    This actually brings up something that I kinda realized 20ish years ago, which has become much more pronounced since then: Comic books have a much more niche audience now than 40+ years ago, not...

    Post-Crisis Matrix Supergirl. Nobody liked her when she first appeared, the premise was convoluted, and she wasn't the REAL Supergirl, Superman's cousin. Then Peter David came along and wrote her...

    As mentioned above, I'm rereading Wally's run of the Flash from the 80s through early 00s, which I already own entirely in single issues, up to its first cancellation, including annuals and related...

    I actually just got to this while rereading the series. I really don't remember much from that time period, as I only read those issues once when I first bought them. This was a fun little fill in...

    I actually had those. Not the Supermobile or helicopter, but I had the van, newspaper truck, and cop car. I think there was also a city playset, with a building with ramps and stuff, to drive them...

    I already have the originals.

    But was Wally even in Crisis #8? That was a great spotlight issue for Barry Allen, featuring his death, but Kid Flash wasn't with him at the time. Wally didn't find...

    Christopher Priest is awesome. And that totally sounds like the type of thing he'd suggest. After all, this is the same guy who made the nickname "Crab Face Guy" for Kyle Rayner canon.

    And this is why DC thinks they can put out any garbage they want and still make a profit. Because people keep buying it.

    It's a short enough period of time that Bruce's behavior was part of a longer story thread that led to A Lonely Place of Dying, rather than an ongoing change to the character. It was intentional, and...

    "until Tim showed up"??? You make it sound like there was a significant time period in the comics between Jason's death and Tim's arrival. It was literally 6 months. Jason died in Batman #429, and...

    Because of when I started reading comics, Wally West was always my favorite Flash. And I really liked Bart as Impulse.

    In the same time period, I really liked the Bat-books of the 90s. Nightwing...

    You can definitely see in some of the later crossover events how they learned from these early attempts.
