Funny books don't sell[edit]

Can we have the link for Didio's quote on that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cubzrule (talkcontribs) 18:27, 23 April 2007


Opinions in this section need to be sourced or removed! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 13:39, 18 May 2007 It's been removed. It's been several months since anything's been done about this. If somebody wants to add it back, include good sources. Ccm043 23:50, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Forum posts are not good sources. Maybe if IGN or another website had an article on critism that could work, but posting some individual's opinion is not an authoritative source. I'm also not sure about the second website. Ccm043 22:32, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

    • However, it is true that many fans *are* hating the recent direction that Dan Didio has sent DC. Plus the fact that sales seem to be going down... You do know how hard it is to find sources about this stuff that aren't Forum Posts, right?

I realize that. Unfortunately, unless somebody writes an article on fan views, there are no really good sources for these claims. I know that some recent comics reviews on IGN criticize DC in general for their crossover tactics, but nothing that criticizes Didio himself. Ccm043 20:31, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

However, this:

"Also, many of his decisions in the mega-crossovers of DC have also caused much criticism. Subsequently, due to the failure of Infinite Crisis(Which many regected concepts, like the DC Multiverse and hated characters, like Jason Todd, were revived), many fans have left reading DC, and his attempt to compare Kon'el's death to Spock's in Wrath of Kahn have called insulting. Many fans point to Didio taking over DC as a jump the shark moment for the entire company."

violates Wikipedia's POV policy. Failure is in the eye of the beholder. Not everybody hates Jason Todd or the idea of the Multiverse. What are the sources for saying that many people (and what do you mean by many?) have stopped reading DC or that they think this was a jump the shark moment?

If anybody wants to post something in the criticism section, it needs proper sources. It cannot violate POV, and it cannot use weasel words. What would be a good source for criticism? Take the Woman in Refrigerators concept. A few people in random forums criticizing how Spoiler died is not cause to mention this criticism. However, some people created a prominent website that openly criticized this practice and similar ones. If you can find a prominent website that conforms to Wikipedia standards and criticizes Didio, then you can include it. Ccm043 23:47, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Can somebody explain how criticism from fans would cause DC to kill off Superboy instead of Nightwing? Isn't this something that's kept under wraps? If somebody can explain how this is possible you can put the Nightwing information back. And please site the source that says that it was Didio's decision. Bart Allen's death is fine, but it needs a citation. As for the last paragraph, who are these "some people?" Do they have a web site? Are they mentioned in some sort of article? It seems like a bit of a stretch to quote Didio saying that he doesn't like Slobo to saying that he doesn't like "fun" comics. Ccm043 18:54, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Dan didio.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Dan didio.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
