I’m a huge fan of science-fiction, and my first love is Firefly, but there’s more to this geek than my coat of a brownish color. For example, I’m also an avid reader and collector of comic books. I have been since I was a little kid. My personal comics collection numbers in the thousands and I read dozens of titles regularly, both from the big publishers, DC and Marvel, and the smaller independent companies. I’ve often said that if my wife knew what my monthly comics budget really amounted to, I’d probably be in some very big trouble!
So, of course I was very interested in something that caught my eye last week online. In a January 3 post on the website Bleeding Cool, Rich Johnston reported that DC Comics admitted in a late-2015 blog post that fan protests on social media had, in fact, affected DC’s decisions on how to move forward with certain characters.
