Farewell Gotham

So apparently DC is moving from New York to L.A. In the great scheme of things this means nothing at all, and yet I'm a little disappointed, for it's always been a dream of mine to visit the New York offices where some of my favourite stories were written and drawn. The trope of the costumed hero took root in New York, and it seems somehow wrong that Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and their friends are being transplanted to the west coast. Oh, not that the stories will take place there, but I can't help but think it'll be tougher to capture the feel of Metropolis or Gotham from California.

First World problems? Earth-Prime problems, perhaps.

Hopefully they leave most of the current writers and editors behind.
