    The real question is why they don't cross paths more often.

    Mine keeps a pretty good stock. Not as good as what I can find at bookstores, but they keep a decent selection. With my LCS discount I pay about the same amount for a trade from them as I would at...

    Yeah pretty sure that's Swamp Thing.



    For supporting cast you can bring back Haly. Pretty much everyone else from the New52 (Higgins?) run is dead (and not worth bringing back) or evil. But...

    And I think that's what a lot of people are missing.

    This doesn't strike me as DC just shifting to new distributors. This strikes me as DC sliding away from the direct market completely and this...

    I think we can assume that is very much the case. I mean, what're the alternatives? Digital comics are popular but comic publishers haven't figured out how to really profit from them and trying to go...

    No, that's what I'm saying. Did Ivy start making this shift because that's what DC does with popular female villains, or was it in response to Harls?

    I'm inclined to think that Ivy was headed for...

    I think it's a stone cold move to pull right now when a lot of shops are struggling and not sure if they'll be able to overcome their losses from the shutdown.

    But I also think that, for DC...

    I think Loeb had some interesting parallels and contrasts he made good use of.....but his entire run was basically "Batman = dark! Superman = light! Batman mean! Superman nice!" It was interesting...

    What's up with the BoP book anyway? It's out of continuity, I'm told? I was interested until I saw Harls there. I'm fine with her having her federal record cleaned by her time in the Squad, and I'm...

    Agreed. It's a good take on the post-Crisis version of the character but it doesn't have the scope to be (for me) a definitive Superman.

    You're not wrong, but I do think comics could achieve a similar level of cohesiveness; it'd require a dedicated continuity editor or two (or if DC has a similar position already, that person needs to...

    I think the Court did recruit young, they just didn't freeze anyone until they were adults. Weren't they getting ready to nab Dick after his parents died, but Bruce got there first? They definitely...

    Yeah those ripple effects can be great. Hell Morrison's whole Action run was built off ripple effects. I don't want to get rid of those. What I'm saying is audiences are...

    If I remember right, the Talons operate on a regular basis until they're edging out of their primes, probably mid-late 20's or so. Then they get frozen to ensure they don't age out of being useful,...
