Today is the last day of a whole universe. In just a few hours everything we knew will be gone. It will be known as the Pre-Flashpoint Universe, or the DCoU, or simply the Old Universe. Whatever we will call it starting tomorrow, it is time to say good bye to it.
This is not only the beginning of a new era for DC, but also a huge attempt to revitalize the comic book industry; and even those who are still going through those denial, anger, or contempt phases, have to at least admit that it is a necessary move. As the industry is walking in brittle ice, most of the eggs are being put in this DCnU basket, so we must support it if we don't want to see comics die. There will be time later for complaints, recriminations, and I told you so's, but for now, give this new universe a chance and get your favorite hero's comic(s).
Today, this blog also gives Shayera Thal a.k.a. The Silver Age Hawkwoman a farewell. Let's really, really hope that it is not a permanent good bye, but just a see you soon. She might come back in the pages of "Savage Hawkman" or even in Earth-2 as a member of the "Justice Society"; after all, no news is good news, and no one in DC has said there will be no thanagarian Hawkwoman.
The Redheads Blog or "Chicas de Rojo" will come back on Thursday September 1st when a new era begins for Batgirl, Mera, and some other redhead you might know. For now, it is good bye Old Universe, and Welcome DCnU!
