Where We Stand
A friend of mine recently mentioned that DC has been -- loosely paraphrased -- "in a slump." Basically he told me that DC has been pretty awful these past few years.
As the DC fan I am, I took some exception to that. Sure, I know as well as the next guy that DC continually trails in sales behind Marvel. But I just don't think that that means it's not putting out good stuff. Yes, the past few years have supplied us with some very poor DC comics/events. But consider some of the brilliant things that have come out of the past few years:
- The new Blue Beetle
- The new Booster Gold
- The Sinestro Corps War
- Jonah Hex
- Secret Six
Friends: can you name any other brilliantly amazing things that DC has put out in the past five years or so? I could probably name another dozen brilliant projects -- stories or series that are the equal of anything DC's distinguished rival produces.
