A Plague On Both Your Houses
Since I couldn’t resist the urge to post something about Disney’s acquisition of Marvel, I suppose it’s only fair that I feel compelled to mention something about Warner Bros. retooling DC Comics and forming DC Entertainment, notably precipitating the stepping-down of Paul Levitz. I think Kurt Busiek actually sums it all up the best in this post. And that title up there is really just in jest. Without going into too much detail, I think that if managed correctly, in the sort of “hands-off-allowed-to-fail-R&D-model” that is being discussed, then both Marvel and DC could benefit from the relationship(s).
