Today is the official day of the DC Comics reboot where every character in its stable is being knocked back down to issue # 1. Some fanboys are up in arms over this decision, but I kind of see why DC decided to start things over. They’re basically giving comic book n00bs like myself a chance to pick up one of their series from the beginning rather than coming in mid-run and not knowing what the f*ck is going on.

For those of you that may take your fandom to the next level I found a video that’ll make you chuckle. In the DC reboot parody below you’ll get to hear a short conversation that more or less sums up every comic book forum’s b*tching trolls arguments for why they don’t agree with DC’s decision.
