I don't expect everyone to embrace this relaunch with open arms, but there are a number of other, more sensible alternatives to making a twat of yourself at a large, public event. Write to DC, complain on your blog, debate on the message boards or (here's a radical notion) give the comics a chance and if you don't like them, DON'T BUY THEM! Spend your money on something that does still give you pleasure! When you think of all the worthy causes that public protest has been used for over the years, civil rights, peace, freedom, doesn't protesting against the absence of Superman's red knickers trivialise it all just a little bit? I'm not saying that these people shouldn't do their little protest walk, I'm just saying they're all wankers.
