    it's actually out of the ordinary when an event comic is good, they are in general slop thrown at the fan to get people to buy a bunch of comics and tie-ins. DC got lucky with the crisis trilogy, and even then people debate the actual quality of it.

      reality vampires and wishing machines and 4D robots fighting for reality and the nature of stories in general, I mean morrison is undeniably talented but it was too schizo for me

      Infinite Crisis was a good event. They had a clear clear two-to-three year, line-wide lead-up. The editors were more or less on the ball. There were plenty of bad story and plot decisions, characters acting out of character, and jobbing all around, but given its scope and success it was a good event.
      Also, Sinestro Corps War, if you want to count that.

            I mean yeah E2 Supes started off siding with them but you could see it never sat right with him to begin with, especially during the talk with Bruce about Dick, and the climax was him redeeming himself and stopping Prime.

            Prime also redeemed himself… it took some time but Secret Origins was like the only good story to come out of Death Metal.

            And while yeah Alex went off the deep end, a Luthor is a Luthor no matter what universe

              nah but the issue was they were all direct links to COIE who'd had their universes destroyed, and when alex opened that portal for them to live through you thought they were at peace, because they deserved a good ending
              then johns decided to make them antagonists, that wasn't right
              I mean COIE was so fricked up for earth 2, with wonder woman, huntress and robin all dying, not to mention prime losing literally everyone, at least you were satisfied prime and kal-l and alex luthor, son of lex of earth-3, got a happy ending
              but apparently not, they had to bring them back and character assassinate them

Also if you were stuck in a pocket dimension where all could watch was the universe you saved constantly fricking up you wouldn’t want to just sit idly by either, not to mention going fricking stir crazy from being in such cramp quarters

            If Risk losing one arm wasn't enough, they ripped off his other later one too. Dan Jurgens himself even joked it was like he was to become the Black Knight. Nobody seemed to bother using him after, so some like to theorize he died and was put out of his misery once the second arm went.

        Yes? Are you saying that they couldn't outsell a Creature From the Black Lagoon comic? Cause Dark Horse had a Creature From the Black Lagoon comic with Art Adams doing the art, and it got less orders than Detective, Flash, and Green Arrow (Harley didn't have a comic yet in August 1993)

        https://comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/1993/1993-08Diamond.html

        rank 12: Detective Comics #667 (in fairness this was during Knightfall, but on the other hand aren't they doing an event right now?)
        rank 136: Flash #82
        rank 209: Green Arrow #79
        rank 271: Creature From the Black Lagoon (Dark Horse's version)

        The only person's name I recognize on Skybound's Creature From the Black Lagoon is Ram V, and you're telling me the second issue of that is outperforming every DC title? Holy shit, DC has serious problems

    How many more times do Batman and Superman need to be at the center of it?

    How many more times does the universe or earth need to be at stake?

    DC Events suck cause its the same shit time and time again with no break.

    War of the Realms was good, King in Black was good, civil war was great, and Contest of Champions was good. Why?

    Because they all centered around different parts of the Marvel universe.
