For those who don’t follow comics, a major event occurred last week. DC Comics announced that starting in September, they will be relaunching their entire line, starting with new number issues of every title, and offering digital and print day-and-date releases for the entire line.
The company has stressed this isn’t a “reboot”. But it’s unclear what that means. Some character will have no origins. Some will not. Some parts of continuity will be maintained. Some won’t.
We’re not overly enthused about this event. Especially the change in Superman’s costume! But we are excited about the digital-day-date releases. That’s a long time coming. But we hope they will realize they will need to allow offline PC storage of digital titles, or it isn’t a true digital initiative. Exact details of the digital initiative haven’t been released, so we’re unsure if they’re following their current model or instituting a new one.
