    The bar to be considered "good" is far higher for any disadvantaged group, be it women, queer people, black people, or something else.

    Enjoyment is of course deeply subjective, but I think your criticism misses the mark a bit. Harleen is AFAIK the first real look at the character of Harleen Quinzel—as opposed to Harley Quinn—we have...

    Thanks for clearing that up, nebezial. The Bleeding Cool article didn't mention this was for marketing/ordering purposes.

    With delays for Criminal Insanity as well, and frequent delays and slippages for other titles, I wonder about DC's editorial side.

    I know lead times from delivery of manuscript to published book...

    Stjepan Sejic has posted some more stuff over on Twitter.

    First one. Some fun stuff, and some symbolism there with Harleen holding Joker's arm in a similar way to the earlier image of Ivy holding...

    Have to mostly agree with SilverScarlet.

    Art-wise it's decent, except that Cheetah doesn't really look good. Also, what's up with Maggie's sword and fighting stances? It's like McKeown only know...

    No discussion about #2, and nothing yet for #3?

    Fun to see Poison Ivy go She-Hulk. And "a disturbance in the green"? Heh. But I think DC still is scared of showing Harley and Ivy as a real couple,...

    If you want discuss plots and spoilers, perhaps best to do so in the dedicated thread for the mini.

    Racially integrated US forces are even older than that. Charles Ball wasn't even the first black man to serve in the US Navy.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    What ed2962 said. Science fiction fandom is sort of the grandmother of all modern fandoms. Creaky, but still reasonably vital and around. People like Julie Schwarz, Isaac Asimov, Alfred Bester, and...

    For movie Diana, her assuming the Diana Prince identity and working at the Louvre makes sense. After defeating Ares, she is left without a mission in...

    Ah, I misremembered about the question from the trans woman. Thanks for pointing that out.

    However, I still think the exchange is rather weakly depicted by Morrison and Paquette.

    The trouble with the "wokeness" of Morrison's Earth One is two-fold.

    The first is that it is largely superficial. Steve Trevor is made a black man, but the only thing that results in is some...

    I do think that looking at Batman and Catwoman requires that one looks beyond the simple good-evil dichotomy that largely dominates a lot of superhero comics. Catwoman isn't so much a...

    Oh, I'm not doubting you, more that I checked the thread title and it says #85 / #750, but when I checked I didn't find anything relating to #85 from DC. So I guess they did their count correctly.
