And other readers like Manga4life have responded with a loud "I love this book, and I don't care about any previous incarnations of the character published by other companies. Dynamite has made me a fan of their version of the character" (excuse the paraphrase, but I believe this is essentially an accurate reconstruction of Manga4life's position on the topic). I suppose I could fall back on the argument that if Dynamite chose to respect the details of a character's previous incarnation, new readers wouldn't know the difference and would just accept whatever version of the character Dynamite decided to deliver to them. Seems like the easy answer, but maybe it's just not as easy to please everyone as it looks.
