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.

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.

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
