Is Tom Taylor Planning to Kill the DC Universe?

Posted by December 12, 2018 Comment

Tom Taylor has been writing excessively brutal Injustice comics for DC Comics since 2013, but what if Taylor were allowed to apply his bloodthirsty pen to the regular DC Universe? That’s just what’s going to happen in the near future, according to Taylor himself. It started with Taylor’s response to Newsarama’s Chris Arrant, who asked comic creators to post a fact readers probably didn’t know about them. Taylor joked: “I’m not Tom King,” leading to a snarky response about King’s propensity to kill off characters in comics such as Heroes in Crisis.

But Taylor cast doubt on his own “I’m not Tom King” proclamation in his response, in which King hinted that fans who are “attached to characters” may want to avoid an unannounced project coming up after Taylor’s work in Batman Annual #3, which hit stores today.

So is Tom Taylor planning to kill the DC Universe? It certainly seems so. And it’s no surprise, considering Taylor’s motivation is explicitly to make comic book fans cry.

R.I.P., DC Universe.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
