Okay everyone...

What is everyone's take on the most recent cash grab for DC?

It does seem very odd to make every creator come up with a WTF moment regardless if it fits the current story or not.

Thoughts?

I think it's kinda weird having all the big moments happen at the same time, but I am intrigued to see what they'll be.

It is a little gimmicky though. They should probably just let stories develop at their own pace.

Gives me the impression that the old execs at DC are trying to be "fresh" and "hip" ...won't be long before Superman starts dressing like Vanilla Ice and quoting memes...

Some of the changes are bigger such as a new Stormwatch reboot. Post flashpoint, I do expect more reboots on the same property over the years, business as usual. My suggestion is to do relaunches/reboots every January so customers will know where to start again every year.

That would prevent any continuity from ever being built, and alienate pretty much every established fan.

I'm looking forward to see the WTF moments in the books I read. But the Stormwatch news has me confused. I don't know if it's going to be the same book I like or not.

When books don't sell, dc usually resorts to reboots so what happened to Stormwatch is normal in dc. Also looking forward to more of the rebooted New Gods. Hopefully, Michael Holt will have something to do in the main earth.

I just hope that everything that happens sticks and this does not become a "out of continuity month" I would be very upset if this becomes just a month long April fools month.
