So,when DC begins distancing its super hero titles from the events in Infinite Crisis when that series is currently only at #5 [of 7] it seems to confirm the worse fears of a cynic. ONE YEAR LATER is a sudden leap of 12 months indicating that Infinite Crisis will be quite far from a clear,defining series. However,then comes 52....a 52 part weekly series taking,obviously,a year to run and,we are told,"filling in the gaps from Infinite Crisis"
A host of writers and artists are involved.
Now,let's get this right:Seven Soldiers =1 issue,several mini series then a final single issue. Rann-Thanagar War....series has a dead end -hey,a special to finish it off! In fact,there were several series with dead-ends resulting in "one off specials" concluding the series.
And,as many long time comic shop customers are cancelling orders in the UK shops I've spoken to,and many of these retailers are declaring declining sales because their customers feel they are being "ripped off",there seems to be a far from overwhelming positive reaction to what DC is doing.
And now we have 52.
I'm sure everyone has their own opinion but,with comic prices rising and the market being flooded:how long will it be before the fans leave titles and DC takes a bloody nose for what is,lets face it,not making money [as businesses are meant to do] but simply greedily exploiting its fans?
Interested in hearing what you all think.
