It’s now just past 10:30PM. In less than 90 minutes, the DC Universe you have grown up with ceases to exist, replaced with Jim Lee’s updated costumes and a slew of on-goings that most don’t care about, as this week DC releases Flashpoint #5 and Justice League #1; the only two books being released this week, and the beginning of the DCnU.
I’ll be unable to make a midnight launch, sadly, but I wish I could. We’ve tried to stay open-minded about DCnU here, and I still will, but I’m eager to get my hands on the books to see just how I’ll feel about the changes.
There have already been some spoilers out about Flashpoint #5 that left a bad taste in my mouth; I won’t post them here, but you can find them. Either way, the end of an era in 90 minutes.
We’ll continue pushing our coverage of DCnU. Hoping to have reviews of both books later, but for now we’ll leave this here, with an open comment box. Leave us your thoughts, your comments, and let’s have a little web-based candle light vigil for great stories and great characters that have (hopefully, just for now) been pushed aside.
