    Yep. All that redesign and I can't get a simple alphabetical list of what books are in store this week.

    Yep, that's my problem too.

    I loved how the last version could give me an alphabetical list (no pictures taking up space, just a list) of what titles were available in a given week for any week in the next two or three months. I used that function daily and now it's gone.
    Anyone who thinks DC is bringing back the Silver Age doesn't know what the Silver Age is.

    There is no such word as "persay," it's per se, two words, from the Latin.

    If all of the interaction is on Facebook and Twitter, what do we need the DC site for?
    Am I missing something?
    Not slamming it, just not sure I understand what they are going for.
    Then again, I don't like Facebook and won't do Twitter; so maybe it's all just passing me by.

    Why does it seem like CBR and Newsarama are always afraid to ask real questions to DC and Marvel? Fans have been extremely negative about the redesign, so much so that DC took down the homepage comment section the very first day because it was almost entirely negative. You ask about the message boards, but no follow-up questions to the same canned response we've already heard? This interview is no different than a DC press release.

    I like what he says about it and the thought process of the site.

    I mean, while i appreciate the fact that without anonymity you take more care of what you post, i am afraid of posting or liking something and it appearing on my facebook.
    Also, the solicits are very hard to find and figure out. DC's solicit page and The Source were much better before.

    You can change the settings so that your comments won't show up on your actual FB page. Just uncheck the add to FB box.

    I like it. Many sites are doing this or have done this now. Using existing or emerging social media to fuel comments. It also means more hits on search engines and possibly more eyes on their features/newsworthy items.

    That's my point; I think maybe I'm just too out of touch to adapt anymore. I've had friends nag me till I got a facebook page, but I never use it cause it just seems so user un-friendly.
    I can't seem to wrap my head around logging in to facebook to talk on DC website. Seems counter-intuitive.
    But really, I seem to be in the minority that doesn't like the Facebook format for much of anything.

    i have a comic and real life facebook page,just sign in,and go comment on stuff on the DC website.its actually pretty cool,but for the fact that the places i post on the website isnt very busy.
