    I always buy Miracle Whip. That's what my parents always bought and that's what I'll always buy. I would never switch to mayonnaise. I live in fear that Miracle Whip might one day be...

    If you look at the early work of Pablo Picasso and Jack Kirby, you can see that they were both very skilled artists who had learned the basic rules of drawing. Becoming a great artist is breaking...

    Blackhawk is a peculiar case. Because I would argue that, even more than the Justice Society, the Blackhawks should be anchored to World War Two. It's what gave them purpose--the members of the team...

    The costume is pretty comic book accurate, but seeing it in live action it looks even more comic booky than it did in the comics.

    I've been reading the early Legion stories--and while the very first story is set in the 30th century, a good many stories after that were set in the 21st century. I knew this was the case before,...

    The 1966 Batmobile was the first one I saw. But in the comics, Batman had a sportscar that looked a lot more modern and the kind of thing you would expect him to have. By contrast the T.V. Batmobile...

    I seem to recall other stories besides the Bates & Maggin one where they gave some explanation of the time differential. Really, you just have to accept that there's some reason for it, but let's not...

    Off topic: It would be nice to have a comic collection of every title numbered 123.

    I'm always in favour of the desires of the creators of the characters. Because it's their creation. I don't agree with all those who think that the fans own the character. The period that the creator...

    I kind of knew that. :P

    In my mind there's a debate whether rap is song or sound poetry. But I don't think most people make that distinction. It's all the same thing--Homer is rapping.

    It's a tail wagging the dog thing. The reason Levitz wrote that story where the J.S.A. drops out of sight in 1951 was because they were cancelled in 1951--ALL-STAR COMICS became ALL-STAR WESTERN. So...

    In the beginning, all literature was orally communicated. And to help them remember, the bards would sing the lines--often with other instruments to keep the rhythm. These stories were only written...

    There's an office boy in ACTION COMICS 6 (November 1938) which is assumed to be Jimmy Olsen--which would put him appearing in the comics before the radio show. This office boy keeps showing up until,...

    In the Marston Wonder Woman of the 1940s, there was an Atlantis under the sea. This was divided among two monarchies--one was Aurania ruled by the good Queen Eeras and the other was Venturia ruled by...

    Of course ALL-STAR SUPERMAN is after the period I'm talking about, but yes this is the kind of material they should be doing alongside the regular ongoing continuity. They need to do both--put out...

    Joni (Amanda Seyfried) had a burgeoning romance with Reggie (Michael B. Jordan) on ALL MY CHILDREN--but they never really paid that off. It seemed to me those two actors were wasted on that soap....

    It's still a lot to read--but maybe I'm just a slow reader and everyone is smarter than me.

    I think people are more likely to see the adaptations rather than read the thing itself. Which, as I...

    Ken Barlow (William Roache) has been on CORONATION STREET since it began in 1960. This is a pretty well known fact, so not something I'd consider trivia--I'm almost embarrassed to post it here,...

    Worldwide and domestic it's BAD BOYS. SONIC is in third place worldwide and second place domestic. THE EIGHT HUNDRED is in second place worldwide and will probably take over first place soon. BIRDS...

    South Africa had got rid of apartheid earlier than on our Earth. That and Quebec separation were both during the Paul Levitz run--the Quebec one was in a J.S.A. story, but the apartheid might have...

    Definitely for me, in the 1960s, if I saw a Hollywood movie star was now doing a T.V. show, I assumed that something had gone very wrong in his life. Whereas, if the star of a T.V. show left to do...
