DC Comics declares all previous Crisises null and avoid: Apparently this came as a shock

The other day Dan DiDio, co-publisher of DC Comics stated that all the prior Crisises that have occurred - Final, Infinite, Zero Hour, Crisis - never occurred in the new continuity and for whatever reason this has pissed some comic nerds off. I'm not a fan of the reboot, but duh, of course those events never happened. It's a brand new continuity. At this point, it just sounds like people are nitpicking for the sake of nitpicking.

Not that it really matters, mind you. DC is addicted to reboots and this new one will be lucky to last more than a year before it gets undone. That folks, is why DC struggles against Marvel, because they reboot their continuity so many times, it confuses and scares off potential new fans who don't want to have to rely on a flowchart to figure out what's going on with their favorite characters or titles. It also wouldn't hurt if they'd stop skanking their female characters up.
