    I dropped out of buying current comics years ago.

    I mainly follow specific writers... and basically there were just too many cases where a writer I enjoyed was removed from a book after a few...

    It was a constant theme in Neil Gaimanís Sandman, of course that Dream could influence humans to better things.

    I donít know how it could be definitively proved...but I believe the mind constantly...

    I think you’re right. Given all the reboots, etc in recent years it would be perfectly possible for one of the A list characters to be written as gay. And it would mean a lot more, and be a far...

    I really liked a lot of stuff from his early career like “London’s Dark”, “Illegal Alien”, “Leave it to Chance” and so on. Not followed his stuff in recent years..but my own gut feeling is that his...

    I think so.

    Itís got to point where I think anybody with any nous ought to steer clear of putting anything into the public record.

    I don’t think they are essential.

    But I’m biased so probably best to seek wider opinion...my feeling is that all you need to know was explained by Alan Moore in his wonderful Swamp Thing...

    That’s exactly how I felt.

    Especially agree about opportunity to read some of the lesser known characters. When I started reading DC comics again after a long, long break I decided to look for...

    If she takes after dear old dad, she won’t be shy about throwing a few people under the bus if it helps her cause.

    Maybe good idea to make sure her physical security is well secured....

    Her father “Captain Bob” was one of the biggest (in all respects) con men in second half of 20th century...one of those “successful businessmen” that ends up owing the banks so much money that the...

    This weeks DC sale on Comixology

    Yes..know there's one every week...but think this weeks is best one for ages, featuring a ton of "vintage" old issues.

    For the first time for months am going to buy some stuff:-

    Certainly a very unpleasant character...I think he took the “wrong side” (well the side I oppose..) on practically every political issue. He supported the McCarthy witch hunt, for example.

    But he...

    Jeez.

    Do reporters ever ask police chiefs, mayors, etc something along the lines ďYouíve seen this picture, can you explain to me why this couple were not arrested?Ē

    Characters like the Major in Fawlty Towers (Which Cleese wrote) do it all the time.

    And clearly playing characters that he actually despises is something Sacha does frequently. Look at Borat, for...

    But isnít that effectively the same as John Cleese playing Basil Fawlty? (i.e. heís playing a deliberately exaggerated character in order to ridicule certain traits.)

    I guessed when I posted comment that you would have thought about subject a zillion times more than I had...not surprised youíd considered the theory and had good grounds for rejecting it.

    I agree there’s not enough evidence to take Bob Kane off credits altogether.

    But he was such a tricky character that I wouldn’t place any real faith in “the story we know...”.

    Bob might have...

    I don’t think Jonah Hex can fairly be discussed in a vacuum. And neither do you apparently...as you regard the absence of other DC western characters as critical.

    I agree that Jonah’s confederate...

    Not really convinced that it would make any real difference if DC was currently publishing a couple of other Western comics featuring likes of Bat Lash, Pow Wow Smith, Nighthawk, etc.

    He’s not a hero, he’s not a villain.

    He’s a guy who has incredibly horrible things done to him as a kid and in turn does some horrible things himself...along with some heroic things.

    I read a fair few of his novels many years ago. And a few of his short stories, which I think I think I enjoyed even more.

    Certainly worth a read to see what you think. The novel enjoyed most was...

    Heís an unpleasant piece of work, yet also oddly like-able. (I think...obviously opinions will vary).

    For me, this (the Ostrander Suicide Squad run) is one of the great DC runs and one of its...

    A mix.

    No “absolute rules”, but usually Kindle when travelling, library books when at home.

    And comics...mainly read via comixology.
