Pop, I think it's the stupidest idea EVER.
Maybe one of these days people will buy a CLUE, and realise that spandex clad adventures were MADE FOR KIDS. It was sort of a great bonus that they were made well enough, that hip college kids could get into them.
But this is WHY the entire ****ing industry is in the shitter.
They abandoned the audience, and now we get the scraps of remaining adults who still read the books.
I'd like to kick the publishers in the nuts, and get them to realise that if they want to do this kind of slag, they need to make imprints like Vertigo, where they can do all the adult stories they want.
This industry is going to continue to lick ass though, until Quesada and his drug buddies are fired, and somebody replaces them who can MAKE SUPERHEROES COOL FOR ALL AGES.
It's like they don't even want to try and compete against all the kid fads. They'd rather indulge their twisted sexual fantasies, on characters they dreamed of ****ing, when they were teens. Now they're adults, and they still dream of ****ing these 'toons.
Joe Quesada needs to be drug out into the street and summarily executed.
