Re: Race + Comics: On Green Lanternís Near-Death Experience

Implying that the decision to do Batman 66 is somehow racist is so silly that it undercuts the otherwise-valid points that Garcia makes.

It also doesn't help his argument that DC killed off white Bruce Wayne for a while during the time when Nolan was making movies about him.

And while I am sympathetic to his other points, ultimately, the real problem here wasn't racism. The problem was, and is, a publisher that has been creatively bankrupt for years and thinks that repeatedly killing off characters to bring them back in a couple of years is the way to sustain sales. John was just slated to be the latest example until the blowback.
