Uhg. The redesigns... I believe more women and gay men should work in the comic book industry if only to fix everyone's clothes. I'm talking costumes and civies.

It's a little busy, but I actually kinda like Supergirl's new design.

I don't get DC right now, I mean I've always been Marvel over DC other than Batman and the animated interpretations.
But there are just so many business decisions that they've made in the past that makes me wonder what they were thinking.

Continuity in comics is a funny thing and as DC has proven to themselves over and over, you can't make a cohesive timeline over such a huge franchise with so many individual, unrelated projects.
But they keep trying to reboot and it never works. There was even a point around the early 2000's where they wanted all the characters to have a uniform look across titles. That means that no matter the artist, Batman would always have to look a certain way.
Naturally alot of artists had a problem with that, considering, you know, they're not animators who need to make a character look consistant.

I'll admit, the premise of Infinite Crisis was clever and it had never been done before. It basically came about after the many fan questions which arose whenever two characters crossed over or why a character acted differently between one comic and the next.
The answer being that they're stories from various parts of a multiverse is a nice simple explaination.

Why not just leave it at that?

Their reasoning is that they want to attract new readers, not confuse them with all this pre-existing continuity.
What they fail to understand is that most of these characters are famous, they don't need introduction.

I've started reading comics at random points and followed it just fine. It's sort of like Doctor Who, if you know the basic premise, everything else should make sense.

this is weird, DC make them look like all goes to the same designer, but every hero have is personality and is origin make the costume the same is like take of the individuality of every character. is a big mistake make DC comics like Marvel from the 90's the fans of DC are fan because they are different from marvel. why Cyborg have a armor is like war machine? and also they look young, if batman is so young the 3 other robins have 18 - 15 and 12 years, in one year they going to do a massive one more day to ''fix'' a big mistake? hope i make a mistake and the idea works and they won more fans and help the comic business, but if this fail the could hurt it more.

Well that's odd. Things in the comic book art world should be in this century.

I'm STILL upset over Sirens being cancled, as well as Harley's new outfit for Suicide Squad and Ivy being in the Birds of Prey...

Only good thing to come out of this will be Batwoman ongoing and Action Comics if it is indeed as they said "Superman's Year One."

We'll vote with our dollars. I'm not buying most of it except for the new Action #1 which looks kind of interesting, mostly because I like Rags Morales' stuff. Wonder Woman looks they were planning on that horrid pilot they shot taking off.

I'm disappointed in Jim Lee, he's my favorite artist but his designs are so lazy. All he did was add a bunch of lines to they're costumes, and the only one it actually looks alright on is Batman. Even then, it looks whatever. It's a reboot, they should've gone all in with the redesigns.
EddiePerkins Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Professional General Artist
Yeah. It's one of the worst decisions I've seen in a long time. They claim they're trying to attract the general public by booting the old continuity but the general public isn't going to be interested in superheros in unrecognizable costumes.

Well, not all of the revamps are like that. The worst I've seen is the Teen Titans- ohmygod they look horrible. Especially Robin and Wondergirl. Superman isn't really all that bad, and I haven't seen a major change to Batman (though to be fair, Batman's outfit has changed repeatedly over the years anyway so no big)

I'm just thankful that they're not making a themed restaurant.
