On the heels of yesterday’s surprising news that DC Comics plans to restart their entire line of comics in September, Dan DiDio has written an open letter to all fans on his Facebook page. The letter is there and reprinted in full below:
“Folks, as you wonder and wait for the new series announcements to unfold, I just wanted to let you know that we are spending an extraordinary amount of time and energy to reinvigorate our line of characters and bring the best books possible for the widest audience possible. Sorry if anyone is feeling disenfranchised, especially since that’s not the intent. Quite the opposite, we are trying to create a place and story where older fans can point for new fans to start, whether in periodical, graphic novel or digital. A place where everyone can share in the excitement of the DC Universe.
As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and there are a lot of great things that don’t need fixing. But we also saying that will not stand ideally by and let series run on inertia and let the industry fade around us. All of us here at DC love the form and the characters way too much for that.
Tomorrow we begin filling you in on all the excitement we have planned, plenty of real new to talk about and its time for everyone to join in the fun.
We at Pop Culture Zoo are looking forward to seeing some of the details tomorrow, which we will dutifully report to you on, and are eager to read these new number one issues ourselves in September!
