    I stopped buying monthlies because the hit-to-miss ratio was way too low. I’m not a good fit for modern DC, because I don’t care for dark, don’t care for decompression and don’t care for endless...

    The art looks good, but I don’t get why you’d do a direct continuation of a specific movie and then change the character designs.

    I could see trying to avoid paying likeness fees, if that’s a...

    I love how the last panel on each page demands you keep reading. Theyíre like mini-cliffhangers. That drawing of Wes in his lab is fire.

    I also like how they describe the gas as smelling like...

    As the son of a human lighthouse keeper who just found out he’s half-Atlantean, short hair and no beard.

    For king of Atlantis, long hair and long beard.

    I like both. I’d give the edge to...

    Can’t say I’m surprised by this. Titans is the type of show where everyone must suffer and be plagued by their inner anguish. No way were we getting Dixon-era Tim.

    The best way is to dig through ratty cardboard boxes fillled with comics that smell of old newsprint at 25 cents a pop until you have a stack with covers too cool to resist. But, barring that...

    I really like her — partly because she’s a regular person. I like Stephanie, too, but now Tim is a superhero dating a superhero. And that’s part of his problem these days: As time has gone by, Tim...

    I’d forgotten about this. What a great bit in a great book.

    I really need to revisit the series — I hope they put the whole run up on DC Universe Infinite when it launches.

    Itís weird, lose the pulp trappings and my interest in the character disappears completely. Wes is interesting to me specifically because heís not a conventional superhero, and the later incarnation...

    2010s for me. The Ď90s were pretty awful comics in general, but I thought DC fared better than most publishers.

    Tim as Robin in his own book? And not by Tynion?...

    Tim as Robin in his own book? And not by Tynion? I’m in.

    There is a lot of beautiful art there. I had written off this event as filler, but now the smaller scale and interesting design work is...

    Brave and the Bold would be a nice outlet for the B-tier heroes now that DC has pared back its publication roster.

    I’d also vote for World’s Finest and a Tim Drake solo. And Super Sons.

    I’d...

    Alfred was fat in his first appearance but the iconic design is based on his serial actor, William Austin. Similarly, Superman serial actor Lyle Talbot had a big influence on the look of Lex Luthor...

    In terms of current visibility, the Sandman hasnít fared particularly well. But in terms of quality of stories, Sandman Mystery Theatre is one of the best books DC has ever done.

    Nice to see SMT getting so much love. I worry it’s growing increasingly obscure, and it was niche to begin with. Great book.

    I liked the first one for what it was. But now it’s starting to feel like an invasive weed.

    Yeah, if HBO Max were a $5 add-on indefinitely, I might rationalize it as an inevitable price increase for DC Universe. even though it almost doubles the price. But at $180 a year? On top of what...

    I don’t read Marvel, so my only basis of comparison is what I have now vs. what we’re getting in the future. If I add HBO Max, I’ll have the same catalog of back issues as now, fewer DC shows and a...

    Isn’t that what they’re doing now? The announcement says there will be 24,000 comics at launch next year, but there were already more than 23,000 by last May, according to one article. So we’re...

    I was hoping they would dump a bunch of new back issues on it to make up for the withdrawal of other media, but it doesn’t look like that’s happening. I’ll be curious to see how much exclusive...

    This is why I’m dropping modern DC. I don’t see how people can be invested in the endless reboots when we don’t even get the new status quo established before they move on to the next one.

    I...

    Agree. The Affleck suit shows it can be done. Weíre beyond the days when superhero outfits need to be black leather or bulky armor. I tend to think itís only a matter of time before we see the blue...
