>>79827158 People just blame him for everything since he's the only higher up people know of. Harras doesn't speak about stuff and Lee is known more for his art, and we don't know how much pressure comes from above Didio and Lee.
>>79827309 Yes, a group of people from tumblr complained to Seeley about a page where Dick was naked because they thought he was getting molested and they hate Grayson in general And they were actually from tumblr so /co/messed were right to complain about tumblr this time
>>79827309 Yeah, sort of. Some Dickstans got hardcore triggered by Grayson's nude exam in #13 and went after Seeley hard on Twitter for "condoning sexual abuse". It was really nasty. Seeley said he almost deleted his Twitter.
And last week people screamed at him for not writing Cass badass enough in BARE. It's kinda annoying how people go at him sometimes, especially since Seeley is a decidedly non-assholish writer.
>>79827545 Cass fans are so touchy. You'd think after exposure to genuinely bad writing they would have learned to lower their standards a little but every time she gets hit or gets a bit of assistance it's a fucking war crime.
>>79827333 People also believe he hates Dick Grayson because he wanted to kill off Nightwing one time, but it was more because Didio thought it would make big waves and felt NW was a redundant character.
I'm glad Dick is still around, but Didio never hated him I don't think.
>>79828095 people were very annoyed at New 52 so they thought they could grab some pageviews by shitting on DC at every turn, and eventually it became their shtick even well after DC meme hate died down
Same anon, I didn't read DC at the time (got back on board with Dickbats which was awesome) but from what I heard/glimpsed, yeah, I don't think he was wrong either. Glad Dick got to go on to other things but yeah.
>>79827158 When he first took over, DC seemed to take a turn for the grimdark; Identity Crisis, Countdown, the constant wanking of Deathstroke... Didn't help that he'd never done any work in comics before (closest he got was overseeing Beast Machines, and any Transformer fan will tell you that that show wasted a lot of its potential).
Personally, I stopped hating him when I read his Metal Men story in Wednesday Comics - that was some good shit.
>>79827773 I've begun to lose interest in that counter since the creators have refused to set up a counter for Marvel as well... despite all the Secret Wars delays, Slott's Twitter-stalking and Alonso sticking his foot in his mouth on a regular basis...
>>79829385 >Not satisfied with the recent announcement that Stephanie Brown will debut as Nightwing in the digital-first Smallville Season 11, hopeful fans of the superheroine are mounting a campaign to convince DC Comics to reintroduce the former Robin and Batgirl into its main universe. Because of fucking digital comic that isn't placed in main DC universe?
>>79829348 >Waffles for Stephanie A super fan organised a campaign that her fans would send waffle mix to DC, people from like Dcwomenkickingass, Outhousers etc publicised the campaign and a bunch of people said they'd do it, when it came to the day DC only received like 10 waffles in the mail.
If I remember correctly the guy that organised it claimed DC were lying about the low number due to how many people that would said they were going to do it over the internet.
>>79827158 >>79828807 THIS. Dan Didio was responsible for all of the major stylistic changes in the early 00's. As an old school Titans fan, I don't think I'll ever feel comfortable with his choices in revitalizing the franchise, or what he wanted to do with Dick Grayson.
That said, 52, Wednesday Comics, Plastic Man, SOLO, and more all came out while he was EiC. Word is he pushed Grayson really heavily. He wants the books to sell, I can't stay mad, really.
Honestly there was no point bringing them back with the reboot, at least this soon. Now it just seems retarded how many sidekicks are stuck in Gotham doing nothing of any importance while a lot of the DCU still hasn't been developed yet, or needs further developing.
There are plenty other B-list/C-list characters who DC could be working on putting out material for, who they've had for well before the 90s and didn't have to cling to the capetails of the Bat for what little fame they had.
>>79829925 Most of the info seems to have been deleted when CBR rebooted but,
>I started off asking him how many waffles he got and he said about ten,(I wouldn’t be shocked if he rounded down) so I said there doesn’t seem to be as much demand as it appeared. He told me “yeah, there isn’t really any ground swell support for the character”. I then asked about the planned Stephanie Brown appearance in Smallville and Didio’s reaction was “They never should have done that.” He felt pretty strongly about it, emphasising it three times http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/08/28/talking-to-dan-didio-about-stephanie-brown-and-rob-liefeld/
It was fun looking this crap up I'd forgotten how pissed non Babs Batgirl fans were in the 1st years of the New 52.
>>79831319 I'm not a huge Steph- or Cassfag, but un-fucking Barbara's legs and turning her into Batgirl again is such a baffling decision to me to this very day. Oracle was such a great concept. Were there really that many people that she was THE Batgirl for and had to be?
>>79832097 Oh yeah she's definitely boring as Batgirl. She had the misfortune of being Batgirl forever ago and having maybe 2-3 readable Batgirl stories before New 52. Kinda like Dick as Robin. But unfortunately she's Batgirl in literally every media adaptation, before or after New 52, so no wonder they'd want her back in the costume.
