As usual Warren Ellis says what everyone else is thinking (or maybe blogging) — the fact that age 40+ comics fans think the New 52 is a horrible idea may be a sign it’s working.
The New DC comics stuff looks so much like stuff I would never read that it oddly fills me with hope that they are targetting the core audience they want. If a 43-year old man looks at most of this promo stuff and goes meh, then that’s very probably a good sign for them. Best of luck to Dan D, Jim L et all for the imminent relaunch.
