Comic Books are fun, Comic Book fans not so much.
Everyone and their grandmas have blogs so I said, what the hell: http://comicobsessed.blogspot.com/
I don't reach too much into BC anyway. It seems a Marvel kiss up rather than a DC.
Anyway I feel that DC is fine, not every business or sports team is perfect. There will be issues but DC will be fine, there will be more new people coming and so on
I pretty much only read the titles that are driven by the vision of a writer. Wonder Woman, Batman inc., Action Comics, etc. Given that DC isn't letting this younger talent have the chance to show their voices on their ongoings, and the fact that morrison is leaving soon, it doesn't look good for my pull list when it comes to DC. They're doing all they can to run this company into the ground. They tried playing musical chairs with writers and editors, and nothing is really changing. Maybe they need to look higher up the chain for the problem.
Grandparents dead - please no jokes
make mine DC, thanks
Marvel, at least until nDCU/New 52 is by far more famous to cancel quickly bad books (-20K), while in DC Comics poor selling books lasting more issues.
Essentially Perez had figured, before he got started, that he would be able to have the same freedom that he had back in the day when he rebooted Wonder Woman (with success I might add).
But found out that he first of all had to reflect his book set in the present so it fit with whatever Morrison was doing with Superman's past in Action Comics. Problem with that was that Perez wasn't kept appraised in advance if Morrison decided to change something, stuff like the Kent's being dead.
The other bit was that according to Perez when he handed in a script, a group of people would then go over it and then send it back with a list of things they wanted changed, rinse repeat. It ended with Perez telling them that he didn't care, they could change as much as they wanted and put his name on it, but he wouldn't touch the script after sending the first one off. If I am not mistaken, he said he never even read the books when they finally came out. (So for all the Superman fans who hated his run; don't worry Perez wasn't happy either).
Color me clueless, but why is keeping Lana Lang around important?

I Vampire #5 sold 18,816. Issue 10 sold 16,517. Issue 15 sold 12,846. It's being cancelled in April with issue 19.
All I can say is this: multiple creators have had complaints about DC's current editorial policy. Not just Rozum, Perez, or Liefeld. Check out this article and scroll down for quotes from Nick Spencer and Chris Roberson. Spencer's quotes, IMO, are the most damning.
You'll also notice that Paul Cornell has left Stormwatch AND Demon Knights...and shortly afterward was hired by Marvel to write a Wolverine book. That's one of their flagship characters. In fact, several creators in recent years have left DC under a cloud and been snapped up promptly by other publishers. When several people start saying similar things about the place, it's a troubling sign.
D-Deadman! You killed Deadman!!
