Okay am I going to far with the whole Much Ado About Nothing slant? It’s a comedy that has it’s heavy drama ties as all good Shakespeare plays have. Is this going to be the DC Comics comedy of errors with it’s own fandom? Are DC Comics not doing a reboot, not doing a rebuid (well…) or not doing another big Event across all their books. No. They’re said to be bringing back the legacy to their DC Comics universe. Mixing from the past & present. Huh.
Well, let’s listen to head creative DC Comics Mafia guys, Geoff Johns here:
And Johns talks more on Comic Book Resources, some of his words here:
It started when [DC Co-Publishers] Dan [DiDio] and Jim [Lee] came to me and said that they wanted to end things at #52, and work build back to a shared universe and big stories. They wanted to take another look at everything. Dan mentioned the word “Rebirth” to me. I said, look, that word’s incredibly important to me — I feel some pride and ownership of that word. I said it means something extremely specific in my mind, so if we’re going to do something with “Rebirth”, it’s important to me to understand what that means. And like everyone else, I’m skeptical of relaunches. So it had to be something that everyone put everything they had into it. That was special. That had a reason. And “Rebirth” to me is a reason. It’s beyond the back-to-basics approach. It’s not just going back to square one. It’s much, much more than something that simplistic. We all need to do our best to get this right and everyone has come together to create a cohesive universe and terrific stories that work individually as well as together. We’re also doing it by building on everything that’s been published since Action Comics #1 up thru The New 52. The “DC Universe: Rebirth #1” is an 80 page one-shot I’m writing which is re-laying the groundwork for DC’s for the future while celebrating the past and present. It’s not about throwing anything away. It’s quite the opposite.
So what do get a teaser of? A NEW LOOK SUPERMAN, AQUAMAN, ARROW, FLASH, A NEW GREEN LANTERN & lastly SUPERGIRL.
Are they TWEENS?! They’re young? Where’s WONDER WOMAN? Where’s CYBORG? I’m glad to see more women in a DC Comics big promo but… The HOLY DC TRINITY IS WHERE?!
WHERE THE FnCK IS BATMAN?!
Is that who the AQUAMAN character is to be?! Is that why Scott Snyder is moving on from his Batman run?! Will the DC Universe: Rebirth have a Batman?!
But Johns said Legacy, right?
I kinda want to rant, I want to speak out but at the same time I’m finding myself much like this cartoon
I kinda don’t care, not enough outside Geoff Johns singing his PR song to really shive a git…
