>>116353334oh hey, your request was the reason I finally sat down and read the whole thing, thanks for that. I don't have any other storytimes planned until the weekend of pain on friday, but I might find something or other to do between then and now.

The end, and what an end it is! A truly monumental undertaking that managed to stick the landing perfectly. It might sound corny, but 52 made me fall in love with DC again. Anyway, thank you all for reading, I'll see you next storytime!

>>116354633Sorry you couldn't find the writer's notes pages, but I did find this for youfunnybookbabylon.com/2007/05/10/secrets-of-the-52-breakdowns/>So, I’ve been looking at Keith Giffen’s breakdowns on 52thecomic.com, and I noticed that different scenes have different font and numbering styles on the cues (like “13 BOOSTER:” as opposed to just “BOOSTER:” in a different font) in different scenes. So I took a look at it, and it seemed kind of obvious that the different writers use different cues.>Geoff Johns: Times New Roman, “1. CHARACTER”>Greg Rucka: Times New Roman, “1 CHARACTER”>Grant Morrison: Arial, “CHARACTER”>Mark Waid: Courier? (a typerwriteresque font), “1 CHARACTER”>This is what I came up with. The final tally:>Grant Morrison – 310 pages (29%)>Greg Rucka – 281 pages (25%)>Mark Waid – 244.5 pages (23%)>Geoff Johns – 244.5 pages (23%)52 #11-2 – Keith Giffen?3-5 – Greg Rucka6-9 – Grant Morrison10 – Geoff Johns11-13 – Greg Rucka14-19 – Geoff Johns20-22 – Greg RuckaAnd it goes on for all the issues

>>116353293dang OP, I just learned that the digital versions of the four-trade collection contain all the extra notes. I assumed those trades were removed when the giant 2-volume edition was released, but the internet never forgets.Regarding that Veronica Cale sequence in the last thread, here's what Giffen has to say

>>116354547>Sobek became Boots

>>116353293Thanks as someone who only got into comics the last few years this was an awesome read

>>116353744Plead user here. Like the other user pointed out the ads are insufferable on mobile.

>>116354633Thanks for the storytime.And was 52 so great because it felt more like a DC universe than just Trinity and Batwank?Was it good, because they had a goal in mind?

>>116354806So were these 4 the main writers?Was Didio involved? Because this is much different than the new 52.

>>116355982Didio was the executive editor of the entire line at the time.He infamous said that "Countdown would be 52 done right," but that's usually taken out of context. Countdown (to Final Crisis) was another weekly book that launched right after this weekly book ended, and Didio had a much stricter eye on it.There are notes from the writers (and the editor Siglain) that mention that they were hiding pages and plot points from Didio, leading to some fights because people were not getting their plots done in time.So when Didio said that Countdown would be "52 done right," he meant it would have a stronger editorial hand. 52 also kind of failed to do what the main premise was: show how every status quo from the One Year Later stories came about.Countdown was also trash, and completely contradicted Final Crisis.Those four writers were the architects of the post-infinite crisis. Johns continued the Booster Gold story in an ongoing series, and Rucka continued some of the spy stuff with Checkmate (and eventually Batwoman: Elegy)

>>116353835How long do you think it took before he tried "I'm sorry" and how pissed do you think he got when that didn't work?

>>116353935wait did i miss something, I thought the lady in white was Diana? who's WW in this?

>>116356098So despite it wasnt what DC wanted, it was good, because it was writer driven.So DC, or editorial, decided to have more influence to make writers write what they want but doomed it, because editorials or DCs goal was bad?

>>116356329it's donna.Cassie even calls her Donna

>>116356332That's basically it. There's some fault with Morrison too. He didn't want to tell editorial what exactly his plans for Final Crisis were, other than it involved the New Gods dying off page and then being revealed as inhabiting the bodies of regular people.So he told Didio, don't use The New Gods for a while.But all Didio seemed to hear was "new gods die," and hired Jim Starlin to write "DEATH OF THE NEW GODS" as a miniseries leading in to Final Crisis, use them in Amazons Attack, and all through Countdown.So Final Crisis is an event where it's way better to just read what Morrison wrote instead of all the other tie-ins and lead-ins (I like Legion of 5 Worlds though)

>>116356349d'oh. I'm an idiot. thanks user

>>116356639>Morrison:The new gods will die and get reborn. So dont use them till we are there>Didio:Ok, they will be important. Lets publish some books. Later on or while everything is happening, it will get important and sell. Or at least we can publish a trade and mke bucks with tying it in with 52!Guess karma doesnt like greed. Understandable that Morrison got suspicious that his plot strings might get tainted!

>>116357067moz was still an ass for new 52 supes thpugh

>>116354279How did readers think about this idea when it came out? Were they down with the new multiverse being a bunch of identical realities that diverged when a giant space moth came in and ate parts of their history?

>>116358470People were just happy that the multiverse was back

>>116353835It was Chocolate egg cream. And he did guess in the end. He should have tried some nonsense like afjiov.zcvijofjnzlvkcxmv or something along those lines

>>116353915>>116353924Love that Buddy and Ellen got their happy ending
