In KC’s latest Westfield column, he looks through the latest Previews, recommends some books, and ponders why all of DC’s upcoming big events are set outside their core universe.
I find [Flashpoint and Retroactive] more interesting that what’s going on in the actual DCU. I just don’t find stories about Corporate Batmen, un-American Superman, uh, whatever the hell is going on with Wonder Woman, Green Lanterns fighting Green Lanterns, or the very boring Justice League (Doomsday? Eclipso?… Snore!) very inspiring, or worth my time or money. Plus, Swamp Thing with a superhero symbol on his chest is just so wrong on so many levels. Thank goodness some of the secondary titles (including Detective, Birds of Prey, Secret Six, Batgirl, Superboy, among others) are still worth reading. Just my two cents (or my $2.99, as things go).
