It’s that time again…okay, it’s actually a day after that time again, but still – the sentiment is the same.
It’s time to hit us with your questions for DC Universe Executive Editor Dan DiDio. We’re a week along after Wonder and Mega Con, and hey – you may want to hit him with some clarifications on the Batman titles, the creators, or more. Not only that, but there’s plenty of stuff happening in the DCU that begs for questions to be asked, let alone the topics that are bubbling through the industry.
So what are you looking to have answered? Ask away below.
Some notes on how to get your question selected:
1) Make sure it’s something Dan can answer. As he’s said many times, he’s not out to spoil stories (and yes, we do get questions asking about the status quo after Blackest Night), and he is chiefly concerned and tasked with making sure the content of the books is there, month-in, month-out. He can’t talk officially about collections or larger DC policy or business topics. And if you’re wondering, yes, he does wish comics were cheaper too – and that’s about the extent he can go into it.
2) Be objective – or as objective as you can. Dial down the sense of entitlement and fan outrage as best as you can. Yes, we all feel it, but pull it back. Along those lines, don’t ask a question which makes the subject have to agree with your assessment of a project in order to answer. An example: “Given the utter failure on every level of _____, do you think that…?”
3) Don’t do the “Have you stopped beating your wife” type questions.
4) You may want to review the last couple of installments, as we’ve gotten questions from angry fans that are repeats of things Dan has already talked about.
Other than that, have at it. We'll have the answers up next Friday.
