Irradiated Memes 6: The Pervert Suit Problem 4

8) Well, That Didn't Work; Now What?

Problem: Those damn consultants are now more popular than our properties, and they've killed them all off, too.
Solution: Hire some more consultants.
Corollary: They've got a problem: Follow Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, and Peter Milligan.
Extrapolation: Do what they did! Kill everyone! Make everything grown up and gritty! Yes, that'll do it!
Result: Oh, who cares.

Creative Mythology Analysis: Adolescent regression didn't help Marvel last time, and dressing it up in grown-up clothes won't help it this time either. Still, DC's catching up with Marvel at last, and is in the same position. Oh well.

I dunno. I think it's too early to tell. I think that when you're analyzing art you need 'bout ten years of distance to tell what's really important. (Cause influence is the biggest indicator of importance.)
