I knew a big revelation was coming at the end of Civil War #2, thanks to some “insider information.” (Actually it was a reminder from the Newsarama Powers-That-Be that one of our policies is to NOT spoil comics stories before a comic is even out). I wasn’t sure what the revelation was going to be, but I knew that a) I wanted to read it for myself and b) if it was as big as it was hyped to be, comic fans would be talking about it all day Wednesday.
So I figured I’d be safe from any spoilers if I stayed away from comic book message boards and blogs for a few hours on Wednesday … at least until I had a chance to get to a comic shop and read it for myself.
Little did I know I also needed to avoid the Yahoo home page. (MAJOR CIVIL WAR #2 SPOILERS after the jump) …
So ten minutes before I was set to head to my comic shop, I decided to do a quick check of my email, which led me to Yahoo, which led me to this:
Dammit all to hell.
As a comic blogger, I commend Marvel and DC’s efforts to “get some ink” on Civil War, Batwoman, Infinite Crisis and related events and storylines … it’s kind of our bread and butter. But as a fan, I ask: can we at least teach the New York Post and Yahoo about proper “spoilers warning” etiquette?
