COMICS: More On CRISIS 2015 From A "DC Comics Creator"; Pre-52 Continuity Still Exisits

It's clear that DC has something big planned for April 2015, and now an alleged DC Comics creator has confirmed some of the details on "the Band-Aid" project - we will see pre-52 and New 52 characters, and the pre-52 universe still exists. Somewhere. Check it out!

Several days ago, we uncovered some details on DC's mysterious April 2015 project - dubbed "The DC Band-Aid" by Bleeding Cool - and now an alleged "DC Comics creator" has provided more on the event. We knew that it will hit during the company's relocation to Burbank and will be produced in advance, and the creator confirms that pre-52 and New 52 characters will feature, but it seems that the conclusion of Geoff Johns' Forever Evil doesn't have anything to do with it despite previous speculation. Here's the full statement, courtesy of BC:

There still seems to be confusion among editorial, and thus, creators, as to what the title and plot actually are, and it has changed several times.

The current plot might be comparable to Marvel’s Contest of Champions/Secret Wars from back in the day.

As of now, it is intended to be in-continuity and not an Elseworlds-type story.

It will feature some pre-52 characters along with New52 characters. So, apparently, the old pre-52 universe still exists somewhere, although how this is possible without invalidating Flashpoint is not clear.

As of right now, it has nothing to do with Anti-Monitor – many in editorial were surprised when Geoff Johns brought that character back. Some didn’t know about it until that issue was printed. This is not the first time they have been surprised by a plot point in his books…

Some interesting stuff there. Reports on this rumoured 'new Crisis' will certainly continue, so keep it here for the latest on whatever DC is doing next April.

Is that good or bad?

It's very good, and even better if Blackjack is still posting random Gifs on your posts.

I tried to get into the New 52, but it just isn't the same. I'm reading about 10 titles right now. But Im glad they aren't just dumping the 50+ years of continuity they have. I can't wait for the return of that.
thebearjew - 6/17/2014, 6:27 PM
new 52 helped me get into comics back then but now that ive dug into the dcu so deep I was disappointed to learn that stuff I just read wasn't in continuity anymore

Good. Besides some of the costumes. pre-new 52 ftw.
XF14 - 6/17/2014, 6:29 PM
Im not surprised, they do still have certain books without the New52 logo. The most recent digital series Legends Of The Dark Knight I believe is (or at least I always saw it as) pre-52 DCU

Ahaha, thank you. BlackJack is an always reliable pal.

I saw it as Pre-52 as well (and Adventures of Superman, too).
JoJo1982 - 6/17/2014, 6:37 PM
This is like Days of Future Past movie all over again
MrBlackJack - 6/17/2014, 6:37 PM

Just stick with the New 52. It's fairly uncluttered. Don't muck it up.
blackandyellow - 6/17/2014, 6:39 PM
April 2015 is the 30th anniversary of Crisis on Infinite Earths. People have been speculating for a year that DC has something big planned to commemorate the anniversary.
blackandyellow - 6/17/2014, 6:40 PM
Future's End and Batman Eternal both end in April 2015 so they're going to lead directly into the event.
MrBlackJack - 6/17/2014, 6:41 PM
"Ahaha, thank you. BlackJack is an always reliable pal."

If there's a staypuffed article out there, I'm going to find it and muck it up. If I have to tear this site another asshole, I'm going to find it. I've got to, mister!
staypuffed - 6/17/2014, 6:42 PM
Yeah, I mentioned that in my last "Band-Aid" article.
mgeoff88 - 6/17/2014, 6:43 PM
I really hope this event leads to the New 52 being greatly improved.

@BatManHeisenberg The New 52 gave us a badass Aquaman. Then again, it also gave us a Superman who is an asshole.
blackandyellow - 6/17/2014, 6:44 PM

Word. I must've missed it.
JayJayCAW - 6/17/2014, 6:44 PM
The pre-52 stuff is probably going to be the alternate Earths from then, like how there was an Earth 2 & a Earth Two (notice the spelling) so it's gonna be something like that. Willing to bet it.

new fifty poo is for retards

You're a basic user why?

DeusExSponge - 6/17/2014, 7:49 PM
So is this going to going to reboot the DC universe to it's pre-52 universe or am I just jumping to conclusion?
typicalfanboy - 6/17/2014, 7:54 PM
in soviet russia, conclusion jumps you!
FastFlames - 6/17/2014, 8:34 PM
Hahah I love it!!
JackRyan9859 - 6/17/2014, 9:06 PM
time to end this New 52 garbage

Hhhhhhmmm Not sure what to think of this. Its definitely exciting news.

From what I'm hearing its supposed to be more of a soft reboot. Its not going to bring back pre 52 totally but more just smooth out the rough edges of the new 52. Which sounds good to me.

There are a lot of good things about the new 52 but is missing a lot of good things from pre new 52.

Aquaman is a bad ass. The JL is pretty cool. The updated costumes are great, especially Supermans. Wonder woman is cool as well. So there are a lot cool things that world be a shame to just disregard.
Especially since rebooting so soon would confuse the crap out of each other.

But the pre new 52 has the legacy characters. The Teen titans history. Donnna Troy. Bart Allen. Tim Drake. Clark and Lois. Ma and Pa Kent. The real JSA.

And anything to bring the REAL Wally West is welcomed.

If done right this could be a really good move that could please the fans of pre and new 52 fans and keep the best of both worlds.

IF done right. Which I'm sure DC will somehow screw up unfortunatly.
BlackIceJoe - 6/17/2014, 10:48 PM
Best news ever! I am not a fan of the New52 I preferred the old 52. So if the PreNew 52 is one of the 52 universes. I hope that DC will start selling comics from that universe too. Because like that one so much more then the New one.
Azbat - 6/18/2014, 12:07 AM
Wait... You mean to tell me I burned my pre-New 52 books (because they were non-canon now) for nothing? Crap. Does anyone know where to find the Knightfall trilogy for a low price? same for Batman: Hush and the Long Halloween.
Azbat - 6/18/2014, 12:09 AM
do they still print "Sword of Azrael?"
Mothchild - 6/18/2014, 1:53 AM
They could call it the New 104. That's catchy.
Dunejedi - 6/18/2014, 2:00 AM
That's a pretty long wind-up for an April Fool's joke.
Mothchild - 6/18/2014, 2:26 AM
Whoever this mystery guy is he doesn't sound too happy with what is going on at DC Comics.
dethpillow - 6/18/2014, 2:36 AM
@DeusExSponge - yes, it sounds like maybe there's a gun that's been jumped somewhere over there.

but just from this, it sounds like multiple universes, which i'd always thought was the case anyways when DC did their "things".

but then maybe i don't understand how DC works on this level. but this means then that when they did New 52 that everything died or stopped int Pre 52?

i'm used to Marvel, so this kind of stuff just seems like peanuts to me I guess, i don't see where there'd be any confusion over it.

What I don't understand is like as @MGeoff is saying... Aquaman is better now to a lot of people. But was it necessary to reboot Aquaman to make him better? Why couldn't they just do Aqua man a different way and and not mention it? i guess that's what i understand about the rebooting thing. what do u gain that you couldn't do before?

It seems like the kind of logic that happens when you don't really know what to do or don't really care. so u don't do what would fix the thing, but you make up all these reasons that have to be fixed and just keep thinking... yeah, once it's fixed, i'm just gonna knock this out. and it never works like that.
TheAmericanPatriot - 6/18/2014, 3:00 AM
LMAO!!! Just reboot already!
