Default DC Reboot Protest at ComicCon

http://robot6.comicbookresources.com...t-dc-relaunch/

I'll say what I said in the comments: First World Problems.

Goodness...

I think we should protest the fact that they made Steve Urkel end up with Laura instead of Stefan. Come on, that's so wrong!

Further proof that comic fans can be the biggest babies in the world.

What do you expect them to protest at a comic book con?

The lack of women creators in superhero comics.
Treatment of minority characters in comics.
Rights for creators.

All things that are much more deserving of large gatherings.

This, for the love of God, this.

Hell, something like how superhero comics are rarely kid-friendly anymore or even the prices are both more viable issues of protest than the reboot in general.

This is just a grouping of Comic Book Guys being Comic Book Guys.

I wish I could say this is the stupidest thing I've seen at a geek-centric con, but its not.

If I was there, I'd sure as heck take some time out for that.

Hahahaha - awesome.

They need a slogan. Something catchy like "give a toot, don't reboot!"

Maybe have someone wearing the new Supes outfit holding a sign saying "can someone brief me on DCnU."

Good for them. Though it's not something I would do, it's a far better method of making your feelings known then bitching on an internet forum. Hopefully someone at DC will take the time to talk to some of the protesters.

All of those Teen Titan designs look like they were leftovers from the 90s Wildstrom era.

Goodness gracious, you know what these nifty guys 'n' gals need to do? Give a big old Romulan Salute to show their displeasure! There's nothing that will get corporate executives to take a consumer seriously quicker than being at a comic convention and snapping off a sign of solidarity!

It beats a Fred Phelps protest, at least.
