    Mort Weisinger is credited with creating Johnny Quick in MORE FUN COMICS 71 and the first artist to work on the feature was Chad Grothkopf, but with issue 74 and 75, the pencils are by Jerry Robinson...

    The DGA rules are pretty clear that Cathy Yan is the director. To call Chad Stahelski the "new director" is misleading and click-baity. At best he's a second unit director or a first assistant...

    Didn't Vixen screw up Vixen? Megalyn Echikunwoke has played and voiced Mari, yet it seems like she wasn't available for awhile to play the character in live action, so they had to write around that...

    The 1940s JSA and the DC stories of their members from that period is the hook. If I can't have that, then I'm just not interested. They can do whatever they want with the timeline after that, but...

    Talia should not be called "Talia al Ghul." It always bugs me when I see that. Ra's al Ghul is the name that the unknown man was given--as the Demonhead. Al Ghul isn't the family name. Back in the...

    See what I said above.

    If you really needed an explanation for BC's anti-ageing then just say that either she was being kept young by Johnny Thunder's Thunderbolt (an explanation that could cover...

    I find that they cast an actor to play the character, but then as they go along they discover where the strengths of the actor are and then they write the character for the actor. So Echo Kellum is...

    If someone doesn't say good-bye, how do you know the phone conversation has ended? I imagine the person at the other end being confused and wondering what just happened.

    I remember the late, great comic book fan Rich Morrissey opining on the ages of the DC characters, back when DC had a message board, and his position was that the stories happened when they happened...

    The BC retcon happened in the summer of 1983 and COIE started at the beginning of 1985. So this retcon was really only valid for a year and a half. It's easy to just disregard it and say it's an...

    Here's something that bugs me of late, but it's something that usually happens on TV news broadcasts and youtube videos and sometimes documentaries. Someone says something and at the same time in big...

    I object to either SWAMP THING (1982) or THE RETURN OF SWAMP THING (1989) being classified as failed movies. I've seen both--I actually saw RETURN first, in the movie theatre, and then saw the first...

    I assume that, since Brandon Routh appearing on ARROW as Ted Kord/Blue Beetle got nixed, they don't have permission to use the character. That may have changed, but I haven't heard anything. I think...

    Are comics meant to be a permanent medium? I think one of the things that fueled their popularity in their heyday was their transitory nature. Nothing gold can stay. If you really want work that's...

    I think if there was a very real chance that he could lose--and if it was up to him--he would prefer to say he was leaving the office because he had better things to do. He hates to lose. Better to...

    Seems strange the ones that people think can't be done and the ones they think should be done.

    I've never read the modern version of Secret Six, but the classic version is quite practical--that...

    I've been asking myself why Donald Trump is bothering to run for a second term. He's gotten what he wanted. He's not going to be thrown out of office before this term ends--and after this term is...

    I always hated Garfield. Back in the day, I didn't know that Jim Davis had cynically created the comic strip to get rich. But I could tell that this was the motive, because it was drawn in such a...

    I think it really depends on what's being printed, for what kind of paper stock works best.

    The old comics were pencilled and inked with the newsprint in mind. Those comics were letter-pressed...
