DC Comics Trying to Buy Dynamite Entertainment?

Post by tony ingram on Tue Mar 18, 2014 6:12 pm

So claims Bleeding Cool, anyway. I really hope this isn't true, Dynamite have been putting out some great material, I'd hate to lose them.

Yeah, I don't want this to happen either. And what would they even be buying them for, anyway? Their character licenses? Couldn't they just swoop in and steal those from Dynamite anyway?

I doubt the licences are transferable, and the creator owned stuff is mostly by people who want nothing to do with DC, so that would cease. Basically, they'd be buying Vampirella and some used office equipment.

I got a little irritated last week at one of Rich Johnston's more than usually inaccurate "articles" and had a bit of a go at him over his standards of journalism (in mitigation, I'd had a trying day and a few beers). I don't think he's forgiven me.

A guy on Comic Book Resources "wrote" an article that was nothing more than a press release re-written as if it were his work, and I commented on that in the article's comment section. It was erased. Wonder why...

They seem to get quite touchy about being challenged. Rich claimed that Titan had been planning to buy "Panini' Doctor Who Monthly". When I pointed out that a) this was not actually true and b) Doctor Who Magazine hasn't been called Doctor Who Monthly for over thirty years, and when it was, it was a Marvel publication, he ignored the first point altogether and said the second was "clearly journalistic shorthand".

When Johnston is right, you hear about it (and, really, I attribute his being right as being analagous to that chimpanzee writing Shakespeare) and wrong, it's as if he never wrote anything at all.

As for DC buying Dynamite - doubtful but I am intrigued by a story where Jonah Hex could encounter the Lone Ranger or, the Green Hornet could encounter the Sandman - or, for that matter, Peter Cannon maybe being available again to DC. On the other hand, I've ignored Dynamite's other works for a few years now.

Dynamite don't own Cannon, they just licensed him for a time the same way DC did. There's no guarantee that licence would transfer over. In fact, given that Morisi was apparently quite unhappy with DC over their treatment of the character, I'd be surprised if his estate allowed it.
