WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM MARVEL & DC?
Here's a question for my 4 dedicated followers out there,WHAT KIND OF COMICS DO YOU WANT FROM MARVEL & DC. A simple enough question you may think but a more puzzling one is why Marvel & DC are not asking it? Boring predictable stories with tired old characters continually re-booted, re-done and re-vamped. Worse however is the blatant lack of imagination demonstrated by the big two in recent years. Exhibit A; Marvel killed off Steve Rodgers the original Captain America and replaced him with his long thought dead former side-kick over at DC they killed off Bruce Wayne the original Batman and replaced him with his former side-kick while bringing back an other long thought dead former side-kick as a villain. Exhibit B; DC run the Blackest Night story line in it's Green Lantern books which saw dead heroes rise from the grave over in Marvel they run the Necrosha story line in it's X-Men books which saw dead heroes rise from the grave (and if that's not bad enough they are also running a story line at the moment Chaos War which has dead former X-Men rising from the grave! how original). these are only two examples but there are many, many more and still sales continue to plummet and so again gentle reader I ask WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM MARVEL & DC? If your a regular comic reader I'd love to hear what you think, are you happy with multiple Batman and Avenger titles and spin offs do you look forward to trying to wade through the convoluted gloop of X-Men and Spider-man continuity or do you yearn for another attempt by DC at making Superman dark and edgy, let me know.
