DC Forever Evil
July 17, 2013 § Leave a comment
With all the enthusiasm for the San Diego Comic Con (which I am sadly not attending) publishers are teasing a lot of the products they’ll “reveal” at the con. Forever Evil is the Big Event that DC Comics is starting to tease… and I don’t care.
Yes, I’m one of those comic book readers who really hates big cross-over event things; unfortunately for me, cross-over events have become the bread and butter for the Big Two (ie, DC and Marvel, the two companies whose movie adaptations you’ve probably seen). X-Cutioner’s Song, an X-Men cross-over event, is why I quit comics back when puberty hit. Big Events ask you to drop a whole lot of coin to read about characters you don’t really care about. (If you did care about those characters, you’d already be reading their books.)
DC Comics’ current Big Event, Trinity War, is already enough to make me quit the New 52. Actually, other than Batman, I’ve already quit the New 52. Looks like I’ll be reading those new Vertigo titles instead.
