Finishing it in Pen

So I haven't talked much about the very bad comics being put out by DC for a while. Just don't see much point. The people that like it are so convinced that they like it (sometimes as a reaction to the people that don't like it) that they're not going to look at it critically, and the last thing I need is to slap high five with the rest of our pathetic little world. BUT, I was just browsing through Newsarama's interview with the great Dave Gibbons whereupon he said the following:

There were certain things that DC wanted to have happen, so it was a question of coming up with a framework that accommodated everything and then fleshing out the details. Things were crowded and intricate, and it often felt like compiling a crossword puzzle!

Which gives me the opportunity to say, "And reading their editorially-driven crossover books is about as fun as reading a finished crossword puzzle."

Seriously, who sits around thinking, "Hey, let's dictate to Dave Gibbons what he should do. Yes, I understand that he is at least doubly as talented as we are, even more so if you take out some of Greg's works, but hell, let's make him accomplish things to further OUR stories, while forcing him to compromise his best instincts. Yeah, that sounds brilliant!"?
