I am very wary of this reboot. I'm a reader because of a reboot of sorts. Death of Superman was my first comic I ever purchased. It was done out of curiosity and the big media storm. I walked into a comic book store for the first time and picked up the polybagged issue. I enjoyed it and was surprised there was a whole story leading up to it. So I bought those...and then some trades. I saw an X-Men comic there with art by some guy named Jim Lee. That looked cool too so I got it. Then I picked up the new Green Lantern with Kyle Rayner and that was awesome. Before I knew it, I was a huge comic book fan.
I read all the titles, moved over to Marvel then to all the independent titles. I was exactly what DC hoped for. A new reader.
Then they brought back Hal Jordan. And Ollie. And Barry. And suddenly my DC universe was taken from me and given back to the Silver Age.
And now with this new new reboot, apparently Young Justice never happened. And Stephanie Brown is gone. So you know what? I'm done for now. This is now someone's else's DC universe. They got my money and now they scaled back all the characters I fell in love with in the first place. I guess they don't need me anymore. There's new readers to grab.
This is what I hate about the constant reboots. I'm all for change, growth, evolution. But treating the dc universe like an etch-a-sketch really kills reader loyalty.
