DC Comics did not celebrate Independence Day this year with their fans on social media.
The comic book publishing giant had nary a social media post on Twitter or Facebook to support the American holiday.
Instead on July 3rd they posted a tweet about DC Daily’s final episode on their DC Universe streaming service.

One has to wonder why they would not post a message on Independence Day like they had done in previous years.
What do you make of DC Comics not celebrating Independence Day on social media despite celebrating numerous other cultural events and holidays throughout the year and previously celebrating Independence Day for at least the past four years?
