EDITOR’S NOTES: Not to be outdone, DC attempts to trump Marvel with their own re-boot beginning June 2015 when DIVERGENCE begins with 24 new title launches. Wow! The New 52 didn’t last two long, did it? Personally, I’m way beyond the point of saturation with super-hero titles and have no stomach to digest the massive pile of books that will encompass both Marvel’s SECRET WARS and DC’s DIVERGENCE events. Perhaps I can find another writer with a keen interest in reviewing all these titles and post their articles here. I would like to provide our BC readers some commentary on these books. I just know it’s not going to come from me.
