Re: “'52' equals zero

Wow. Way to celebrate Free Comic Book Day coming up this Saturday, Mr. Berlatsky. Did Dan DiDio kill your dog or something? It would have been nice if you had used your space in the Reader to point out some comics you enjoy or would recommend to comics enthusiasts; instead you fill this column with unrelenting negativity and tired, comics reader-as-mouth breather fanboy canards. There are plenty of great new books containing innovative storytelling and gorgeous artwork in the New 52 for the curious reader to try out. The fact that you call out two of the best (both critically and commercially) as examples of what you find wrong with the New 52 (Batman, Animal Man) forces me to question any expertise you might have in this matter. Anyone not drowned by the ocean of bile contained in this column should visit their local comic book store this Saturday, pick up some free comics, and help celebrate this fine literary tradition. Might I suggest G-Mart Comics at 2641 North Kedzie Avenue Chicago, IL 60647 between 11AM and 7 PM? Visit us and you can get some recommendations from yours truly. And you are welcome to join us there as well, Mr. Berlatsky; perhaps we can help change your mind:)
