DC’s New Reboot: Top 10 Comments

DC RelaunchReboot, relaunch, retcon.

The comics industry is full of fun words that mean the same thing: sales tool.

In case you've been living in a house with a mortgage and haven't heard the news yet, DC Comics is taking their entire comic book universe back to some sort of beginning and starting all over again.

It's a great strategy because I think we all know hundreds of fans that have been avoiding comic books because of how high the issue #'s are.

And as part of the same announcement, DC's switching to same day digital release of their printed comics, so I don't have to rush to the comic book store.

Naturally, everyone's talking about this bold move and not just on Twitter and Facebook. Here's a rundown of the Top 10 Things That People Are Saying about DC's new initiatives:

10. Finally! A reboot that changes everything forever! ZOMG!

9. Now I can bitch about DC's titles on the same device I read them on!

8. Old fans angry; new fans non-existent

7. Good news: 52 new #1's! Also, bad news

6. Fingers crossed: One more Metamorpho relaunch?

5. Ultra The Multi-Alien Cosplayers

4. This is sure to increase the value of my copy of Psyba-Rats #1

3. "Remember, you are bidding on a copy Batman #1, the first appearance of Batman. I don't know much about comics, but this is a #1."

2. Question for Swamp Thing: "Are you glad you left Vertigo?"

And the #1 thing people are saying about DC's bold new initiatives?

1. My time machine's working. I just landed in 1993!
