Ow. I discovered, today, that in an imaginary world that matters to a limited few, DC Comics editor Dan DiDio has stuck a knife into the ribs of comic book writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis. I'm irrationally angry.
God (or somebody) knows, there are enough things to be angry about in actual worlds without obsessing over what happens in this
. I won't spoil the story by saying more than I just did, except for this:
Those of you who recall such things may remember how Alan Moore's Marvelman/Miracleman took a child's dream of flying and turned it into an adult horror story. I believe that this was done well.
The same group may recall what Ron Marz did to the continuity of another popular DC comic book protagonist. I believe that that kind of sucked.
I'll leave it to you to place what Dan DiDio has just done in this context. Feel free to comment (& post spoilers in comments) if you've already read "Countdown to Infinite Crisis," and have an opinion of it.
