Once again proving they can't tell a story, DC Comics is going to reboot Superman and Batman again. Really? Another round of origin stories? Wow, how completely dull and unoriginal. Here's the scoop from The Source:
That major publishing event we mentioned earlier today? Well, here it is.
Original stories featuring Batman and Superman in graphic novel form from the biggest creators out there. But these aren’t one-offs. We’re talking ongoing series of OGNs in a new continuity, on a new Earth.
Starting next year, DC Comics will unveil SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE and BATMAN: EARTH ONE, two graphic novels spotlighting the most powerful heroes of the DC Universe, with their first years and earliest moments retold in a standalone, original graphic novel format, on a new earth with an all-new continuity.Return to Smallville and experience the journey of Earth’s greatest adopted son, as he grows from boy to Superman in SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE by J. Michael Straczynski and artist Shane Davis.
Watch from the darkest corners of Crime Alley as a young boy is struck by unbelievable tragedy that will forge the greatest crime-fighter to ever stalk the rooftops of Gotham City in BATMAN: EARTH ONE, by writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank.
Zzzzzzzzzz... Oh, sorry, must have dozed off there.
My favorite part is how they call it a "major publishing event." Hilarious. And these multiple earths stories are the exact reason I don't read DC Comics and the definition of the word "sucks."
Sure, Marvel makes many mistakes but they continue to have some of the best stories in comics today and Civil War, love it or hate it, was the best idea to hit superhero comic books in many years.
Seriously, how can you not say, "Make mine Marvel!"
