Wow...it is WAAAAAY too early to begin thinking about another Crisis.

IGN: SDCC 07: DC Counts Final Crisis


    Today DC answered what fans everywhere have been asking (despite it being rather obvious)

    Issue 26 changes to "Countdown to Final Crisis". DC Executive Editor Dan DiDio mentioned that many of plot elements would become clearer while bigger questions and issues would arise.


More details are sure to come, but the fact that DC is invoking the word "Crisis" in conjunction with "Final" could mean that DC is about to just end it all, blow everything up, and start all over again from scratch. Not sure how well that would go over, but that'd be one way to sort out a lot of continuity issues.

Still, can't get over the fact that we just had a Crisis two years ago.

CBR live blogged from the DC panel today.

Of course, I would encourage everyone to get their SD news from the Beat (where I am now the official Helper Bee).

I think that's a profoundly huge logical leap, given that DC didn't do this with any of the last three Crises. (Crisis on Infinite Earths, Zero Hour: Crisis in Time, and Infinite Crisis all allowed selective changes to continuity, but none of them delivered a wholesale reboot.) Yeah, this is (allegedly) the FINAL Crisis, but I could have said the same of the last one (if it's infinite, how can it be followed by anything?).

But I may just be saying that because I remember the even more ridiculous assumption that House of M was supposed to reboot the Marvel Universe, of which there was even less indication.

DC's released this teaser image to give some hint of what's to come. I'm not really sure what it means though.

That image doesn't seem to tell us much, but it is still cool. Hawkman seems out of place, though, among the big guns.

I'm all for rebooting the DCU about every 25 years, as it seems like it would keep things fresh and not bogged down with continuity. However, it is Marvel that desperately needs to do this.

Fraction signing an exclusive makes me sad. Thank goodness there's an exception for Casanova.
