"Mutiny on the Bounty Part 2: Dan(Didio) on the Run"

Alright kiddies, eager to see how this all ends?
Good, because today's the day, Dan(Didio) gets it!!!!!!


-When last we left Dan Didio, he was running for his very life from the very heroes he ruined  Alone and scared, Dan runs into a very special person. A person, who might hold the key to Dan's salvation. .....

The End

And yes, in case you didn't catch it, that was Googum unofficially guest-starring as his man-crush, Nightcrawler. Take a bow Goo:)

And what's the end of a (sort of) movie, without the music for the credits. Take it away Sir Paul McCartney.....
Who doesn't love "Band on the Run"? And so appropriate too, don't you think?:)

Hey, I'd probably save DiDio. Maybe. If it got OMAC back. (Conversely, the dog helps nothing and no one.) And I rarely go out with my tail out anymore...

Rockin' the mic as always, man. But how much praise/blame should DiDio get for DC's current state? Some? Not most, surely. And aren't sales on the 52 still pretty...OK? Kind of? Even though the continuity is all iffy? No idea.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say the characters your using in the skit except Nightcrawler are the ones he's messed up. And Nightcrawler was also destroyed over at Marvel.?.

I have fell out with Scott Snyder and the Bat brother thing, so I dropped his Bat book. But Aquaman has been on point. the only complaint is that the last couple of issues dragged ass. And Manhunter is about to get his own Justice League team. That has to count for something.?.

@Goo, ha, ha, see I knew you'd enjoy that one, but possibly saving Didio just on the chance that he might bring back OMAC? Bad form bro-ham,bad form:(

Yeah I'd give him a pretty fair share of blame, and while there are others responsible as well, I'd say he's the driving force/captain of the ship, so, yeah he's to blame.

As for sales, yeah I guess they're still doing ok, which baffles the hell out of me. I mean, if old-school fans such as myself complain, and supposedly vote w/our wallets(which I do since I haven't bought a single DC or Marvel comic in over a month) then why aren't sales reflecting that supposed large drop in readership caused by said old time fans supposedly dropping most or all DC titles? IDK, and new time buyers can only account for so much of those sales, so what is exactly going on? Beats me, but the only time they'll be seeing a dime from me is, in the back trades and action figures.

@Omega, yeah pretty much. I mean some, like the Joker,were put in there randomly for effect, but yeah most of them have all been dicked over by Didio, and by extension DC over the last few years.

And you are correct, Marvel killed off Nightcrawler simply because they needed a "shocking death" to illustrate the dire nature of that whole Messiah X story-line. It was needless, and he'll eventually be brought back; they do eventually.
