How DC planned the death of Spoiler

AWRF2011: Graphic Novels, Comics and Cartoons from Auckland Writers & Readers Fest on Vimeo.


In this video I found on Vimeo, Dylan Horrocks relates how DC's editorial planned and mandated the death of Stephanie Brown, aka Spoiler in 2004, at the Auckland Writers & Readers Festival in New Zealand; it all comes up around 31:00 into the tape. He says it was a very depressing time for him.

Interestingly, he also confirms something many conservatives may have voiced concern over: that the industry is a far more liberal place than need be.

Not really surprised. DC has been all about shock value for a number of years as it plays catch-up to Marvel.

BTW, speaking of horrid editorial-driven events, the Super-marriage is now toast:

And they're having a "five years ago" comic with Clark in a S tee, jeans, and a cape.

Yep, done with the New Coke DCU before it even starts...

Yeah, I just found out about the canning of the Super-marriage today. It's a real shame, but no surprise their current staff would do that. I'll try to write a topic about it tomorrow.

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.
