Is it just me or have the quality of DC Rebirth books as a whole really gone south. While I normally love DC’s stories, they have for the majority of the time felt very boring and lacking as a whole not including very few books. A lot of the stories feel bland or poorly written, not something that DC comics is known for. The only good material I have seen recently are Green Lantern Corps, Aquaman, Doomsday Clock And The Terrifics books. I have no idea if I’m seeing this is a wrong light or if DC has been off its game. What do you think?
It's fine. Lots of good books. Trouble is 2 of the main characters have worse books now. King's Batman is nowhere near as good as Snyder's run in the New 52. And Bendis is undoing a ton of the great stuff Tomasi and Jurgens did with Superman. I was so sad to see Tomaasi go, he made Superman so cool. Now, the rest of the DC books I read are on par/even better than they were before. (Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Detective, etc..) Thing is Marvel is much better now than it was a year ago. Spencer's ASM much better than Slotts. Slott went to the FF and is doing alright there, much to my surprise and delight, (though The Terrifics is still a better FF than the FF) I hope Chip Zadursky (sp?) gets a shot at the FF, his Marvel 2 in 1 was good stuff.
Rebirth ended with the No Justice thing and then well it was a downhill decline after DKM. At this point I stopped reading DC and actually read non-big two imprints (mainly Image), indies, and X-Men. I didn't even finish the Tomasi & Gleason run on Superman because I knew Bendis was coming and didn't wanna waste my time lol
It certainly has lost its momentum that’s for sure. A lot of books I started when it began I’ve slowly dropped over the months. I’m invested enough to see where this thing ends with Doomsday Clock which I have been enjoying, and seems to be where the “REBIRTH” era will end. Unless something drastic grabs my attention it’s looking like I might have to pack it in once Johns finishes that arc...whenever the Hell that is
Because a relaunch will always be a gimmick. It doesnt help when the people responsible for the N52 are still mucking things up. Then they add in more idiots like Bendis and Tom King. Until we go back to the original Post Crisis verse, scrap the mediocre writers and their ideas, put Didio and Lee on a leash and stop using Watchmen scapegoats Rebirth is just gonna get worse.
Convoluted continuity and inconsistent art. It's so jarring reading a book and the art style changes every other page. Further, the continuity is all over the shop. One thing is canon one day, the next it has been retconned. Rince and repeat. It is why I have stated swaying more to manga in recent years. Consistent art and you can simply jump onto to chapter 1 without being bogged down by decades worth of history and continuity changes
