UPDATE: I am updating this post with a few links that have appeared since this issue dropped. I am sorry if it seems I am flogging a dead horse but this is an issue at DC that has really frustrated me lately so I’ve been keeping tabs on it pretty closely.
First off there is the Eric Wallace interview at Comic Book Resources where he defense the decision to kill off the Atom. Second, Greg McElhatton, also at CBR, review this book and give zero stars ( a rating I didn’t think was even possible). Finally there is a new fantastic article at Bleeding Cool titled The New Apartheid Of DC Comics, by Ryan Mullenix. This article presents itself as a follow up on the Chris Sim’s article mentioned below in this post.
The Original Article:
I was looking forward to this book, being impressed with Final Crisis: Ink. And then they killed Ryan. How timely Chris Sims article now reads. This is going to be brief because I really don’t have much to say other that I am just sad. This casts another dark shadow on comic books. In what was a really great week for DC comics, it breaks my heart that they still found a way to chip at another layer of this fan’s love of comic books. This isn’t fun and I am left weary.
P.S. don’t come around here talking about Eric Wallace being a black man. It just makes things worse.
