

We are on the far side of the San Diego ComiCon. This is a con where DC’s creators have had their most direct exposure to their current fanbase’s reactions to the New 52. In particular, they’ve heard loud and clear that the ongoing lack of gender parity both in the comics and behind the scenes…
