A Picture Share!

Saturday, February 11, 2006

I hadn't been in a comic shop in a while, I recently went back to grab the IDW Transformers. Getting back in the habit, I also got the first couple issues of All Star Superman.

I kinda want to read DC comics again. I was neve that big on Marvel, but I could always find a couple DC books I liked.

Then I noticed EVERY SINGLE BOOK had some kind of Infinite Crisis tie in. And with so much volume I decided I'm pretty much out of the DC universe until the dust settles and I can read the important bits in a TPB, which leaves me pretty much not reading any regular DC book until spring 2007.

I know this seemed like a big good idea and had I been on from the beginning or had a bigger comic budget, I might've been on for the ride. But being a casual reader and not wanting to buy 8 books a week for the next year just to sort out what the fuck is going on is really off putting.

In the end will this REALLY change Batman or Superman or any of their big heroes? I mean, it can't. Not if DC hs any sense. Theres a new Superman movie coming, and theres always Batman stuff everywhere... shouldn't they have more mainstream stuff to get new readers and casual readers hooked in? Shouldn't they at least make it easier for casual readers to jump into Crisis or any other major arc? Or did they just fucking give up and put out the All Star books so they could have an out of continuity comic for casual readers while the Infinite Wank-a-thon rolls into actual infinity...
