WTF IS THIS NEW 52

I’ve been reading comics for almost 40 years and mostly DC. Over the years I’ve seen great creative work from Moore, Miller Bryne et al. Amazing stories that respected the history of these great characters. I have tried to read the New 52, I find the storylines disrespectful to the history, insulting to the fans , and just down right crap. I keep waiting for this all to be some bad dream that will reset itself. As it stands now I just have to stop reading DC , it’s plain bad. Didio should be ashamed that his vision has destroyed a legacy of great story telling.

Hey everyone. I’m about to tell you all a really personal story, and then, I could use your help.

The blonde in the pictures above is my little sister, Rachel. She’s 14, a freshman in high school. She’s one of the smartest kids you’ll ever meet, to be honest. Smarter than me. She’s got an amazing sense of humor and the most gorgeous smile, the sort of person who just lights up a room with laughter after being in it for five minutes. Even though I’m 19 and I should be the tough one, she’s held me when I cried, and she cooks me dinner when I’m too lazy to do it, and she gives me confidence when I don’t believe in myself. We cosplay together, we fangirl together, and we talk Tumblr-speak at the dinner table. It’s not an exaggeration when I tell you this girl is my entire world. I’d do anything for her, and I love her more than words could fully describe.

On Friday, she was admitted to a psychiatric hospital after a year of battling severe depression and anxiety.

She thinks she’s ugly. She thinks her future doesn’t matter. She often hates herself, and can’t see all the amazing things everyone else knows is obvious just from their first glance at her. 

The red tie on my wrist you see in the third picture was from her. Behavioral hospitals don’t allow anything with strings on them, so after she pulled out the tie for her sweatshirt, she wrapped it around my wrist for me to wear until she gets back. It might only be for a weekend, or it might be for longer. I don’t know yet.

Here’s where I’m asking for your help. At the earliest, Rachel is coming home on Sunday, but it’ll probably be longer. Still, that means I might only have two days to get the message out. I want to show her when she comes home that there are people out there who believe in her. Who think she’s beautiful and worth fighting for, worth recovery. 

So please, reblog this and prove to her that she has more support than she ever realized. I’m hoping it’ll give her some confidence than she can get better.

“Hi everyone my leg was grotesquely broken when cops attacked our peaceful protest in Rhode Island. The mainstream media (especially the Associated Press) has ignored these horrendous photographs that show the horrific injuries I suffered when the cops attacked. Please feel free to make these telling photos available to all your friends who value freedom and liberty”
Can we kill cops yet?

How do you search on the updated Tumblr app for iPod. I can’t figure it out. Anybody help?

Thoughts on DCU reboot

I’m a long time dc comics reader ( 35 + years ) and I felt the need to share my thoughts on this upcoming relaunch. I understood the need for the Crisis On Infinite Earths.

Over the years writers got lazy and just kept creating another “earth” so they didn’t have to work hard at placing their stories in the DCU base  ” Earth 1 “. Eventually we had so many earths and versions of characters that it just didn’t make sense anymore. The goal of COIE was to stream line the DCU and eliminate duplicate characters. It worked to a point, we lost the Barry Allen Flash but gained the Wally West Flash which was a far more interesting character in my opinion, the Huntress seemed more edgy as the mob daughter avenging her loss with blood instead of the formula good guy hero origin we had from Helena Wayne. Unfortunately the writers started playing fast and loose with the “new” universe and it got convoluted again thus the need for zero hour, 52 etc.

So  I can understand the need for some change and streamlining it all again. The problem is the approach that DC is now taking just doesn’t cut it for me. We have been hearing that they are bringing back the worst of the 90’s and I even read that Jim Lee challenged someone on Twitter to define that 90’s look. I can easily define that 90’s look for him, it is all that IMAGE comics crap that Lee & Liefeld put out, that is what we are afraid of and that is what they are now offering. The costume designs, Superman Harley Quinn and Red Robin in particular, are awful , they look too complicated and busy. It is simply change for changes sake. Original characters such as Harley are just another garden variety homicidal psycho now. The other problem with this relaunch is the loss of titles, pretty much every title I follow is gone or altered. The new Batman & Robin with Dick and Damien has a great dynamic to it. Gone was the moody Batman, replaced with a real mentor to Robin in Dick , these stories were fresh and vibrant. I’m mourning the loss of Secret Six, that is a book that had excellent writing and used its characters in an original and thought provoking way. Power Girl, The Outsiders, Bat girl, Red Robin, JSA all gone. Other then the bat books I have nothing to read from this version of DC. We also have to mention the slap in the face that DC is giving to all of its readers who are not healthy white heterosexual males ( I am one but I’m still pissed at this point ). Yes they have kept Batwoman, Blue Beetle, Cyborg and Mr T but they have eliminated Oracle, the GLBT group in Secret Six, the Question, Vixen etc etc. The new DCU is squeaky clean middle America for the most part now.  I’m sure that the relaunch will attract new readers for the curiosity factor but it will loose steam quickly. Does anyone expect a full run on JLA by Lee? Hell we have been waiting for All Star Batman #11 since 2009.

DC has gone out of their way to alienate the loyal long time reader like me for a quick infusion of fly by night new readers. This is a disaster waiting to happen.
