DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio Responds to Fans

I'm sure you remember that we've done this before. Below you'll find a small collection of responses from DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio on various comments/questions from fans via his facebook page. DiDio is known for wiggling his way out of questions so be prepared for "answers" that could mean a lot or absolute horse crap. So what does DiDio talk about? Well, he's asked about the chance for an Absolute Edition of the Sinestro Corps War, the not-so-forgotten Flash Wally West and Keystone City and the existence of Connor Hawke, the Justice League shipping schedule, whether New Krypton or Death of Superman still happened, Zero Hour, Renee Montoya's role, who is the Blue Beetle, Vertigo going digital and more.
