This morning we mentioned that DC Comics was down over $2 million on planned revenue/expenditure for 2014/2015. Here’s where the other shoe gets dropped. I understand from a number of senior sources that DC editorial have been told to “stop Batgirling” and go back to “meat and potatoes”.
This doesn’t send the most confident message considering it was a few months ago that creators were told the opposite. From the fans perspective, it’s super disappointing news to hear, given that the new direction Batgirl took, and encouraged others to follow, was a total breath of fresh air from DC.
Over the past while, it feels like the company is spinning in circles and struggling to find their groove. Convergence was, in my opinion, not good and relied on old or convoluted storylines.
