So over at Newsarama, there were polls and across the board, DC Comics walked away the clear leader with most of their competition not even registering in the second round of voting.
So this led me to wondering; is this a simple taking of the pulse of the comics fan or is it a signal to the comics industry that DC Comics, with its current crop of storylines and creators, are giving the people more of what they want or is it something more?
Now, I've made no secret that I believe that the Big Two of Marvel AND DC haven't been floating my boat with numerous crossovers and tie-ins that do nothing but squeeze your wallet and stymie the sensibilities.
So far, Blackest Night has done neither. For example, I didn't want to read Blackest Night: Titans so I didn't and was quickly brought up to date in the pages of Blackest Night.
It's choice and in the Newsarama poll, the readers chose and the overwhelming response was that they like what DC's doing.
So, my question is this: Was DC's sweep a simple case of "what's good" or was this a referendum to the comics industry that what DC is currently doing is simply better than what everyone else is producing?
