Over DC Reaction

DC Struggling with Release Times”) was a primary reason for not renewing his membership.
Founding member Brian Hibbs has announced that he is ending his membership in retailer organization ComicsPro “because of the reactions of the Board to recent DC moves.”
“I’m no longer a member of the organization as of this month,” Hibbs posted in the comments area of an article he wrote about DC’s allocations of its 3D covers in September (see “DC Says 3-D Motion Covers Will Be Allocated”). The article, posted on SavageCritics.com, was titled “The Staggeringly epic Incompetence of DC Entertainment;” Hibbs’ views on the DC allocations are clear.
In an additional comment, Hibbs said, “The org that I formed was intended to look out for the little guy; the current Board seems much more interested in keeping the big guys big. Democracy in action, I suppose, so I vote with my dollars.”
