what are the most concerning offenders?
This question was in response to an answer I had about the Joker’s New 52 looks, where I said:
"Much of New 52’s direction and character designs completely baffle me. The one in your question is one of the least concerning offenders"
Honestly I’m not sure how much I want to dig in to this, I try to keep the blog relatively objective. But I think there are certain opinions that are almost unanimous in the comic community about the New 52.
Cancelling books that are widely successful both critically and financially before they reach their intentional conclusion.
Spurning many of their artists and writers who have quit in droves.
Making their diverse characters LESS diverse.
And of course insane general policy and statements like that -none- of their heroes are married, including a literal King and Queen, though that is just one example of many.
I am not telling my readers not to enjoy DC, or even that they are wrong to enjoy the New 52. Not at all. But I think there have been some extreme missteps in this entire reboot.
