Batman dead and DC dying
March 30, 6:23 PM
DC Comics, oh why have you forsaken me? I’m a DC kid. I grew up on DC. While all my friends were busy reading Uncanny X-Men, I was by myself in the corner furiously leafing through the new issue of the Marv Wolfman and George Perez New Teen Titans. I’d take the DC characters over the Marvel characters any day. Give me Batman, give me Superman, give me The Teen Titans and The Justice League and The Legion of Super-Heroes...hell, give me Ambush Bug! (Okay, I must admit that I do love Spider-Man, and as a kid I’d pick up all the DC books but also Spider-Man. Still, a little Spider-Man love does not a Marvel kid make.) At the comic shop, I defend DC Comics with every breath I have. But lately? Man, it’s been hard.
