The comic book convention season began last weekend with Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon. Among the interesting news to come out of the con was Geoff Johns’, DC’s new Chief Creative Officer, response to a fan’s question about the potential for a crossover between DC and Marvel Comics.

Instead of the evasive non-answer these questions usually elicit, Johns said “When they stop telling people to rip up our books, we’ll talk.” This references a recent promotion by Marvel that allowed retailers to receive a limited edition comic for sending in 50 stripped covers from DC comics.

I’m not sure if this promotion has sold any additional books for Marvel, but it certainly seems to have gotten DC’s attention. Honestly, I’m all for it. When the two companies push to outdo each other, it’s the fans that benefit.

  • Has there ever been good blood between D.C. and Marvel? Marvel came in 40 years ago and kicked DC off the top of the Comics Heap, and they’ve been outselling them ever since.
