Memorial Day, 2011. It's reported that DC Comics is rebooting their universe and going forward under the branding "The New-52!" Do you remember where you were when you heard the news? Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) do! This week's classic reupload is their discussion of The New-52!, their feelings on hearing the news, what they felt worked... and what didn't! Don't worry, this isn't a total DC-chat, Marvel wasn't going to let them get away with bombarding the shops with new #1's... that's their gig! Our semi-recentstorians also discuss Marvel rebooting their last remaining Silver-Age "legacy numbered" title, Uncanny X-Men. They wrap up their conversation by discussing the passing of industry legend, Dwayne McDuffie.
Also, Did you know: DC Comics didn't officially drop from the Comics Code Authority until 2011? Neither did Archie!
Have any memories of the year 2011? Is it too soon to be nostalgic? Let us know!
