I need a little community love to help refuel my enthusiasm for DC.
I’ve been reading DC comics for 25+ years. I understand that ever couple years they “crisis” everything to bring in new readers and adjust legacy characters. Since the launch of ReBirth I’ve been struggling… there doesn’t seem to Be the same care and grace taken with these characters. Fans who have concerns are told that they’re the problem and not the books or radical departures from the characters we’ve been reading.
Take the Latest issue of Batman #83 for example.
This book is boring. We’ve been paying $3.99 for the past couple issues where it’s just been one scene deconstructed throughout the entire issue. Batman is no longer exciting or someone to look up to. He’s has been moping around not using his deductive prowess for over a year.
Normally around the holidays I spend the time with my nephews playing super friends and reading them great stories. This year however I don’t see the point. I don’t know how they can get excited about these “heroes” anymore.
I’m trying to not let my sour taste ruin my nephews experience but I don’t see the point anymore. Why get them excited about stories and characters that are so grossly neglected. I’m seriously close to just closing shop and ending my relationship with DC.
