“People should not get hung up on continuity, you aren’t really enjoying the story.”
….continuity is a key part of a story.
Continuity is kind of what MAKES it a story. Otherwise you’ve just got a jumbled mess of random scenes and ideas that gets confusing—and therefore annoying—really, really fast.
“I am entirely confused on how Marcus To only gets to pencil one book in the reboot, but Rob Leifeld gets THREE.
I’m looking, but there’s no pictures anywhere.
Apparently has something to do with the storyline in the Animal Man series. Which I’m hoping means it’s just temporary and he’ll be back to his green self at some point.
You are not telling me that’s supposed to be Gar.
I want green BB back please.
Yeah, it’s him. Like I said, hopefully the red’s temporary.
What IS it with the reboot and red? First Nightwing and now Beast Boy? jfdklsjfdsl
“The way to bring in new readers and fans isn’t rebooting. It’s creating a really good, really compelling TV show for kids and adults alike. Girls and kids will watch the shows. They won’t read swill like Catwoman. If DC works on a show that has the right amount of funny, dark, real, and smart writing, they will bring in new readers by the truckload. I wish they understood that.”
… Tony definitely looks sexier.
oh my GOD
Both look sexy to me. <3
What about SwanQueen!Tim?
I’m so sorry
Dick, don’t complain to the Swan Queen. You’ll end up stabbed multiple times in the face with a nail file.
Peej, you are flawless.
This speaks for itself.
So I am reading that Cracked.com article, “The 6 Most WTF Special Edition Comics Ever Released”. Now first, for a quick refresher, here are the current Robin and Red Robin:
NOW THEN, take a look at these.
And please, note the comments.
They were right the first time.
DC responds to the Starfire discussion:
@DCComics We’ve heard what’s being said about Starfire today and we appreciate the dialogue on this topic.
@DCComics We encourage people to pay attention to the ratings when picking out any books to read themselves or for their children.
I bet this is about that 7-year-old girl who didn’t want to read comics because she loved Starfire in Teen Titans (the show) and hated her in a few pages of Red Hood and the Outlaws that she saw.
I assume that is what they are attempting to respond to, but they are not only missing the point of that article, but completely ignoring all the actual adults who really don’t mind sex in their comics but object to the way it’s presented.
Oh fer cripes sakes. This is definitely about the 7-year-old girl article.
DC is not missing the point. They’re intentionally ignoring it.
They didn’t care about any of the other legitimate complaints. Not the well-articulated CA article by Laura Hudson, not the intelligent commentary by Andrew Wheeler, nor Ms. Snarky’s blog entry, not Fishy Intent’s discussion of the rape interpretation in the Catwoman issue and how it is not romantic fantasy, nor the pointed numbers comic from Shortpacked. They cared about the article with a real little girl (with photos of that very real little girl) that didn’t like New Starfire because THAT was the one that might have hit bigger headlines than the existing fanbase websites. That was the article that might start a CNN or a FOX News story that said look at this adorable child. Look what DC has done to her favorite superhero. And that, my fellow fans, would have undone much of the good hype they’ve built up in the big name news about the New 52. So they cared about her story. They feel safe ignoring the rest of us, because the nuance between a positive portrayal of Starfire and her sexuality and what Lobdell did doesn’t make an easy front page headline that will enrage John Q. Public. A disheartened 7-year-old girl looking at nu!Starfire does.
Seriously, what a dick move, DC. You honestly think that writer let their daughter read the whole book? Sorry, but they have more decency than you do, DC. Fuckin idiots…how rude. I’d be so offended if I was that guy.
*SIGHS* Just leave it to the idiots to focus on “THINK OF THE CHILDREN” discussions and ignore/miss every single other point. I find myself now wishing they had not posted that article or at least not posted pictures of their kid. While I get the point, it took too much attention from the others. OH well, too late now. *sighs* and Good job DC, you proved you’re an idiot company by paying attention to the wrong thing. Assholes. 9_9
….. I really just don’t know what to say.
