DC's return of letter pages is unlikely to be worth anyone's time

DC is bringing back letter pages for readers, but I don't think there's reason to celebrate even that much: some people might very much want to have a negative say about the disaster they've become story-wise since Identity Crisis, and even the relentless crossovers, to say nothing of the mess Teen Titans has been for years now, and why do I get the feeling that they won't allow anyone to have their say about what they feel has gone wrong?

I think there's only one out of twenty chances they'll allow any criticism of their direction to find its way into these pages, and even that's slim. Even if they reduce their prices (along with at least 2 pages of story, as they've said), I don't think it's going to work for them long term. If the stories aren't any good, few will even care to write and say what they think, especially if they won't allow their opinions to shine through.

Via Comics Worth Reading.

I thought they'd go for censorship.

I used to enjoy reading the letters pages of the comics I collected back in the day; back then, the comments of both the readers and the people involved with the comic books was civil, even if they disagreed on something.
Ain't so anymore, I've read some truly horrid things at the DC website, things that the people who are writing them would never actually say if they were face-to-face with the people instead of at a computer miles away from them.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
