Watch Out For Spoilergeddon in Tomorrow's Comic Books

When Bleeding Cool runs stories about comic books that contain spoilers, we do so with [SPOILERS]in the headline, or even (Spoilers) if our caps lock isn't locked, even {Major Spoilers} or [FINAL PAGE SPOILERS] if that's what's coming.

There is an audience for such things, but there is also an audience who wants the opposite of spoilers and we do out best to give them fair warning. And it can be done, I managed to see The Last Jedi three months after release and didn't have a clue about you know what. Whereas I will never forgive Newsarama for putting the death of Tara in Buffy without warning on its front page, when it was weeks from airing in the UK.

This year we have seen bigger spoiler headlines from mainstream media giving the comic book game away, from the New York Times to CBR. And a tendency for people to post spoilers on social media, even ones they've read on Bleeding Cool, without sufficient warning.

So here's the word. Tomorrow it will be Spoilergeddon. I am informed by retail sources that the likes of The Walking Dead #186, Batman #60, The Exterminated, Green Lantern #2, Venom #9, Justice League #13, Doomsday Clock #8, Star Wars #58, The Wicked + The Divine #40, even bloody Shazam #1 will be full to the brim with major plot twists, deaths, surprise appearances, reappearances and the like.

And all the kinds of stories that could be ruined for those who want to be surprised by a stray headline or tweet.

So… at this point, our best advice is to get off social media. Don't read news sources. Normally I wouldn't run such a warning but with so many books undergoing so many plot twists, if you don't it will be inevitable that you will be spoiled.

Bleeding Cool, for all its spoilerness, will preserve a spoiler-free environment if that's what you want. But click on a spoiler article and all it's down to you…
