    One shouldn't remember that DiDio wasn't working in a vacuum. He always worked with several people around him, that quite probably had different visions on what stories DC should tell, and how to...

    They are both equally deserving.

    But I'd say that the world needs to see heroes like Oracle far more than it needs to see heroes like Batgirl. There are also far more heroes like Babsgirl around...

    I really doubt the higher-ups as WB or AT&T measure the talent pool of DC.

    However, they can and do measure if a department suddenly starts bleeding people, especially senior (that is, hard to...

    Comics writing definitely has its own grammar, style, and requirements. The qualities of story itself might be similar, but the way it is conveyed is drastically different.

    I doubt we can apportion blame exactly between the two, but at their level they arguably both failed to do their job to protect and help the people who Berganza harassed. Even if they didn't know....

    A creep like Berganza can be fired, but he was there for quite some time, and didn't get fired until the whole matter became public. So while Berganza might be...

    DC needs a publisher, not a writer.

    I think that's an important distinction to make. The job of the publisher is to hire and manage editors, and to help hire writers. A publisher might get to set...

    Karen Berger, yes.

    However, if we look at more recent history, you have the whole Berganza situation that festered for years.
