    CrossGen put out some beautiful art, but they were among the first publishers to give up on single issue stories and write everything for trade paperback publication. So their stories were good, if...

    So apparently, I missed something. What's up with Tony Isabella and Black Lightning? I know he created the character, but why is he criticized so much? I'm currently rereading my old comics, and I...

    Sorry, saw the thread title and couldn't resist. Since I'm not reading current comics, I don't even know what this thread is about.

    I was beginning to wonder if anything in this thread would be truly controversial. Between this and the people liking the Batman and Robin movie, this thread is finally living up to its title.

    Technically, the Golden Age Starman, but I probably didn't realize it at the time. I started reading comics shortly before Zero Hour, so I saw the JSA in the Zero Hour miniseries, without knowing who...

    I've seen this mentioned a lot on these forums (not just this thread). When do you think this "writing for the trade" thing really took off? Not just at DC, but everywhere.

    Separating Vertigo out into its own thing in the 90s was a great idea. Sandman, Hellblazer, Books of Magic, etc can easily interact with each other, but are better off not being in the main DC...

    If you liked Ordway's Power of Shazam! graphic novel, you should check out his ongoing series of the same title that followed it. It ran for 47 issues in the mid-late 90s. The characters also...

    The idea of Superman having a kid with Lois Lane has been around in the comics for decades. There were imaginary future stories from the 1950s showing Mr. and Mrs. Superman with their Superbaby.

    If you look up Darkstars issues 18-20, they all show Wally on the cover, with a "Featuring Flash" blurb to attract attention. I know he's in there. I'm just wondering if it's a good enough story to...

    Every company has its highs and lows. That's why I was asking if people thought it was just DC that's bad now, or if it's a trend in comics in general.

    For me, it's not about "studying" the past. It's about reading comics I enjoy. I bought a lot of comics in the 90s, and I'm rereading them now, after reading almost no comics in the last 15ish years....
