They look a lot better than the kind of sterile ones that there released previously,

And Fox shows the media's usual speed when it comes to reporting on comics,
http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2012/01/fox-affiliate-targets-dc-for-using-sex-and-violence-to-sell/

Note, the complaints aren't about the sexism in both books, they're about the sexual content.

The violence and sexual content in books that are rated for a teenage audience.

Pretty much this is the same deal as people complaining about GTA being harmful for kids, when they're rated for people 18 plus. *grumble* Or this,


Look, just because they're comics, doesn't mean that they're automatically for kids, despite where the characters originated.

EDIT: OH! And the network used a fanmade Superman cover and a pre-reboot Wonder Woman cover while talking about the New 52 comics! All the better!

Related comics (manga, whatever else) automatically with kids is a common problem around the world. =_=

Same with videogames and animation. It's annoying as hell.

I just heard that in US Red Hood and Outlaws is rated T+ and no kids under 16 should be allowed to get it...So isn't the reporter showing kids that book doing something illegal? O_o

Look, just because they're comics, doesn't mean that they're automatically for kids, despite where the characters originated.

If the characters had originated in kids' entertainment 70 years ago and now were just used in adult entertainment, that would be one thing, but the characters are still heavily marketed to children. Even before they can read, they know who Batman and Spider-Man are and probably own something with their images. It's not unreasonable to think there's something wrong when the major comic companies are doing that, but the most heavily promoted and easily available comic books featuring those characters aren't kid-friendly.

Good point. Similar to the "our characters are iconic! Hey now, copyright is SACRED" doublethink?

But these people are complaining specificly about stories, that clearly are not marketed towards children and if someone is so stupid, to buy their kids something rated 16+, without even reading it and expecting childfriendly adventure, then theres problem with him/her.

I see Marvel superheroes like Transformers. The franchise is just too big, to be judged as solely for kids or adults, its for both (which doesnt excuse Bayformers, which were clearly marketed towards children and the "mature" elements were there just for the sake of it and were extremely imature).

I doubt it. They look like mockups someone's thrown together. Note that we've already had that Superman cover and Wonder Woman cover published already, and I think the same applies to the Green Lantern one. Unfamiliar with the Batman one, which could be a variant..

But these're mostly old covers.

Everything Fox news says is a lie...even when it's the truth. I tune out when I hear them... Surprisingly, Good Day LA surprisingly liberal

well to be fair, this is an affiliate, the Washington affiliate, not the Fox News Channel, so editorial content could/would be different.

Roger Ailes recently decided to try to make FNC more centrist. I think he is not trying hard... Not watching anything but Fox News Watch (weekly) so I have no idea. (My husband works for Premiere Radio... much of this isn't my fault!)

Let's put it this way. Having a pundit come out on the position that perhaps abortion should be legal in the case of rape or incest would make FNC more centrist than it is currently.

I like this comment from CBR:

"Apparently Fox news doesn’t watch what Fox TV puts on the air—sex and violence galore, though much more for the violence as a substitute for sex. Very healthy…"

And when was the last time Fox had ANY programming for kids? The only cartoons they show are Family Guy and The Simpsons. I don't care t to talk about politics but they couldn't be anymore hypocritical.

A few years ago Fox News threatened to sue The Simpsons. That's the level of awareness and common sense we're talking here.

So bland....even worse now... this is why I dislike that companies (like DC in this case) nowadays prefer to use external graphic designers who will produce such sterile and unrelated logos for products..rather than having people on board, co-working with the guys creating the comics.

In this case, people working on the comics, making their own logo.

I already had the same problem with these New 52 series' logo...but now the DC logo follows the same pattern of "hi-tech design modern logo", and even worse, looks completely unrelated to the material. There's no synchronization or harmony between the books/cover art/content and and the series' logo or the DC ones...

(ps: Yes, I'm a graphic designer)
(ps2: yes, I can recognize graphic designers and myself included often work on our side of things, making things pleasant visually/design without thinking about a correlation, a link if you will among product and representation/logo)

Except when have DC's logo ever had any bearing on the material.

The Bullet? The Swirl? Neither of them hints at any connection to superheroes ot comics as a whole.
