A couple days ago, I read this article on Slate about DC Comics and Marvel. It’s about the similarities and differences between the companies and how over the decades they have taken swings at each other. As a comic book fan, you quickly get a chuckle from reading the article. Especially the bit about how Marvel publishes so many multiple versions of its titles that you don’t you don’t know what’s going on sometimes. The best examples are the multiple X-Men titles (X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, New X-Men, Xtreme X-Men and etc.). Then there’s the less funny part about DC alienating creators.
