    Game of Thrones was on the air for as long a time between FANTASTIC FOUR #1 and when Gerry Conway came to work for Marvel. Marvel practised continuity in that decade and it became big and dominant,...

    Per Conway's screed, he'd actually be pro-this-move, i.e. no-continuity, no-maturity, and keeping everything the way it was in the '70s.

    In other words, collateral damage. Which is what the entire series condemns the supes for doing. To the extent audiences give a character a pass for doing that just because she's a protagonist and so...

    First thing we need to discuss is exactly who we mean by "younger readers". Conway said that his aim was Middle Graders who were the right age for the first HP book (11-13 let's say).

    Here's the...

    I liked the covers for USM at the time. It felt very art-y. And certainly no other comic at the time looked like it. It had a look of video game CGI cutscene renders with photorealistic backgrounds....

    You know in the 19th Century, novels were published serially. Chapters came out monthly in magazines, that includes stuff like Oliver Twist and so on. Those books of the 19th Century were overlong...

    Ditko studied at the feet of Jerry Robinson, Joker's original artist and designer, so Goblin has a lot of Joker in him. He's Ditko's homage to the Clown Prince of Crime.

    That's true. Art Spiegelman said in the '80s that the comics readership faced a major threat from the 1978 Superman. He noted that comics genres and storytelling got away with their fantastic...

    The point is they were in a relationship but they never got to engagement any time. Harry never popped the question. She never said yes.

    Carl Barks' work on Donald Duck is like the most influential comics since the 40s...he inspired Osamu Tezuka, and through Tezuka all of anime, he inspired Robert Crumb, Art Spiegelman, and he...

    Huh? They were never engaged in the comics. The only person MJ was ever engaged to was Peter.

    I have some issues with the latest episode of The Boys. Hopefully this pays off later.

    The thing is the comics have a very strong anti-super message, a very strong message about collateral damage...

    As for the issue of non-Richards' family and friends count as members...the new Slott issue makes it clear that Iceman still considers it a honor to be briefly a FF member with a "4 on his chest" and...

    Right.

    Obviously things change over the decades, tastes change, children change. Education is another factor...college education is a lot higher than it used to be.

    Attitude to childhood has...

    I don’t find her pitiable at all. I find her interesting for the way her humanity reinforces her evil. But I don’t feel bad for a person who whines about being young and immortal and uses that to...

    Yeah, she played a racist with human feeling without dialing down the racism. Not easy to do. Racists like her deeply believe that they are right and the people they hate need to be brought down,...

    Harry Potter never changed to serve another audience. Each time a new book came out, new kids discovered the series and binge-read the volumes and all were the same Middle-Graders who started the...

    Look do you agree that Superman's rogues is better than average if not necessarily at the top. Do you agree his rogues are better than Iron Man?

    Because that was the thrust of my argument.

    I said Superman was in the top 4 or 5 at the least and that his rogues are better than a lot of others.

    As for Flash's rogues...sure they were the first to call itself a "rogues' gallery" and...

    People exaggerate how much of a rabble rouser Superman was in the '30s. The way it's made out it's as if Superman was reading out Karl Marx in-between every tall building he leapt.

    He advocated...

    Here's the thing...Nobody's rogues gallery's is as good as Batman's and Spider-Man's. Next to that, no hero measures to it.

    But Superman's rogues are at least better than Wonder Woman's, Green...

    That fits. I kind of think that Marvel heroes see Jameson as their village idiot, someone who they mock but who they also have some kind of affection and respect for. Certainly, that's Peter's...
