ALL-STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN THE BOY WONDER #5: Paul Levitz apparently thinks that DC’s publication of THE BOYS could do some theoretical harm to their core superhero business, or taint the icons, or something.
This makes me wonder what Paul made of THIS.
Since it is the ACTUAL icons.
The strangest thing is that, had Frank Miller been drawing this, I’d probably have found it amusing and satirical and maybe even a little funny. But with Jim Lee? Lee is THE mainstream superhero comic book artist, so it adds a layer of weight and Importance to it all that just absolutely demands it be taken Seriously, and, thus, renders any satire as stone-faced earnestness.
But, really, REALLY, Levitz cancelled THE BOYS and continues to publish this? Really?
What did you think?
