A Facebook page has sprung up to organize a protest march against the new awful designs of the new 52. It seems some folks don’t like the new fresh DC designs that are all new:
Are you utterly baffled, disappointed and just ANGRY to see how DC ruins your favorite character’s design and wipes decades of comic history out of the mainstream universe? Well, you’re not alone!
And why not make some noise at the biggest pop-culture event this year, where creators, artists and writers appear in person – show them how fans – the fans of the classic characters, the (nevertheless slightly changing) designs, the character’s history and personality – really feel about it!
Thus far 223 people have RSVP’d for the walk, which will take place Saturday, July 23 from 2-3pm near the convention center. Commenters seem split on whether this is a necessary action to show that the people must be heard, or a sad example of people who just can’t let go of a fantasy that belongs to everyone:
Wherever you stand, the idea of a DCnÜ protest march is pretty wild.
