Yesterday, DC promoted their Halloween event, er, I mean their "Multi-Faceted DC Comics Super-Villain Campaign" with a graphic clearly showing pre-Flashpoint costumes and characters. DC has had over a year to plan and promote the New 52, so why aren't they promoting their reimagined universe this holiday season? Is this a hint that DC isn't committed to the New 52, or just another example of a fractured company with no cohesive strategy?
Booster booster Russ Burlingame asks much the same question in his recent article for ComicBook.com, "Is DC Comics Running Away From Their Own New 52 Philosophy?"
With The Question appearing in both Justice League and Multiversity, though, one has to wonder whether Justice League writer Geoff Johns might have some designs on the Multiverse himself, especially given that Booster Gold saw an alternate-reality or future version of himself in the recent, Johns-penned Justice League International Annual #1. If that’s the same Question, as opposed to two worlds’ versions of a similar character like the Blue Beetle we see in Multiversity, it could raise some eyebrows–and some serious questions (no pun intended).
While none of DC's recent questionable behavior clearly indicates that we'll see Skeets, Michelle, and Rip Hunter anytime soon, we can at least keep hope alive.
