and the original author says:

“I tend to take this latest development as a kind of eager confirmation that they are still apparently dependent on ideas that I had 25 years ago.”

of course, we already knew that he has a bone to pick with the comic book industry on a whole and DC in particular, so it’s no surprise that he’s not rainbows and sunshine about the situation.  My opinion of course, is that this may be one of the worst things, or the best things, to ever happen to DC.  They seem to be struggling to find a clear direction to go in with their properties, something that Marvel/Disney seems to be doing damn well.
