"There were several problems at DC at the time. Sales were bad (they're bad now but the entire industry sales are bad) and Marvel readers wouldn't be caught dead reading DC comics. I felt, as did many, that although DC fans understood the multiple Earths perfectly and without trouble, it was a problem to attract new readers and possibly a sign of a DC problem for the Marvel zombies. By simplifying the DC universe I believed we could attract new readers, which we did. Crisis was one of the first DC Comics (Titans being the other) that Marvel readers would check out."

“Some really good people are working on Before Watchmen and it saddens me to see that. I won’t be supporting it in any way. I just can’t. And in all honesty — I can’t help but feel a little bit less for every creator who works on these books. Have you no decency?” -- Erik Larsen

"While writing Green Lantern I received a letter from a fan asking about a mixup in DC continuity. In my reply I said, “One day we (meaning the DC editorial we) will probably straighten up what is in the DC Universe ... and what is outside.” At this point in its history DC Comics had Earth-One, Earth-Two, Earth-Three, Earth-B, etc. There were super-heroes on each Earth and though old-time readers had no problem understanding DC continuity, it proved off-putting to new readers who suddenly discovered there was not one but three Supermans, Wonder Womans, Batmans, etc."

And Jason 1.0

Saw some original art from this issue online and realisd I'd always meant to share the issue. It's a minor story in many ways, Doug Moench writing the first of a sort of two part story which isn't major or "important", but to share Don Newton pencils with Alfredo Alcala inks and Adrienne Roy colours, is always a pleasure.

Men working for the man he was after chased him.

That man, atop the Monument, took his call.

Batman accused him of orchestrating the end of the world through the works of Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, and the Mad Hatter.

He said that those were only a lesson.

" I was showing you the three most likely ways the world would end.

" Cataclysm.

" Plague.

" Solipsism.

" Those are the ways the world would have ended, in a year, maybe five, if it wasn't ending here now. Tonight. In a fourth way. My way. "

He aimed his sniper rifle at Batman, who was closing in.

He asked what it was that'd pointed the way to him.

" ..

" I found a ' daemon. ' "

He pulled the trigger, shooting Batman's cycle out from under him.

He, Ra's al Ghul, watched Batman and the cycle's wreckage fly through the air.

He looked down on his work. )
