    does Dan Didio have too much power over the DCU?

    Bringing Swamp Thing and the Vertigo crew back over scares me a little.  I also heard he wanted Watchmen having their own multiverse planet or something like that.
     
    Who else think he is coming close to ruining DC like he did the TV show Reboot?

    ideas like this are why Alan Moore became a snake-worshipping hermit.

    Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run was mostly in DC.

    I know, but this feels like the kind of marketing ploy that he and most people are against. I feel like bringing vertigo characters in the DCU is just another excuse to beef up the number of books in a given company wide arc.

    @Krakoa: I agree with that statement. I just thought you were implying that Alan Moore's work on Swamp Thing wasn't for DC.

    @Silkcuts:
    I liked the books in the 80s when Swamp Thing and Constantine were operating in the DCU.  There were some interesting cameos that came of that, and a few amazing story arcs.  But from what you're saying I realize that the 'new' DC is not like the old DC in that this could be a gimmick.  It wouldn't mean that Swamp Thing would get a great writer and artist who could do what they wanted.  It would mean Swamp Thing would have to hang out with capes in the next crossover?  I don't understand the  mentality that has been driving these decisions, especially with the Titans over the past 6-8 years.  The handling of that team, particularly, has been beyond abysmal.
