Is DC becoming Marvel-lite?
It appears that even The Flash may end up being relaunched, following issue #230 of its own second volume, although the info for this issue by contrast does not seem to mention or confirm if that's going to be so. What I did notice, however, was that the February solicits they offer on their website do not include the Scarlet Speedster's own series.
I'm going to be quite honest, but, when it comes to that, while relaunching, let alone restoration of a specific numbering, may be only a minor nitpick, I find the way that DC seems to be imitating some of the most needless sales stunt tactics Marvel took in the past few years to be quite irksome.
And while a return to more optimistic viewpoints for their comics is quite welcome, ditto Mark Waid's returning to write the Flash's adventures, as they say is now the case, the way that they're going about it with sales stunts attached most certainly isn't.
For the record, I noticed that Gotham Knights and Gotham Central are certainly on the kill list at DC. In regards to the latter, I have nothing to say, but when it comes to the former, I didn't find it all that bad, seeing that that's where a lot of the Gotham cast was more likely to turn up, so that's certainly a shame if it's ending.
