I remember when DC did Crisis On Infinite Earths so they could get rid of the multiverse because they didn’t know how to do imprints. Today DC is breaking out tons of imprints so they can continue to not give kids proper superhero comics. Just the graphic novels of DC Zoom. Now we have Wonder Comics, a teen-focused imprint that Brian Michael Bendis is spearheading (possibly because this is another version of Marvel’s Ultimate universe and Bendis was the only one who got it right). No Wonder Woman but we are getting the Wonder Twins among other stories, and given how comic writers today feel about Super Friends I’m not getting my hopes up.

So now we have the main DC Universe, the DC Zoom graphic novels for kids because they don’t want to give kids ongoing comics like when the creators were kids (and how they got into comics), DC Ink for….the same audience as Black Label? I think? Then there’s Vertigo, mature creepy sci-fi and fantasy stuff, and now the teen-based Wonder Comics. So everyone except kids are getting an ongoing series unless you bring Earth-One in…this is worse than the confusion DC tried to avoid in the 80s. Which I would accept if it meant Bendis was being pulled off the Superman titles but I don’t think that’s happening. What is going on at DC Comics these days?

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)
